Breath And The Skin
Source: Papers On Health
The organs of breathing remove much waste from
the system, but the skin also removes a very large part. If either
fails, the other has more work thrown upon it, as we see in the severe
"night sweats" which accompany chest and lung failure. In such cases,
rub with CAYENNE LOTION (see and Night Sweats). Avoid the use of hard
water in washing and bathing, especially with infants.
Cold baths for the weakly, chills, damp beds, and such things, cause
rheumatism and colds by stopping the proper discharge of waste by the
skin. After such chill, or cold in damp bed, a hot wash and good hot
oil rubbing will avert all evil. This may not always be available; but,
if it can be got at all, should be given as soon as possible. The use
of the soapy blanket is of the utmost value in severe cases (see
Soapy Blanket). Strict cleanliness of person and underwear should be
observed. The AIR BATH (see) will also give tone to the skin (see
Skin and Underwear).
