Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Euphorbium compositum, therapeutical possibilities result with drops and injection solution for the treatment of acute and chronic sinusitis (maxillary, frontal, ethmoidal, sphenoidal), as well as of tubal catarrh (ear) and of dropsy of the middle ear. Nasal spray (dosing spray) for chronic dry nasal catarrh, dry nasal mucosa in chronic sinusitis; to facilitate nasal respiration in nervous and allergic coryza (hay fever); for acute nasal catarrh and catarrh caused by a chill (dissolves the secretions, ensures free nasal respiration and relieves frontal pressure); as auxiliary remedy for atrophic rhinitis (ozena).
The preparation, which is available as drops to be taken as well as in the form of injection solution, has shown excellent effects in an extensive series of tests, especially for chronic sinusitis, and particularly the dry form (atrophy of the nasal mucous membrane), bringing about reactivation and, in the form of regressive vicariation, restoring the lubrication of the mucosa. Occasionally it is beneficial, at the same time to administer also the preparation Mucosa compositum, after a fairly long use of caustics, after ointments which reduce mucus, etc., also the preparations which act effectively on the enzymes, Coenzyme compositum, Ubichinon compositum; for inflammatory symptoms also Echinacea compositum S (possibly forte i.v.) or Traumeel S and Engystol N.
For dropsy of the middle ear and for chronic otitis, all 3 forms of medicament should be administered simultaneously.
Euphorbium compositum-Ñasal Spray S stimulates the mucosal functions, their action being directed especially towards the nose and paranasal sinuses, having a regulatory effect on the widest variety of diseases of the mucosa of the sinuses, including acute and allergic coryza. Avoiding the otherwise usual deturgescence of the mucosa, and without reactive hyperaemia with the consequent constriction of the respiratory tract, the nasal mucous membrane alone is cleansed from crusts and secretions by the solvent (physiological salt solution). Irksome desiccation is avoided, free respiration ensured and the unpleasant frontal pressure dispelled. In addition, the administration of Euphorbium compositum-Nasal Spray S over a fairly long period does not bring about a decrease in their action, but on the contrary, this is increased with time.
