4.24 Papulous Scall

Papulous Scall. Eethyma.

THE mattery pimple called eethyma is developed on a highly in flamed skin. The bladders are about the size of a split pea, and are surrounded by a broad ring of redness. They are* generally separate, not clustered like impetigo. They are scattered over various parts of the body, and are followed either by a hard black crust, or by a sore. The disease is either acute or chronic. The latter attacks weakly children, and persons reduced by sickness or low living.

Treatment. For the acute form, give a generous diet, with ointment (176), and the cold sponge bath on the sound parts. Use(176) (175) (214) (211) for external application. Hygienic treatment, tonics, and stimulants are called for; iron, quinine, arsenic, and nux vomica.
