Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
A little girl, aged 10, scalded her breast a week ago and has treated
it with the ordinary remedies. There remained a superficial
ulceration of the size of half-a-crown. I applied the lunar caustic
lightly over the surface of the sore, and then the gold-beater's skin.
On the following day, an adherent eschar had formed, and in five days
more it dropped off leaving the ulcer quite healed.
