Mercurius Iodatus Flavus [merc-i-f]
(proto-iodide of mercury.) There are sore throats that especially call for the proto-iodide. When in sore throats the inflammation and pain predominantly affect the <right> side, and there is a tendency to remain on the right side, or if the Merc. state is present and the sore throat goes from <right> to <left>, it is the proto- iodide you want. The patient that needs this remedy for constitutional troubles will be worse during rest and from a warm room and better in the open air.
