About the Author

Dr J. Henry Allen (1854-1925) was the President of the International Hahnemannian Association in 1900 and was Professor of Skin and Venereal Diseases at the Hering Medical College in Chicago. He is the author of two books – "The Chronic Miasms" and, "Diseases and Homoeopathy Therapeutics of the Skin". Both are regarded as classics of Homeopathic literature.


In the preparation of this little work we have endeavoured to present this very difficult subject in as clear and as concise a manner as possible, leaving out all un- necessary detail that might in any way confuse or burden the mind of the busy practitioner or student of dermatology. It is our wish to make it one of practical use to the busy practitioner as well as a text-book for the student who wishes to receive a practical knowledge of this subject, avoiding as much as possible the unnecessary task of reading voluminous works written by noted specialists upon the subject. The history, pathology and pathological anatomy has been dealt with briefly, partially owing to the present uncertain knowledge on these subjects, and partially to the differences of opinion held by the homoeopathic physician and our colleague of the regular school. We also have endeavored to make the therapeutic part as strong as possible, limited as we are by lack of space in a work of this size, hoping later on to materially strengthen it by a repertory wholly confined to the subject. The homoeopathic of diseases of the skin have by no means been forgotten, as we feel that Homeopathy can be as fully and as ably demonstrated through the law of similia, by the homeopathic physician in the dermatological field, as has been in the past in any other department of medicine. We feel greatly indebted to the many strong and able writers upon this subject, such as Drs. Morrow, Fox, Shoemaker, Hyde and others, whose valuable assistance has aided much in the production of the work.
