An excellent guide to the proper treatment of any
case is to be found in the distribution of heat in the patient's body.
Hot parts are to be cooled, and cold parts warmed, often both at the
same time, so as to restore the proper balance of vital action. Gentle
progressive measures are always best in this, especially with
children. Cold feet are warmed by BATHING (see) and FOMENTATION
(see). A heated head may be cooled with COLD TOWELS (see) or with
soap LATHER (see). This principle of seeking a proper balance should
be borne in mind throughout all our treatment. Its importance can
hardly be exaggerated, as the restoration of this balance alone will
frequently effect an almost magical cure where drugs have been wholly
ineffective.
