Of Fungous Ulcer Of The Navel In Infants
Category: OF SOME ANOMALOUS CASES.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
It sometimes occurs that a little fungous sore exists upon the navel
in infants which is difficult of cure in the ordinary way. I had one
case which had subsisted for two years, and another, which had
continued for two months, and were, during those periods, a source of
great trouble and uneasiness to the mothers of the little patients.
These ulcers are easily cured in the following manner.
The fungus is to be completely removed by a pair of scissors, and when
the bleeding has quite ceased, the lunar caustic is to be applied,
and the part defended by the gold-beater's skin and kept carefully
from any moisture.
In one of the cases mentioned above the eschar was accidentally
separated twice and required to be renewed; but both cases were cured
in the space of a few days.
