Characteristics.
      Burnett (Organ.
      Diseases of Women, 115) tells how he learned of a herbalist the use of Trit-r., the herbalist having cured with it a patient of Burnett’s, a man suffering from dysuria.
      Burnett has found it no less valuable for women than for men.
      "Frequently in dysuria from an inflamed state of the urethra, I found Trit. right, ten drops in a little water, frequently repeated, of prompt effect, often giving complete relief in a few hours, and if the ailment is primarily in the urethra the relief is an abiding cure, if from a tugging of the heavy womb, it is only relief." He gives this case: A window, suffering from complete procidentia uteri and very bad hemorrhoidal bleeding, wrote that she was driven almost mad with painful micturition, the burning and straining were truly awful.
      Trit. right, as above, was ordered, and brought a most grateful letter from the patient.
      She keeps a supply always at hand.
