The Western Journal of Medicine and Surgery, 1845, Vol. 3 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Western Journal of Medicine and Surgery, 1845, Vol. 3 These remarks are not intended to depreciate the value of free internal medication. Indeed, in most of the cases in which I have used the poultice it has been in conjunction, or at least, not to the exclusion of any other remedy which might have been thought avaﬂable - so that one who may be disposed to cavil, might with some plausibility, dispute its agency in producmg the beneficial results which I have aseri bed to it. Nevertheless, in a great majority of the cases in which I have resorted to it, in the diseases alluded to, its ef feet has been so apparent that notwithstanding the adminis tration of other remedies, at the same time, no one could mistake its promptly favorable inﬂuence. And it frequently happens that our only means of making an impression upon the disease is through the agency of external applications. As, in cerebral congestions attended with coma and insensibili ty, it is always difficult, and sometimes even impossible, to ad minister medicines internally - in such cases the mustard poultice is entitled to the very first and highest consideration, as the remedy most likely to produce the desired objects.
