4.22 Mattery Pimples

Mattery Pimples.

ANOTHER. natural group of skin diseases axe distinguished by an eruption of pimples, filled, not with water, like those just described, but with matter. The pimples of this class are not transparent, or whitish, but opaque and yellow from the first. The matter is poured out upon the true skin, and raises up the scarf skin, in the same way as the watery pimples. As in the preceding diseases, too, the drying up of the matter forms crusts. But these pimples are never so small as those of eczema, nor so large as those of pemphigus.
