It is also prescribed for malignant or septic wounds, particularly if these are linked to compound fractures.

Urine is typically black or green in color, and is accompanied by putrid, strong-smelling discharges, notably from the anus.
The remedy may additionally be used to treat vomiting due to sea sickness, pregnancy, or cancer. The vomiting is accompanied by a constant thirst for water, a tendency to belch, and abdominal pain. Offensive-smelling diarrhea, dysentery, or cholera may also be treated, as may constipation with foul breath.
