Some Clinical Suggestions.
The following are a few facts proven thoroughly in my own experience; you may use them as you think best.
For a local application in erysipelas, I depend upon the tincture of veratrum.
As a general application in disease of the skin, I dissolve an ounce of sulphate of magnesium and a dram of carbolic acid in a pint of water, and apply this freely.
For the cure of lumbago, I use the sinusoidal current; it has proven curative in a very short time in all my cases.
In the treatment of menstrual colic, I have relieved the pain more quickly with the use of the violet light, even, than with morphine.
