Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
Mr. Worth's daughter, aged six, was thrown down by a dog and bitten
severely on the face and forehead in three places; one of the wounds
in the cheek was deep from the penetration of the dog's front teeth,
and the parts were much bruised. The lunar caustic was well applied in
half an hour after the accident to each of the wounds, and the eschar
was covered with gold-beater's skin.
On the next day the eschars were adherent. There was some swelling
from the severity of the bruise; but the child made little complaint.
On the third day, the swelling remained as before and the eschar
adherent. On the fourth, the swelling had nearly disappeared.--The
eschar separated in nine days from the infliction of the wound,
leaving the parts healed and free from scar.
