Sometimes a severe out-break and eruption will
occur in and around the nostrils or lips, and spread over the face. (If
of the nature of erysipelas, treat as under that head.) In ordinary
cases, there is need for more than local treatment, as it is probable
that more or less failure in the skin exists. Also the feet will be
most probably cold and damp. Let these be bathed (see Bathing Feet),
and dried. Then rub them with CAYENNE LOTION (see) for some ten
minutes, until in a glow of heat. Dry well, rub on hot olive oil, and
dry again. Do this twice a day for a week. Warm and dry stockings must
be worn. The skin of the back will probably be found dry and rough.
Wash it down daily with SOAP (see) and hot water, and rub with warm
olive oil. After a week of this treatment, probably the eruption will
be much lessened. If it is still troublesome, apply cool cloths to the
whole head, avoiding the sore parts, until it is generally cooled down
and the skin softened, or the head may be, instead of this, packed in
lather of the soap already mentioned. (See Head, Soaping). For the
sore itself, apply weak vinegar or very weak ACETIC ACID (see), and
a little olive oil after. But it is best if it can be healed in such
cases without any local application, through the general treatment of
feet and skin.
