frightful looking bruise, but from the
first it should have complete rest and
a treatment of hot and cold douches.
the hot being used at first, when the
swelling is painful, and the cold later
on, as a sort of tonic to the relaxed
muscles. The hot must be very hot
and the cold very, cold, as the tepid
water does harm rather than good.
For the first day of a strain, when
all the wrenched cartilages and mus
cles are aching, great relief is found in
a poultice of egg and salt. To make it.
beat the white of an egg till light, but
not stiff. Stir in gradually a cup and
a half of salt, or. more if needed, to
make a thick, pastelike Icing. Spread
this on a cloth and bandage in place.
Cover all with oil silk or a thick bath
towel to protect the sheets, since the
egg leaks out continually. After this
has relieved the soreness begin with
hot water fomentations and wear a
