Small pox is generated by bacteria. It spreads from one patient to other. When the bacteria of this disease are entered in the body, small pox occurs. The bacteria of this disease are as small as it can not be seen even with the help of Microscope. Some people believed that it is transferred by air and flies from one place to other and when a person comes in its reach/contact, he/she is affected from this disease. Small pox never occurs again after occurring once. There are two types of small pox- mutual/confluent small pox and separate/discrete small pox.   

Mutual small pox:-

Small pox in which two or more grains (pimples) are combined to each other is called mutual small pox. When these grains are matured, pus is produced in it. If these grains appeared on the face, cheek, head and inside the nose, it can be terrible. After 11-12 days of entering the bacteria of small pox, fever comes that raised up to 103 to 106 degree. In the condition of fever, the patient feels cold, burning sensation, pain in the entire body and the symptom of vomiting. After 2-3 days, grains start appear and then fever begins to reduce. After 5-6 days, water begins to fill in these grains and then converted into pus. At this time, the temperature of the body again rose up to 106 degree and increased too much within 6 to 10 days. In this way, if fever rises, the patient can die too.        

Separate small pox:-

If the grains appear separately, they are called separate small pox. The symptoms of this small pox are similar to the symptoms of mutual small pox, but fever is not as high as in mutual small pox.


According to the doctors, vaccine of small pox should be taken.  In this disease, vaccine is injected on the arm to prevent small pox. Homoeopathic doctors vaccinate after giving Vaccininum, Variolinum or Salendrinum to the patient for taking. Both the way of vaccinate gives same result. There is no possibility of vaccinosis ((any harmful effects of vaccinate) by homoeopathic treatment.  Any one drug among Vaccininum 30, Variolinum 30 or Salendrinum 30 should be taken 2 times a day for 2 weeks. If fever or any other diseases have occurred after the use of this drug, we should understand that it is working well and if it is nothing so, that means drug is not doing its own work. According to some homoeopathic doctors, taking the powder of Vaccininum 6x acts as vaccine of small pox and there is no possibility of vaccinosis. If small pox has multiplied, taking Variolinum 30 once or twice a week provides relief in this disease. If a healthy person has the possibility of occurring small pox, he should take Variolinum 30.
