With our doctors the compound stillingia liniment has been used in croup for many years. It has won for itself an excellent reputation. I have made it a practice to put it into the hands of many of my families with instructions how to use it in case of an emergency.
Recently I have used the dark iodid of lime in those cases where there was a tendency to the formation of membrane, and have obtained very quick and satisfactory results.
At another time when I had neither of the above remedies with me I used the bichromate of potash and relieved the child very quickly.
