I have at length outgrown in my experience of ringworm treatment the feeling which used to possess me in reading enthusiastic accounts of various drugs by their special advocates, that my previous treatment had lacked the one essential, or had been characterised by some special error. The question of shaving and washing instances this well. I had had all my cases shaved; and they were scrubbed each morning for some time,but on reading Mr. Malcolm Morris's denunciation of this, I began to wonder if the disease had thereby been extended, and I ceased to shave and wash with such ardour. Again, I was influenced by the high praise of chrysarobin by Unna and Morris, and instituted this treatment at the cost of staining much bed linen and ^zany garments, the sacrifice of which I reckoned as nothing, compared to the inestimable advantages which were to ensue from its use. Its results, however, did not come up to my expectations, though I do not deny its value. I found it a much less dangerous remedy than I had supposed. The children's fps were often stained a deep purplish colour but I can recall no regrettable incident except the damage to clothing i in connection with its use. If the ointment actually got inside the eye, Conjunctivitis was produced., but this very rarely happened/and was not serious.
