A Sedative Lotion.

When at a loss for a lotion that is sedative, alkaline and refreshing, try the following:

Creta preparata ozs. 3
Glycothymoline ozs. 2
Campho-menthol 10 - 15 drops
Aquae, ad q. s. ozs. 8

It is applicable in any superficial inflammation without abrasion. It quickly relieves sunburn, and is of service in cases of pruritus ani and pruritus vulvae not of senile or of diabetic origin. Wet absorbent cotton or pieces of linen with the solution and keep them in contact with the affected parts until relieved.
