Highly Inflamed Throat Croup

Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

If the _throat_ is in a highly inflamed condition, repeated packing is

the surest means of allaying the inflammation and preventing _croup_.

Although I have had very bad cases under my hands, I never saw a case of

scarlet-croup under water-treatment. All you have to do is, to pack your

patient early enough and often enough to keep the inflammation down, to

keep a wet compress on his throat and chest, and, in general, treat him

as I have prescribed. The condition of the throat will improve in

proportion to your perseverance in packing.
