Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
A young man, aged 18, came to me with a painful swelling of the
middle finger of the right hand; suspecting deep-seated abscess, I
made a free incision and evacuated a little pus. I then applied the
lunar caustic within the cavity and directed a cold poultice to be
applied with lotion.
On the fourth day my patient had returned to his occupation as a dyer.
