Editor Medical Brief: --I was called on August 3, 1882, to see M. B., aged four years; found the little boy with all the symptoms of severe congestive fever. We could not arouse the little fellow fully for three days, there being a positive indication for aconite and belladonna. I commenced, at once, their use in minute doses, and also applied mustard on the extremities, and on the temples, which was kept on for about six hours, when the plaster was taken off, and was not applied any more. The first three days it seemed as if my little patient would die, but I kept giving the aconite and belladonna, and, of course, gave cathartics and baths, etc.; but on the fourth day found my patient much better; he had succeeded in getting what we call hulls out of the cavities of the nose, and was astonished to find the skin on the temples red, and, on examination, found several blisters arising where the mustard had been applied on the temples. My patient, at this date, is getting along fine. Has any of the older brethren witnessed such a case? What was the reason the mustard did not blister or redden the skin before the fourth day. A. A. C. Williams, M. D. Prattsville, Ark. For the Brief.l Requ est--Dysmenor rhcea. Editor Medical Brief: --If Dr. Birkhead is still on earth, will he please give us a deal on scarlet fever.
