A 43 yr old man with eczema complained of soft to hard swelling at the prepucial skin near the root of the penis. It was not smegma and he was afebrile.


Patient was treated with 2 days of homeopathic remedy gunpowder 30c BD and silicea 200c BD. 


On the third day, the lump burst and the fluid drained out; skin went back to normal, no ulceration or wound.


Note : Silicea is also called the surgeon’s knife — when you want to chop off an abscess but can’t, use silicea and it will burst and heal without scarring.
