Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
An old man, aged 60, received a bruise upon the occiput from a fall;
the skin was lacerated and removed to the extent of half-a-crown. I
applied the lunar caustic soon after the accident.
On the next day an adherent eschar was formed. There was neither pain
nor swelling.--The eschar separated in a fortnight.
