Under the name of Petrolatum is sold a semi-solid substance
derived from certain kinds of petroleum called cosmoline or vaselin. It
has very soothing powers and does not become rancid and is used as a
soothing dressing in sores, boils, and skin affections. It is frequently
used as a base for ointments. Fluid or liquid petrolatum is much used now
in the form of a spray in the treatment of acute and chronic catarrh and
after irritant applications to the nasal cavities. It is put up now in
tubes and is much cleaner and purer. It is very soothing and healing when
used in this pure form.
