We should make the distinction clear between gonorrhea and Sycosis.
Gonorrhea is the acute infection of the gonococci, which takes from five to ten days to develop a urethritis after an exposure.
Sycosis is established after a suppressed gonorrhea, when the acute infection is driven in upon the vital energy by external methods of suppression, and it then becomes a systematic stigma
The Sycotic patient is exceedingly suspicious. The suspicion extends to the point where he dare not trust himself and he must go back and repeat what he has done or said, and wonders if he goes back and starts again.
He is suspicious that he will be misunderstood, that his hearers will give the wrong meaning to what he is attempting to convey.
The Sycotic patient is cross and irritable; he is absent minded in certain things, and finds difficulty in getting the right word
He forgets recent happenings, but remembers distant events very clearly.
Sycosis, coupled with Psora, is the basis of most criminal insanity and of most suicides
There is much amelioration by eliminative processes natural eliminations, such as diarrhea, free urination, or even perspiration, does not ameliorate.
The headache in the vertex is Sycotic in its origin; or there may be frontal headache. These are < lying down and at night, especially < after midnight.
This patient is restless and wants to be kept in motion, which >.
There is the same type of vertigo at the base of the brain.
The hair falls out in circular spots; the hair of the beard falls. The Sycotic scalp perspires, but there are not the moist, matting eruptions of syphilis.
Arthritic troubles of the eye are a combination of Sycosis and Psora; there are also neuralgias which are < on change of weather, < change of barometer, < rainy weather.
The Sycotic usually has a red nose with prominent capillaries. The sense of smell is lost.
Children with "snuffles" are usually syphilitic or Sycotic; the Sycotic stigma has moist snuffles, but without ulcerations or crusts; the discharge is purulent, scanty, with the odor of fishbrine.
The Sycotic discharges, like the tubercular, are greenish or greenish-yellow.
There is often nasal stoppage due to thickening of the membranes and to enlargement of the turbinated bones.
Except in acute colds the discharges are scanty. The slightest amount of discharge, however > the patient. Except in acute colds the discharges are scanty. The slightest amount of discharge, however > the patient.
Hay fever conditions, which are exceedingly difficult of cure under ordinary treatment, are more easily understood when we remember that they are an expression of syphilis and latent Sycosis, very often with a Psoric taint.
The Sycotic patient is especially liable to rheumatic troubles
In the combination of sycosis and psora we get the right soil for valvular and cardiac disturbances with changes in the organic structure; these are the conditions that cause the fatalities.
The syphilitic and sycotic heart conditions are much more dangerous than the psoric, but the psoric patient worries about his condition, takes his pulse frequently, fears death and remains quiet, while the syphilitic and sycotic patients have no mental distress, and may have no subjective heart symptoms; but they die suddenly and without warning.
The anasarcas never become very extensive, because these patients die before the anasarca has time to manifest itself to any degree; they snuff out like a candle.
Meats arouse the latent sycosis as in psora. The sycotic patient should take meat sparingly, and it is better for him to use more freely of nuts, beans or cheese. Gouty conditions cannot digest meats.
He is usually < by eating any food, and > by lying on the stomach or by pressure.
His pains are always colicky in nature, especially in the abdomen, and they are > by bending double and by hard pressure.
There are occasional diarrhœas, but always preceded and accompanied by the colic, griping and tenesmus. The stools are gushing and ejaculated forcibly.

The diabetic patient is usually strongly tubercular, but if there is a sycotic taint as well, the condition becomes much more malignant.
Bright's disease is a manifestation of all three stigmata combined. Where we find fibrous changes we may be sure there is a strong sycotic influence.
In the rectum we find many conditions of tubercular origin, as strictures, fistulæ, sinuses and pockets, but when there is the addition of the sycotic stigma the conditions are greatly aggravated, and there is much more tendency toward malignancy, for combinations of he tubercular diathesis with sycosis produce cancerous affections.
In acquired sycotic conditions represented by prostatic gland troubles there is a combination of all three stigmata.
Pelvic inflammations such as inflammation of the ovaries, inflammatory diseases of the female pelvis may be traced to this taint.
Appendicitis is directly traceable to sycotic influences.
There are tearing pains in the joints, which are < during rest, < during cold damp weather, > moving or stretching, > dry weather.
The sycotic skin manifestations tend toward overgrowth or extra deposits. The nails are ribbed or ridged and thick and heavy. Moles, warts, wine-coloured patches and other manifestations of unnaturally thickened skin belong in this classification.
Psoriasis is a combination of the three stigmata, with sycosis and psora predominating
Barber's itch readily develops in sycotic patients, while it rarely develops unless there is a sycotic taint.
Thus, while the psoric patient is unable to assimilate sufficient elements from sunlight, air, water, food, etc., the sycotic patient absorbs and assimilates to the point of overgrowth of tissues.
In Antisycotic remedies the carbons are almost entirely lacking, while the Calcareas appear infrequently.
Chemical combinations of the very lowest elements are found to be fairly frequent, as in Fluoric Acid, Nitric Acid, Ammonium Mur.
When suppressed, the syphilitic stigma spends itself on the meninges of the brain, and affects the larynx and throat in general, the eyes, the bones and the periosteum.
Psora spends its action very largely upon the nervous system and the nerve centers, producing functional disturbances, which are > by surface manifestations.
Sycosis attacks the internal organs, especially the pelvic and sexual organs. In this stigma we find the worst forms of inflammation, infiltration of the tissues causing abscesses, hypertrophies, cystic degeneration; when thrown back into the system by suppression this stigma causes dishonesty, moral degeneracy and mania.
