ARNICA MONTANA (Arn.) – آرنیکا مونٹانا
Ailments after injuries is the central idea for Arnica esp. where we have haematomas. Arnica will absorb the haematoma even after many years. We must bear in mind that Arnica should not be given in open wounds which bleed.
The patient does not want to be approached or touched because of the fear of being hurt. We meet this in women who cannot have sexual intercourse due to their fear of penetration.
