Dr. Burnett has shown that ringworm of the scalp and pityriasis Versicolor on the body are indications of tubercular diathesis, and they respond to this remedy.

William Boericke in his Materia Medica writes: The dose is important. Should not be given below the thirtieth, and not repeated frequently. One dose a week often sufficient to bring about a reaction. It is RAPID IN ACTION, and good results ought to be seen soon, otherwise, there is no need for repetition.
