Scrofula


Sources: Papers On Health

The treatment under Glands, Swollen, should be followed. But

besides, the whole membranous system of the glands must be stimulated.

Daily rubbing briskly over the whole body with the cold-drawn oil of

mustard for a quarter-of-an-hour will have this effect, and even by

itself may cure.



Good, easily digested food must be taken (see Abscess; Assimilation;

Diet; Nourishment), and overwork avoided. Continued work, as with a

child at school, may quite prevent a cure, while if the work ceases,

the cure will be rapid. It is better to have health and holidays than

sickness and school. Where there is a family tendency to scrofula, care

should be taken to treat promptly any case of glandular swelling.
