TREATMENT. 

 

The treatment, to be successful, requires that the patient should 

first be placed in a favorable condition. Anything which tends to 

excite the disease must be avoided, as dissipations, late suppers, 

etc. The diet must be plain and nourishing without being stimulating, 

and be taken regularly. Exercise, short of fatigue, will be 

beneficial. The clothing should be warm and worn loosely, especially 

about the waist. Water is of great importance in the treatment of this 

trouble. The sitting-bath may be used every day, and injections of 

cold or tepid water should be used three or four times a day, 

according to the severity of the discharge. 

 

An injection of weak green tea will be found good in some mild cases, 

as also sweet cider or a weak solution of alum. 

 

One of the best tonics is the muriated tincture of iron, of which take 

twenty or twenty-five drops in half a tumbler of water three or four 

times a day. An excellent injection is made by taking three drams of 

tannic acid and an ounce of alum, dissolving in a quart of water, and 

inject one-third three times a day. The bowels should be kept open by 

Rochelle or Epsom salts, or seidlitz powder. When there is great 

debility of the organs, or when the disease has been brought on by 

exposure to cold, pregnancy, abortions, etc., the following will be 

found very successful: 

 

Tincture of aloes, two ounces; muriated tincture of iron, four drams. 

Mix. Dose: Thirty-five drops in water three times a day. At the same 

time use the following injection: Sulphate of zinc (white vitriol), 

two drams; sugar of lead, two drams. Mix in one quart of water, and 

use one-fourth for each injection.
