Nervous pains in phantom limbs after amputation, and toothaches or discomfort after dental treatment, may also be helped by the remedy.

Hypericum acts on the spinal nerves , and is given for severe back pain that travels up or down the spine.

Other ailments for which the remedy is used include: asthma that is worse in foggy weather; toothache with pulling or tearing pain.
