Cantharis Fact Sheet


Spanish fly is the more common name of cantharis. It is actually a beetle that produces an irritant so caustic that it makes the skin blister if exposed to it.
Cantharis has been used for many different disorders such as baldness, rheumatism, and as an aphrodisiac. It can be toxic in high doses and can create abdominal cramps vomiting up blood, pains in the throat and stomach, diarrhoea, kidney damage, convulsions, coma, and death. Homoeopaths prescribe Cantharis for their patients who have symptoms like those above.
