Case 1:

A 40 years old lady came for treatment of cracked, ulcerated and painful nipples. There were small warts on both her breasts. Her skin was very dry, especially the skin of her hands, which was chapped. She had occasional itching of the warts. No other peculiar symptoms were present. I decided to treat her with an anti-sycotic drug.

Thuja 1M three doses was given followed by SL for 15 days. On her next visit, there was no change in the condition. A reference to Boerickes repertory Pg 918- Warts on breast Castor-equi was given as the only remedy. So, Castor-equi 30 one dose daily was given for 10 days. A month later there were no warts on the breast and her cracked nipples had healed.

(This remedy is highly useful in cracked and ulcerated nipples Editor)
