Chafing and Excoriation.
WHEN the neck, arm pits, thighs, etc., of children, get chafed or excoriated, a remedy may be found by keeping the parts clean, and by dusting them with powdered slippery elm, starch or talcum powder. If this does not effect a cure, apply Turner's cerate, or wash the parts with a solution of sulphate of zinc, or nitrate of silver, five grains to the ounce of soft water.
Grown persons may treat these troubles very much in the same way, or by wearing cotton between the parts which rub together
