For acute congestions,

Ferrum Phos. is given in the initial stage of
all congestions, inflammations and fevers. This salt possesses
an affinity or attraction for oxygen and carries it to all
parts of the body and hence is an important agent in all
diseases in which the blood and the corpuscles are involved.
Consequently, the first remedy in all cases depending upon the
relaxed condition of the muscular tissue and in abnormal
conditions of the corpuscles of the blood themselves. It gives
strength to the circular wall of the blood vessels. It
supplies the colour to the blood corpuscles. A deficiency of
this cell salt is the cause of fevers and inflammatory
conditions and so indicated in all febrile disturbances and in
inflammatory and congestive diseases at the beginning,
especially before exudation has commenced. The principal
accompaniments of these conditions calling for Ferrum Phos are
manifested by flushed face, fever with full pulse, hot, dry
skin, thirst, pain and redness of the part. An excellent
remedy in anaemia, chlorosis, pneumonia, inflammatory
rheumatism, tonsillitis, diphtheria, cystitis, nosebleed,
incontinence of urine, apoplexy, gastritis etc. The symptoms
calling for this remedy are always aggravated by motion and
ameliorated by cold.
