Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
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.
