Wine And Water If No Reaction Can Be Obtained

Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

Should the patient remain cold in his pack for longer than an hour,--a

case, which will seldom occur,--a little wine and water may be given him

to assist the organism in producing a reaction; and, in case of need,

the dose may be repeated once or twice in intervals of half an hour. The

quantity should be adapted to the age and constitution of the patient,

and by no means sufficient to affect the head. Instead of water, it may

also be mixed with warm broth or tea, or hot water and sugar, to make it

agreeable to the little patient.
