4.15 Inflammatory Blush

Inflammatory Blush. Erythema.

WHAT is called marginated inflammatory blush, is a mottled, red, smooth fullness of the skin, occurring on the extremities and loins, in irregular patches, bounded on one side by a hard, elevated, red border. This species of disease attacks old people, and indicates some internal disorder, which is dangerous.
Another form of the complaint appears on the arms, neck, and breast, in extensive, bright red, irregular patches, slightly elevated. The redness, at its height, is very vivid, and continues about a fortnight, when it assumes a purplish hue in the centre.

Treatment. Light diet, gentle purgatives (21), soda bath to alÂlay the tingling and secure sleep, and the mineral acids (63), with bitter tonics, comprise all that is required, except sponging with water, and friction.
