2 Character:

A – Angry child :

Antim Crud. is a medicine suits for extremes of life (Verat. Alb. ) – affecting child and aged. Hence Antim Crud. child  bears a peculiar mentality.

It can be compared with the race of swine for the virtue of the fact that it inclines to grow fat and moreover  its typical obstinacy.

  • fretful,
  • peevish,
