Turpentine in Typhoid
In the treatment of typhoid fever, don't forget when the indications for turpentine are present that this remedy will sometimes do wonders. In these cases when there is a sudden rise in the temperature that is not readily subdued by bathing, all indications being right, I make it a practice to give castor oil freely, following which there is often a speedy and satisfactory decline in the temperature.
