Frictions With Lard

Source: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

were used already by Caelius Aurelianus, and recently re-introduced
into practice, by Drs. Daene and Schneemann, in Germany, and by Dr.
Lindsley, in America. Even hydriatic physicians have tried them
with some success. However, notwithstanding the strong recommendations
of the remedy on the part of the above named practitioners and others,
the efficacity of it as a general remedy for scarlet-fever has not been
confirmed. On the contrary, Berend and Hauner found that it did
not prevent desquamation, as it had been asserted, and even Richter
restricts his commendations to the vague assertion "that it seemed to
him as if the cases when he used the lard were made milder than they
would have been without it."
