Characteristics.
      On the analogy of the action of Thyroid in myxedema, Ooph. Has been used with much success in cases of suffering following excision of the ovaries, and for the climacteric sufferings of women.
      I have had good results with it in such cases in the lower triturations.
      It has been suggested as a remedy in ovarian cysts.
      E. Saalfeld (quoted H. W., xxxii. 296), in view of Landau’s observations on the effect of Ooph. On the nervous sufferings of women at the climacteric, gave Ooph. to women suffering from acne rosacea and other skin disorders of the climacteric.
      A woman, 20, after double oophorectomy had lichen-like eczema.
      This was greatly relieved by Ooph. as well as the accompanying nervous symptoms and adiposity.
      He obtained good results also in some non-climacteric cases as: (1) Acne and seborrhea in chlorotic women.
