In the treatment of conjunctivitis, I have found that ichthyol in a from one-half to one per cent solution with or without boric acid gives quicker results than anything else I have used. I instill a few drops into the eye every three or four hours. If the congestion is very severe, I first use a few instillations of adrenalin chloride, in the one, two or three thousandth solution. This treatment will give quick relief, and will hasten a cure.
