Treatment Of Acute And Subacute Inflammation And Ulceration Of The Esophagus

Bismuth subnitrate in doses of about one gramme, given
dry on the tongue and swallowed without water, has a local antiseptic
and protective action. Its antiseptic power may be enhanced by the
addition of calomel to the powder, in such amount as may be tolerated
by the bowels. If pain be present the combination of a grain or two of
anesthesin or orthoform with the bismuth will be grateful. The local
application of argyrol in 25 per cent watery solution is also of great
value. The mouth and teeth are to be kept clean with a mouth wash of
Dakin's solution, 1 part, to peppermint water, 6 parts. The esophagus
must be placed at rest as far as possible by liquid diet or, if need
be, by gastrostomy.
