Rhus toxicodendron is a well-known remedy for its healing effects on arthritis, however it is useful for many conditions marked by stiffness and restlessness.
This remedy can also be indicated for:
- back pain that worsens after long periods of sitting (i.e. watching a movie or long car rides)
- neck pain and stiffness that feels better from moving around and from applications of heat
- arthritis that feels worst on rising in the morning but better after a hot shower
- itching skin eruptions that feel better when run under hot water and that cause restlessness
