These will be found treated under the various heads of Colds,
Bronchitis, Consumption, etc., but some particular cases of mere
cough demand special attention. A tickling cough sometimes comes on,
and seems to remain in spite of all efforts to get rid of it. It is
worse at night, and keeps the sufferer from sleeping, causing much
distress. Where the breathing organs are weak, this cough is caused by
an extra flow of blood to them, especially on lying down, the blood
acting as an irritant by pressing where it should not. In such cases a
BRAN POULTICE (see) applied as directed for Bronchitis, with cooling
applications to the part where the tickling is felt, should soon effect
a cure. See Restlessness.
We had a case lately in which these features were very marked. It
seemed as if the patient had caught cold and this was showing itself in
severe and alarming coughing. The skin was yellow, and there were other
signs of failure in the organs that purify the blood. Irritating
substances were passing into the lungs because of failure in the liver
and kidneys, and not from anything in the lungs themselves. In such
cases the cough is merely a way of throwing off everything which ought
not to be in the breathing organs.
The remedy is very simple. Let the patient take about three
tablespoonfuls of hot water every ten minutes for four hours. Before
these four hours are expired, the substances causing irritation will be
so diluted that they will cease to irritate, and the organs failing to
do their duty will be in full working order.
