Chapter 14: Cancer of the Head, Face, Nose and Other Forms of External Cancer


This disease sometimes appears upon the top of the head. I had a child about three years old brought to me from New York State. The mother told me that she noticed that the child's eye seemed to grow larger and gradually become more prominent. In time the eye was pushed out to one side and when I saw the case there was a cancerous tumor about as large as my two fists. It had a spongy feeling and was full of broken down cancer cells. Another case was brought to me for treatment from New Jersey. A child fourteen months old, had a swelling come on the top of its head. It was cut out and returned worse than before. When I saw the patient the tumor covered the whole top of the head like a cap from the forehead to the back of the head and was about two and one-half inches high. The above two cases were past cure The last one was operated on again and the child died. To operate on such a case shows the grossest ignorance of cancer and operating cannot hold out any hope of prolonging life; it actually hastens the death of the patient.

In February, 1886, a gentleman from New Jersey came under my care for a cancer on the top of his head. It was about two and one-half inches in its longest diameter and had ulcerated. It was caused by a horse biting him on the head and began about five years previously. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" teaspoonful after each meal, sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime. Locally I applied Paste No. 2 for twenty-four hours; then removed it and applied another for the same period. It was then poulticed once in two hours with the "Pou1tice Powder" until it came out on the poultice. The sore was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve" applied on soft cloth three times a day. This man lived for fifteen years after this and died of consumption but never showed any symptoms of a return of the cancer during this time;

SYMPTOMS OF SKIN CANCER UPON THE FACE AND NOSE

The disease may make its appearance in the form of a wart, scab, pimple or open sore that will not heal The pimple is usually discolored; looks like a slight elevation with red, angry-looking blood vessels extending out in diferent directions. It may be a sore with pus oozing out of it that dries on the: outside forming a scab or scabs. The ulcerations may continue until there is a foul smelling discharge. It is not difficult to diagnose this condition, yet I have been surprised many times to see intelligent, educated physicians, men of long years of experience trying to heal a sore of this kind. Any doctor with any experience with cancer knows very well that it is just as impossible to heal up a cancer sore as it would be to heal a volcano. Such men show a woeful ignorance of the first principles of treating cancer. How often I have had patients tell me that their physician had said, "Oh, it's nothing! let it alone, it will never amount to anything." This is said to prevent the patient from going to a doctor who understands cancer and can cure such cases. In other cases they fool with it trying to heal it, try X-Ray, experiment with it until frequently it is past cure. Why will physicians fool with something they do not understand? That is malpractice of the worst kind; it is trifling with human life -- the most precious thing on earth. They will often tell the patient "it may be that or it may be this; it looks suspicious." Why quibble about a thing? It is either a cancer or it is not. If a doctor cannot give a clear diagnosis of a case he has no earthly right to try to treat it, but he should be manly and honest and say he does not know what it is and send his patient to a physician who can diagnose the case and treat it successfully. Your patients will have more confidence in you and more respect for you for being honest with them. It never pays to lie to patients for sooner or later they will find out the truth from some doctor, and you will only have made yourself ridiculous in the sight of your patient any have lost their confidence in your ability as a physician.

In 1876 I removed a cancer from the nose of a man in Vermont. Locally I used a paste made from the following formula.

Solid Ext. Sanguinaria,
Solid Ext. Phytolacca root,
Solid Ext. Red Clover, a. a. 3i.
Mix. Sig. Apply once in twenty-four hours spread on soft white cloth.

The paste was kept on the growth until it was all killed. Then I removed it and used the "Poultice Powder" once in two hours until it all came off on the poultice. The sore was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve." This man lived for twenty-five years after this and never showed any symptoms of a return of the disease. Internally I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca," teaspoonful after each meal

In 1885 a man was sent to me by a doctor to be treated for cancer. This man had been treated for cancer on the back of his neck. Electricity had been used only to make it worse. The cancer was of twenty years' growth and quite a large lump. It was movable and had commenced to ulcerate. He was a man 68 years old and in fairly good health. I gave him sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime, also the "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" one teaspoonful after each meal. Locally I applied Paste No. 1 and removed the application every twenty-four hours until it had been on three days. I then used the "Poultice Powder" applying a poultice every two hours until the mass came off on the poultice. The sore was healed with the "Yellow Hea1ing Salve." I am not aware that the disease ever returned.

In 1884 I treated a lady from New Jersey for a cancer on her wrist. She was about 80 years old. This cancer had been burnt out with arsenic plaster and had returned larger than before. Locally I used Paste No. 1 for forty-eight hours and then poulticed it once in two hours with the poultice powder until it came out. I healed it with the "Yellow Healing Salve." This lady lived for fifteen years after this but never had any return of the cancer.

In 1886 I treated a man from Ocean County, New Jersey, for a cancer on the nose. In treating a case of cancer on the nose the physician must be careful that the paste does not go too deep and expose too much of the bone. If it does there will have to be some skin grafting done for nature can only cover a small surface of exposed bone. In this case the cancer was small and ulcerated so I applied Paste No. 2 (see "Local Treatment of Cancer"). This is the best for superficial cancer where you don't need to go very deep in the tissue. You can make it less painful by adding pulverized opium, one drachm, to the paste. I applied the paste for forty-eight hours, then removed it and poulticed it with the "Poultice Powder" once in two hours until it all came out on the poultice. I then healed it with the "Yellow Healing Salve." Internally I gave "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" teaspoonful after each meal. This patient was 66 years old when I treated him. He lived for fifteen years but never had any return of the disease.

In January, 1887, I had a case of cancer of the face, near the right ear, come under my treatment. It was an open sore with a scab constantly forming on the sore. It commenced nine year previous to my seeing him. Three doctors had examined him and could give no definite diagnosis. Internally I prescribed for him a teaspoonful of the "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" after each meal and sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime. Locally I used Paste No. 3 for two days, renewing it each twenty-four hours. After the paste was discontinued the "Poultice Powder" was used; a fresh poultice was applied every two hours, until the cancer came off on the poultice. The resulting sore was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve." There has never been any return of the cancer.

In January, 1886, I had a patient come to me from Middlesex County, New Jersey, to be treated for cancer of the nose. It began six years before. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal and applied Paste No. 3 to the growth until it was killed. Then I poulticed it with the "Poultice Powder" until it all came out. The "Yellow Healing Salve" healed the sore. Sixteen years later I received a letter from his daughter, telling me that her father went West and died there but had had no symptoms of a return of the cancer since he stopped with my treatment. As he was 63 years old at the time of my treatment it was not to be expected that he would have very many more years of the earth life.

In February, 1886, I treated a man from Pennsylvania for a cancer on the chin. It was ulcerated and about as large as a silver dollar. His age was 47 and the cancer had been growing for two years. I applied Paste No. 1, renewing it every twenty-four hours until it had been on three days. I then poulticed it until the cancer came out on the poultice. The sore was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve." It has never returned to my knowledge.

In March, 1886, I had a patient come to me from Pennsylvania with a cancer on his nose; it was about the size of a silver quarter of a dollar and had begun to ulcerate. His age was 57 and he told me the cancer had been coming for ten years. About eighteen months previous to his coming to me he had burnt it out with caustic himself. Nearly a year ago he went to a cancer specialist in New York State to be treated but the cancer was not cured. I gave him sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime, also "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. Applied Paste No. 1 to the growth and removed it. The "Yellow Healing Salve" healed it. Three years ago I had a letter from him and he informed me that there had never been any symptoms of a return of the disease.

In August, 1886, I treated a lady from Connecticut for a cancer on the side of her neck, lying aver the jugular vein and extending up back of the right ear. The growth began twelve years previous to her coming to me. Several years ago she had had a cancer removed from her face. Her age was 75 and her health fairly good. I app1ied Paste No. 1 over the whole of the diseased surface and kept it on until I felt sure it had killed every part of the diseased growth. I then used the "Poultice Powder" once in two hours until it came off. With the "Yellow Healing Salve" the sore was healed. Internally she was given sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime, also "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. This lady lived for several years after I treated her but did not have any return of the cancer.

In April, 1888, I had a lady under my treatment from New York State. She had a cancer on her back just under the right shoulder blade. It was as large as a cherry. Her age was 66 and the growth began fourteen months previous to her coming to me. I gave her sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime and the "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" teaspoonful after each meal. Locally I applied Paste No. 2 to the growth for forty-eight hours; then removed it and used the "Poultice Powder" to poultice it every two hours until it came off on the poultice. I then healed the cavity with the "Yellow Healing Salve". She lived for ten years after I treated her but never had any return of the disease.

In 1893 I treated a lady in New Jersey for a cancer near the nose on the upper lip. The case had been treated by a cancer specialist and had returned worse than before. She was seventy years old. I gave her "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca," teaspoonful after each meal, and sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime. Locally I applied Paste No. 1 for forty-eight hours; then removed it and used the "Poultice Powder" in the form of a poultice with warm water once in two hours until it came out. Then healed it with the "Yellow Healing Salve." Fifteen years latter I treated her I learned from her son that she had never had any return of the cancer.

In October, 1894, I treated a gentleman in New Jersey for a cancer on the right side of the neck. When he came to me he complained that it pained him occasionally and that there was also a burning sensation. The growth was of a purple color and nearly ready to ulcerate. I applied Paste No. 1 for twenty-four hours, then removed it and put on another and so continued until he had had the plaster on for three days. At that time I began to poultice with the "Poultice Powder" every two hours until the growth came off on the poultice, when it was healed by means of the "Yellow Healing Salve". I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. The case was complicated with bronchitis and catarrh. For the treatment of these complications see my book "DEFINITE MEDICATION", where the treatment is given in full. A year ago I received a letter from him in which he reported a permanent cure. The cancer had never troubled him since it was removed.

In August, 1895, I treated a man in New Jersey for a cancer on the lower lobe of the left ear of two years' growth. It had been cut out eighteen months previous and had returned. I applied Paste No. 3 for forty-eight hours. Then poulticed it with the "Poultice Powder" until it came out. The "Yellow Healing Salve" was used to heal it. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. I have kept in touch with this case ever since it was treated and it has never troubled him since that date.

A man aged 65 came under my treatment for a cancer on the nose caused by a dog bite. It had been five years growing. I gave him sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime, also "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. Locally I applied Paste No. 3 for forty-eight hours, removed it and applied a poultice made from the "Poultice Powder" once in two hours until it came out. I healed it with the "Yellow Healing Salve." Now after six years it remains permanently cured.

CANCER OF THE EYE

This form of the disease is generally found in the corner of the eye or just below the eye, in the form of an ulcer that will not heal by the use of ordinary remedies. The patient may complain of a pain in the growth like the prick of a needle or the part may be considerably inflamed and covered with scabs. This condition may continue until there is swelling of the upper and lower eyelids. Great care must be taken in using any of the usual pastes near the eye so that they do not produce inflammation of the eye. This can be obviated by the frequent application of distilled extract witch hazel and warm water, kept constantly applied to the affected eye.

In 1884 I treated an old gentleman in Southern New Jersey for a cancer in the corner of the eye. He was about 70 years old, a retired sea captain. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca," teaspoonful after each meal; also sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime. Locally I applied Paste No. 3, spread on soft white cloth, once in twenty-four hours; the second application was sufficient to kill the growth. I then used the poultice, made from the "Poultice Powder", once in two hours until it came out on the poultice. It was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve." This patient lived for several years afterwards but never showed any symptoms of the cancer.

In 1886 I treated a lady from New York State for a cancer just below the eye. It was an open sore about as large as a silver quarter. It began fifteen years previous to my seeing it and the patient was 64 years old. I gave her sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime; also "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca," teaspoonful after each meal. Locally I applied Paste No. 1 for forty-eight hours, then removed it and used a poultice of the "Poultice Powder" wet with warm water until it came out. I healed it with the "Yellow Healing Salve", applied three times a day. Several years later I heard that the disease had never returned.

In July, 1888, I treated a lady aged 59 years for a cancer just below the right eye. It was an open ulcer about as large as a ten cent piece. I gave her "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. Locally I used the Paste No. 1 and kept it on for forty-eight hours, after which I poulticed with the "Poultice Powder" until it came off on the poultice. It was healed by means of the "Yellow Healing Salve". In 1904 this patient was still living and had had no return of the trouble.

In 1893 I treated a man in New Jersey for a cancer in the outer corner of his eye. It had been coming for twenty years. Four years previous to his coming to me the growth had been cut out in New York City. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal, and sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime. To the cancer I applied Paste No. 1 for forty-eight hours, then removed it and applied a poultice once in two hours made from the "Poultice Powder." His eyes were very weak and inflamed before I began the treatment. I used the following prescription:

Sulph. Morphia,
Sulph. Zinc, a. a. Gr. i.
Glycerine,
Aqua Rosa, a. a. 3ss.

Mix. Sig. Drop a few drops in the inflamed eye three times a day. This was a permanent cure as there has been no return of the cancer.

In September, 1894, I treated a lady for a cancer just below the left eye. It began five years before. It had been treated with arsenic paste by some cancer doctor and had returned. I gave her "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. Locally I used Paste No. 1 for forty-eight hours; then removed it and applied a poultice once in two hours made with the "Poultice Powder" until it came out on the poultice. It was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve." Now after seventeen years there has been no return of the disease.

In February, 1904, a lady called to consult me about a cancer under the left eye. The skin from the lower eyelid down below the cheek bone was an open sore, discharging thick yellow pus. The upper and lower lids were swollen. She had been operated on four times and had been given up as incurable. I gave her silicea sixth decimal three tablets after each meal, and calcarea phos sixth decimal, three tablets before each meal. Locally to the diseased surface I applied "Cerate Phytolacca folium" spread on soft white cloth, three times a day. This remedy causes no pain but it seems to dissolve all. the diseased mass and heals the sore at the same time. In less than a month she was better in every way. In three months I felt sure that I had conquered the disease. Six years after I treated her she seemed free from the disease.

CANCER OF THE PENIS

The prepuce and glans are the parts most commonly affected. A small tumor resembling a wart first appears. Its base is generally broader than its surface, and it is deep-seated. It looks more like a continuation of the substance of the penis than any outgrowth. By this means we can diagnose it from a venereal tumor, the latter having an evidently diseased character and only a small neck; the base is always smaller than the apex. The cancerous tumor finally ulcerates, throws out fungous growths and the matter discharged becomes fetid and bloody. As the disease advances it involves all the surrounding parts. It generally extends along the body of the penis up to the abdomen until it involves the inguinal and adjacent glandular structure. I have in my practice seen over two hundred cases of this form of cancer. It is generally found in men past the middle age. If only the head of the penis is involved, it can be cured. When the glands at the root of the penis are affected there is not much hope of a cure; at least that has been my experience. The main point is to go deep enough with your local application so that you are sure of reaching all of the diseased growth.

In April, 1886, I treated a man 62 years old, from Pennsylvania, with cancer of the penis. It began two years previous to my seeing him. He had been troubled for some time with difficulty in passing his urine. At the time that I treated him, the water passed off from two openings in the head of the penis. The head of the penis was swollen nearly double the natural size, and discharged a foul smelling pus. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal and sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime. I applied Paste No. 1 locally to the penis for three days. It was necessary to change it every twelve hours to allow him to urinate. At the end of the three days I removed the plaster and began to poultice with the "Poultice Powder" once in two hours, until the growth came off on the poultice, leaving a clean healthy looking sore that was healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve," applied three times a day spread on soft white cloth. In about a month he returned home, the sore being nearly healed. Several years after I had treated him I was informed by one of the family that he had never had any of the old trouble since he was under my care.

In June, 1886, I treated a man from Ohio for cancer of the penis, who was 45 years old. This case had been treated by several cancer doctors before I saw it. I found a large growth on the head of the penis. It seemed to involve about one-third of the body of the organ. I gave him sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime; also "Comp. Syr. Scrophularia" (see Internal Remedies for Cancer) one tablespoonful after each meal. Locally to the growth, I applied Paste No. 1 for twelve hours, then removed it to allow him to urinate. This was continued for three days; I then removed it and began to poultice once in two hours with "Poultice Powder" until the diseased mass came off on the poultice. It was then healed with the "Yellow Healing Salve." To my knowledge there has never been any return of the disease.

In October, 1894, I treated a man from New Jersey for a cancer of the penis. It had been two years growing until, on examination, I found the whole head of the penis a fungous growth, having a foul smelling discharge. I applied Paste No. 1 once in twelve hours for three days, then left it off and began to poultice with the "Poultice Powder" until the diseased mass came off on the poultice. I then healed it with the "Yellow Healing Salve". There has never been any return of the disease. Internally I gave the above patient "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" one teaspoonful after each meal and sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before each meal and at bedtime.

CANCER OF THE ARM, LEG, FOOT AND HAND

In 1885 I had a case of encephaloid cancer under my treatment. The growth was lying over the femoral artery on the leg. It was about three inches in height and about the same in diameter. It was full of bloody matter, and was what is sometimes called "blood cancer." It had been about a year in coming and was caused by an injury of the leg. The patient was a married lady about 25 years old. Owing to its location over the large artery of the leg the doctors were afraid to operate on it. I gave her sulph. strychnine one-thirtieth grain before meals and at bedtime, also "Compound Syr. Scrophularia ", one tablespoonful after each meal. To the local growth I applied Paste No. 1 for twenty-tour hours, when it was removed and another applied. This was continued until the plaster had been on for four days. This seemed long enough to kill the growth; then I began to poultice with the "Poultice Powder" applied once in two hours until the mass came off on the poultice. All the diseased growth came off leaving a sore free from any of the cancerous tissue. It healed nicely under the influence of the "Yellow Healing Salve," applied on soft white cloth three times a day. I kept in touch with this case for several years after I had removed the growth and to my knowledge it never returned.

In May, 1886, I treated a man from Maine for a cancer on his arm about as big as a large walnut. It had just commenced to ulcerate. It began twelve years previous to his coming to me. I gave him "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca" teaspoonful after each meal. To the cancerous growth I made an application of the Paste No. 1 and kept it on for forty-eight hours; then removed it and poulticed it with the "Poultice Powder" once in two hours until it came out on the poultice. The "Yellow Healing Salve" healed the sore. There has been no return of the growth since I treated the case.

Cancer of the hand usually appears upon the back of the hand. The hand is much swollen, tissues indurated and of a purplish color, the discharges are foul and ill smelling. If the cancer appears upon the palm of the hand, as I have seen it many times, it becomes more difficult to cure for the reason that the cancer burrows down under the muscles and blood vessels in the hand. Many a time in my experience I have seen the hand cut off when affected by cancer. In time the cancer reappeared and the arm had to be amputated. This performance was kept up until the patient died. The same thing has often happened in cancer of the foot. They would amputate the foot, then the leg and then death dosed the scene. It is high time that this horrible butchery in the name of science should cease; and the regular school should try to cure these victims of cancer that are dying all around them.

In 1885 I treated a case of cancer on the back of the hand about two inches in diameter; the hand was much swollen and was of a purple color, The cancer had commenced to ulcerate and there was considerable discharge from it. I first applied a poultice of equal parts of pulverized phytolacca, baptisia and slippery elm moistened with warm water, and spread on soft white cloth once in three hours. This reduced the swelling of the hand considerably and caused a free discharge of pus from the growth. The pain was much less in the hand. I kept up this treatment for two or three days until I had reduced the swelling of the hand and the growth had seemed to contract somewhat upon itse1f. Then I applied Paste No. 1 for forty-eight hours to destroy all of the diseased mass. It was then poulticed for about five days with the "Poultice Powder" until it came off on the poultice. The "Yellow Healing Salve" healed the sore. I gave him internally "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. Twenty years after I treated the above patient he reported that he had never had any appearance of the disease.

In January, 1890, I treated a man in New Jersey for a cancer on the bottom of the right toot, about as large as a silver half dollar. It had ulcerated and was discharging some pus. The cancer was on the ball of the foot and was caused by an injury. The foot was swollen to some extent. I first applied a poultice of pulverized slippery elm and lobelia seed, equal parts, mixed with warm water. This poultice was applied once in two hours to take down the swelling of the foot. After that was accomplished Paste No. 1 was used for two days to destroy the growth. I poulticed it with the "Poultice Powder" for five days until the cancer came out on the poultice. It healed nicely under the use of the "Yellow Healing Salve." I gave him, "Comp. Syr. Phytolacca", teaspoonful after each meal. There has never been any return of the cancer.

Cancer of the foot is often dificult to cure for the reason that the blood naturally settles down in the foot and the cancer frequently burrows down under the muscles and blood vessels of the foot.

LUPUS

This is a form of Epithelial Cancer. It used to be called "eating cancer," owing to the fact that it often spreads out into the adjoining surface of the face and destroys so much tissue. Some of the wise men in medicine have declared that lupus is not a cancer. During my professional life I have watched many cases of lupus and I am of the opinion that lupus is only another variety of cancer. To say that it is of a tubercular origin, when there is no tuberculosis in the system, is stretching the imagination. Those who have had the same opportunity to study the disease by actual clinical experience with the medical treatment of hundreds of cases of lupus must realize the fact that it is something more than a skin disease.

We have the Lupus Excedens (noli-me-tangere of the older authorities). This form first appears as a tubercle on the ala of the nose; it is hard, dusky red, quite sore, keeps spreading over the nose, ulcerates and forms scabs. There is a foul smelling discharge from the sore. The destroying of the tissues may continue until quite a surface of the bone has been exposed and the face may assume a wolfish expression, disgusting to look at. Lupus non Excedens. In this form of lupus there are extensive changes in the structure of the skin, without much consecutive ulceration.

In the treatment of lupus we have hydrocotyle asiatica as the first remedy to be thought of. This is a plant by means of which Dr. Boilean of Mauritius, cured fifty-seven cases of lupus. In all, without an exception, the disease was arrested in a very short time. (See "Helmuth's System of Surgery.") This remedy is indicated when there is a profuse perspiration and the skin is covered with a dry eruption, thickening of the skin, and exfoliation of scales. The dose is, hydrocotyle first decimal, ten drops once in three hours. In lupus with considerable ulceration of the skin hydrastis is a good local application. Apply tincture hydrastis 3i, glycerine 3ix. Mix. Sig. Apply once in three hours. Internally you should give ten drops once in three hours of the first decimal dilution of the drug.

If the bones of the nose seem to be involved and there is a very offensive discharge from the nostrils, Aurum mur third decimal is the remedy; dose, three tablets three times a day. When there is ulceration of the nasal septum and the ulcers are painful to the touch, worse in cold weather, with a stringy discharge, bichromate potash is the remedy. Use the third decimal, giving three tablets once in three hours.

In June, 1890, I treated a case of lupus that had spread all over the nose; it had ulcerated and discharged a fearful smelling pus. It was almost impossible for any one to stay in the room with the patient. The whole of the diseased surface was covered with scabs. I applied saturated solution Chloride Chromium with a camel's hair brush to every part of the diseased surface, especially to the scabs three times a day for nearly a week. I then applied a poultice made from the "Poultice Powder" moistened with warm water. It was spread on soft white cloth and changed once in two hours until all the scabs came off. Then I used the "Yellow Healing Salve" to heal the ulcerated surface. Internally I gave the patient the following prescription:

Tinct. Thuja,
Tinct. Baptisia,
Tinct. Phytolacca, a. a. 3i.
Mix. Sig. Ten drops once in three hours.

The "Saturated Solution Chloride Chromium" is prepared by Prof. John Uri Lloyd, Cincinnati, Ohio. The above treatment cured the patient and left the face free from the disease and there has been no return of the trouble.

In another case of lupus which came under my care the difficulty was situated under the right eye and was spreading towards the nose. The sore had ulcerated and was about as large as a silver dollar, being covered with scabs. In this case I used the following treatment. Dip a camel's hair brush in creosote and then dry powdered calomel and touch all the scabs with this mixture once a day. Internally I gave ten drops of the first decimal dilution tincture Hydrocotyle every three hours. This treatment conquered the disease and it has never returned.
