Generally the tongue will tell whether the stomach
is ulcerated or not. If the tongue is fiery-looking, and small ulcers
show themselves on it, while food produces pain in the stomach, there
is little doubt of the presence of ulcers there. The tongue may at
once, in such a case, be brushed with weak acid (see Acetic Acid) or
vinegar, so as to cleanse the surface and produce a gentle smarting.
This brushing will quickly produce a healing change in the tongue,
which guides us to the cure of the stomach. This will be attained by
swallowing teaspoonfuls of the same weak acid. Two or three of these
should be taken at intervals half-an-hour before food. If the case is
severe, the skin over the stomach must be carefully soaped, as directed
in article on HEAD SOAPING (see also Lather; Soap). The four-ply
flannel BANDAGE (see) should also be worn. Do not use drugs, such as
iron, arsenic, or soda, and avoid all narcotics. Persevere with the
weak acid, and a cure will come unless in very obstinate cases indeed.
Care must be taken to avoid irritating food. Milk, or milk and boiling
water is the best diet. A general symptom is severe pain after eating,
relieved by vomiting.
No fluid should be taken hotter than the finger can be held in it. This
is indeed a good rule always in matters of food and drink, which are
often taken too hot, to the injury of the stomach.
