| One of the twelve tissue salts introduced by Schuessler, Ferrum phos. is one of the best remedies for nosebleeds. with bright red blood. It is especially useful for those tired, anemic looking children or adolescents who typically faint from the sight of blood.
Ferrum phos. is also useful for the very first stage of colds, ear infections, sore throats, tracheitis and lung problems, where there are no symptoms except a fever (what we call a "low grade fever of unknown origin" ). It is often used as a convalescent remedy for children who remain tired and sickly looking after viral infection.
