Bruises Case Xiv





Category: ON THE APPLICATION OF THESE MODES OF TREATMENT TO PARTICULAR CASES.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers

The first case of bruise which I shall detail was not severe, but will
serve to illustrate the mode of treatment by the adherent eschar.

Mr. Symons, aged 60, slipped off a chair and bruised the shin, last
evening; the skin was removed to the extent of an inch in one part and
a square inch in another. He applied a common poultice. During the
night he had much pain, and to-day there is much inflammation round
the wounds. I applied the lunar caustic over both wounds and covered
the eschar with gold-beater's skin to prevent the contact of the
stocking.

On the following day the eschar was found to be perfect. The pain had
entirely ceased. There was a little vesication round one of the
wounds. I simply evacuated the fluid of the vesication and left the
part exposed to dry.

On the third day there was no pain or inflammation, and the eschar
remained adherent.

From this time no remedy was required. The eschar separated leaving
the surface healed, in about a month from the occurrence of the
accident. The patient suffered no sort of inconvenience nor was he
confined from his labours a single day.
