Treatment Of Other Eruptive Fevers

Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

The treatment as prescribed for scarlatina in this pamphlet, is

applicable also for other eruptive fevers, such as small-pox,

varioloids, chicken-pocks, measles, miliaria, urticaria, zoster,

rubeola, erysipelas, erythema, &c., its principal feature being the

wet-sheet pack, which may always be safely employed, even by an

inexperienced hand. It is not the object of this treatise to discuss all

these different diseases in full: I shall do so in a larger work on the

water-cure, which I intend to publish in English as soon as I find

leisure enough to finish it. But I shall give, in the meanwhile, a few

hints sufficient to guide the reader in their treatment.
