Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
James Joynes, aged 12, was bitten by an ass, on each side of the
middle finger; the wounds were severe, and almost immediately
followed by swelling and great pain. The lunar caustic was well
applied within half an hour after the accident.
On the succeeding day, the eschar was found to be quite adherent, and
the pain and swelling had subsided.
The eschar separated in about twelve days and the wounds were healed.
