Punctures Case V
Category: ON THE APPLICATION OF THESE MODES OF TREATMENT TO PARTICULAR CASES.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
Mr. Cocking's son, aged 12, received a stab in the palm of the hand
from a penknife three days ago, which has been followed by much
swelling and pain, the punctured orifice being nearly closed. I
applied the lunar caustic as deep as possible within the puncture and
directed a cold poultice to be laid over the whole hand.
On the next day I found that the poultice had not been applied; there
were more pain and swelling; an eschar was formed over the puncture
which I removed and thus gave issue to a considerable quantity of
pus; I again enjoined the application of a cold poultice kept
constantly moist and cold with water.
On the succeeding day, the inflammation had greatly subsided. I
repeated the application of the caustic and poultice. On the fourth
day the inflammation had nearly disappeared and on the fifth entirely.
In such cases the caustic unites the advantages of at once opening the
puncture and of subduing the inflammation, thus preventing the
formation of deep-seated abscesses.
