Necessity Of Allaying The Heat

Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

The packs and baths should be continued, even when the patient cannot be

prevailed upon to stay long enough in the packs to perspire. The heat of

the skin and the general inflammatory condition of the whole organism

_must_ be allayed, especially, when there is much _delirium_. In that

case, the patient ought to be kept long enough in the bath to clear off

the head, and care ought to be taken, that he should never stay in the

pack to become much excited.
