Mouth, or Oral Bath.
For inflammation of the gums, mouth, throat, and palate, in slimy
secretions from the throat and stomach, in toothache, catarrh, colds, and chronic hoarseness, garglings and baths for the mouth are of great service. Pauley, a merchant of Vienna, has been thought singular for his zeal in recommending this bath. Clergymen and others who suffer hoarseness by much speaking will find that holding very cold water in t he mouth until it begins to grow warm, and then ejecting it, and by frequently repeating the process, much benefit will be obtained. Coughs and tightness of the chest may often be essentially relieved by this bath. In mucous secretions from the throat and stomach, by ejecting the water a number of times, it will surprise those who have not witnessed the remedy to see the amount of slimy secretion thrown off.
