Punctures Case Vi





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

A little boy, aged 12, received a stab by a penknife a few days ago,
in the fore part of the thigh; there are now great pain and swelling,
the orifice is nearly closed, and he has feverishness with headach. I
applied the lunar caustic deeply in the wound, and directed a poultice
and a cold lotion to be kept upon the inflamed parts; and suspecting
fascial inflammation, I took away ten ounces of blood and administered
purgative medicine.

On the next day, the inflammation had greatly subsided; the cataplasm
and lotion were continued.

On the third day, there was some inflammation round the puncture which
appeared to be closing; I repeated the application of the caustic
within the orifice of the wound.

On the fourth day the swelling was subsiding and there was no pain.
The poultice and lotion were continued.--From this time there was no
occasion for any remedy, and the little patient speedily recovered.
