I have treated my last ten cases of erysipelas by the following method: I made two applications of Churchill's tincture of iodine locally, and have given internally one-half dram doses of specific echinacea every three hours. Later I have used any simple bland ointment.

As a local application in the treatment of erysipelas I have found the sweet spirits of nitre to be very reliable in the larger number of cases.
