Shroen declares Petroleum to be the best clap remedy, but administered crude in drop doses. Trinks also corroborates this statement.

In individuals who have frequently contracted gonorrhoea, and who have been treated with injections, in case of a repeated infection, the neck of the bladder is strongly affected, and if Petroleum meets such conditions it is suitable affected, and if Petroleum meets such conditions it is suitable in the most intractable cases. At times we meet with a fine, scarlet granular eruption on thee prepuce in cases of gonorrhoea, such as we find mentioned in the proving. With regard to the disintegration of the urine, Petroleum resembles Acid. Nitric.
Jahr finds Petroleum serviceable in several kinds of gleet; an observation which I can corroborate from experience. In such cases, however, I find it most effective in a higher potency (mostly the 30th).
