This is best treated by a good large BRAN POULTICE
(see) on the back of the head and neck. While the patient lies on
this, cold towels must be changed on the front above the "apple" of the
throat. Do this for an hour twice a day. Or, if the feet be cold, give
treatment as in Teething. There must also be rest from talking.
Procure a good camel's-hair throat-brush from the druggist, and brush
the back of the throat well with weak ACETIC ACID (see) several times
a day, or simply gargle if there is difficulty with the brushing. The
brush must be carefully cleansed, and dipped in the strong acid after
Especially is it necessary to give up, in such cases, the use of
tobacco. Where the trouble has lasted for years, it may be slow to
heal, and the poulticing may be done only once a week. In ordinary
cases, a day or two's treatment should cure.
Many times we have seen a good fomentation of feet and legs alone give
very sensible relief. Never be satisfied with putting a hot bottle or
brick to the feet. This is a lazy way of dealing with a serious case.
Have the feet and legs up to the knees rubbed with vinegar and olive
oil, and wrapped in a large blanket fomentation. It is not the mere dry
skin of the soles of the feet that needs warming: the whole legs,
especially the muscles, require the moist heat of a thorough
fomentation. Circulation is at once accelerated just where it is
wanted, so as to lessen the pressure where the vital stream is pressing
too heavily and lodging in a dangerous congestion. It is good even if
the feet are not very cold, but only cool, to ply this part of the
remedy well. Where the patient is strong enough to sit out of bed, a
good hot foot-bath will do instead of this fomentation.
