When a limb becomes swelled and white, pouring hot water
very gently over it with a sponge or cloth will have a blessed effect.
It may be continued for an hour at a time for several times. If this
ceases to be comforting, it should be discontinued and the limb dressed
with warm olive oil, a soft cotton rag being put next the skin, and
soft flannel above that. Of course absolute rest should be taken.
