Punctures Case Xi

Mrs. G. was bitten by a little dog on forefinger about a fortnight

ago. There is now a very irritable, inflamed, fungous sore. I removed

the fungous by a pair of scissors and applied the lunar caustic to

form an eschar.



On the succeeding day, I found that the patient had applied a little

lint before the eschar was dry, which had prevented it from remaining

adherent. I reapplied the caustic and desired that the eschar might be

exposed to dry.



The eschar remained adherent, the inflammation subsided and the case

gave no further trouble.
