Preparation : Tellurium is triturated with lactose sugar.
Remedy Profile : Tellurium met. is most appropriate for people who are excitable and irritable, with a disposition that is sometimes described as “rough and angular.”
Skin disorders are the characteristic focus of Tellurium met., including conditions such as psoriasis, ringworm, herpes, and eczema on the eyelids and behind the ears. A key symptom associated with the remedy is a characteristic smell of garlic in the perspiration, which tends to burn and irritate the skin. Skin symptoms are often circular or ring- shaped, and may occur in conjunction with severe back pain.
The remedy may also be used for back pain that is typically worse for coughing, sneezing, or straining when passing a stool. It may help back pain after injury, spinal irritation, ruptured intervertebral disks, and pain that radiates down the legs. In addition, it may be effective for eye and ear infections, especially ear infections that produce a discharge that smells like fish brine.
