Ulcers Case Xxvii





Category: ON THE APPLICATION OF THESE MODES OF TREATMENT TO PARTICULAR CASES.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers

Mrs. Wakefield, aged 36, had an extensive ulceration with excoriation
on the upper part of the right breast, of two months continuance; it
had been greatly aggravated by improper treatment. I applied the lunar
caustic over the whole ulcerated and excoriated surface. It gave much
pain.

On the following day I was concerned to find that part of the eschar
had been separated by the patient's dress. I repeated the application
of the caustic and again directed the part to be exposed and carefully
protected from being disturbed. The breast required to be supported
being full of milk.

On the succeeding day an adherent eschar existed over all the
ulcerated parts, and the pain, redness, and irritation had nearly
subsided.

On the fourth day there was still less pain and inflammation. On the
eight the eschars had separated and the breast was quite well.
