How Sycosis Develop? The development of Sycotic miasm may we discuss about its mode of infection, internal development, primary manifestations, latent stage, and its secondary manifestations.

The state of Sycotic miasm may enter and developed into the organism as sexually transmitted venereal disease by impure coition, when the acquire Gonorrhoea has not been treated homoeopathically; then the Sycoitic State may developed.

There may be other sources of Sycosis as from ‘Suppressed gonorrhoea’, from ‘Bed effect of vaccination’, from ‘Animals Poisoning or animal bite as snake or dog bite etc.’, from ‘Bed effect of Dissecting wounds’, from ‘Prolong suffering from acute miasm like Smallpox, Chickenpox, Typhoid etc.’, and any stage it may infect the wife from husband or vice-versa and the children through the parents by the way of in-heritance Sycosis.

As internal development, once an entry is gained into the organism the miasm spread; for several days 8 to 12 days from the date of contact, nothing is visible. Once they have developed fully in the organism, the local symptoms break-out as “Primary manifestations of Sycosis”.


This disease is infected through contaminated sexual intercourse. After few days up-to 8 to 12 days from the infection;

The fig-wart like growths with or without a greenish-yellow discharge from the urethra.

  • These growths never disappear spontaneously. If they are destroyed by surgical means, ointments, caustic substances or cauterization etc., the disease is directed inwards and remains dormant or latent for a considerable period.
  • Then under favourable circumstances, the symptoms of the secondary stage appear in due course of time.

This disease also like Syphilis infects the sexual partner in the same stage which the infecting agent belongs to.

  • As a result, manifestations of the secondary or latent stage may appear directly without any primary manifestation in some individuals.
  • Apart from the fig-wart like growth another prominent symptom of the disease is discharge of pus from the urethra, which is called Sycotic gonorrhoea.
  • Of course, there may be discharge from urethra even without Sycosis and this is called acute gonorrhea.
  • The chief differences are in Sycotic gonorrhoea there is not much pain or difficulty in urination.
  • Acute gonorrhea may spontaneously disappear in course of some time and no constitutional complications are created.
  • But, maltreatment may cause flaring up of latent Psora into the patent form resulting into manifestations of secondary Psora which can be cured by antipsoric alone.
  • On the other hand, Sycotic gonorrhoea can never be cured without appropriate antisycotic treatment.
  • Sycosis may complicate with Psora or Syphilis and to be treat accordingly.

The sycotic fig-wart may be dry or soft like sponge; in the latter case, offensive or even easy bleeding may be noticed.

  • In acquired sycosis, these fig-warts at first appear on glans penis or prepuce of the male genitalia or on the vulva of the female genitalia.
  • If forcibly removed, these may reappear in situ or on other parts of the body.
  • If again removed forcibly from these places, they will be directed inwards and secondary symptoms will subsequently appear.

Let us discuss the symptom-syndrome of Sycosis in its various stages to recognizing them.

Primary manifestations of Sycosis: 

  1. Gleet: Yellowish urethral discharge.
  2. Fig-wart: Spongy, dry, soft warts; first appears on glans penis in male and on vulva in female and then other parts of the body.

Such numerous disease syndromes or disease states denote the symptoms of secondary Syphilis. Except syphilis and Sycosis manifestations, all other chronic diseases are nothing but various manifestations of Psora. It’s enough to know that Psora may cause all sort of chronic diseases. We needs to recognise it know it and ability to perceive Psora and its various permutation & combination with Sycosis and Syphilis.
