Old Ulcers

Take the A D current. If torpid, treat with mild force. Treat the sore

with N. P., while P. P. is held upon some healthy part, and usually at a

higher point. Treat five to ten minutes, three or four times a week. If

high inflammation be present, this must first be reduced by applying

P. P., in pretty strong force, with N. P., on a healthy part not far

away. For this purpose, treat some five to eight minutes daily. Then,

when the inflammation is sufficiently subdued, treat as when torpid,

with mild force and less frequently. It is best, when it can be done, to

place the affected part in warm water along with N. P.; bringing the

ulcer immediately above the surface of the water.
