Category: OF SOME CASES IN WHICH THE CAUSTIC IS INAPPLICABLE.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers

The application of the lunar caustic in recent burns or scalds, has
always appeared to me to increase the inflammation and vesication,
even inducing blisters where there were none before. The caustic must
not, therefore, be applied in these cases, until the inflammation has
entirely subsided; but when there remains only a small superficial
ulceration, the caustic may be passed lightly over the ulcerated
surface to form an eschar which is to be defended by the gold-beater's
skin; for the affection is then reduced to the state of a common
superficial ulcer. An adherent eschar is generally readily formed, and
no further application is required. If the ulceration be more
extensive and deeper, the lunar caustic may be applied, and the eschar
treated, exactly as in common ulcers.

It may be well to illustrate these points, by the following cases.
