20.21 Leg

The Leg Bath. This is useful in cases of ulcers, swellings, eruptions, gout, rheumatism, sprains, wounds, etc., of the leg or thigh. The relief and strength obtained, often by a single application of this remedy, is truly wonderful. A variety of apparatus may be contrived for administering the leg bath. A common wooden tub, contrived for the purpose, like that represented in Fig. 192, answers a good purpose. In such a vessel, he covers the inflamed limb introduced, and cools the blood flowing to it.
