Belladonna acts on the brain, nerve centers, glandular, and lymphatic systems. Symptoms, whether in the abdomen, head, or elsewhere, come on suddenly and will include heat and throbbing. High fever with red cheeks and great sensitivity to movement, noise, temperature, and light is also part of a Belladonna picture. The fever will be dry with skin that is hot but very dry to the touch (no moisture or sweating and, though the mouth is dry there will be no thirst). Illnesses that will respond to Belladonna are almost always accompanied by a violent headache. If other symptoms indicate it, Belladonna should be considered whenever there is twitching and trembling of any kind. Symptoms are made worse by light, motion, noise, and touch.
