Pulsatilla: Acne during puberty. Rash after pork or salami indigestion. Itching that worsens in the evening and at night, from the warmth of the bed, with insomnia. It is particularly suited for the treatment of tuberculin, whose venous congestion (chills, cyanosis of the extremities) and habitual eliminations (yellowish discharge, thick, non-irritating) express well the intoxication.
