I have for years been subject to chronic rhinitis. This year, with the approach of winter, the symptoms were aggravated to an almost unbearable degree.
I had prepared, one ounce of echinacea, two drams of thuja, and sufficient syrup of stillingia compound to make six ounces. Of this I took a teaspoonful three times a day and irrigated the nasal passages thoroughly with a douche composed of one part of glycothymoline and four parts of warm water. This was followed with a spray with an alboline base.
The prescription above mentioned has frequently appeared in this journal as a treatment for chronic catarrh, and my use of it has been experimental, but the results, of the douche with the internal medicine have been highly satisfactory.
