HOME CURE FOR ECZEMA.
Oil of Wintergreen, Thymol, Glycerine,
Etc., Used as a Simple Wash.
It really seems strange that so many
people suffer year in and year out with
eczema, when it is now 110 longer a
secret that oil of wintergreen mixed
with thymol, glycerine, etc., makes a
wash that is bound to cure.
Old, obstinate cases, it is true, can
not be cured in a few days, but there
is absolutely no sufferer from eczema
who ever used this simple wash and
did not find immediately that wonder
fully soothing, calm, cool sensation
that comes when the itch is tak.n
away. Instantly upon applying a few
diops of the wash the remedy, takes
effect, the itch is allayed. There is no
need of experiment the patient knows
Instead of trying to compound the
oil of wintergreen, thymol, glycerine,
etc., in the right proportions ourselves
wo are using a prescription which is
universally found the most effective.
It is known as the D. D. D. prescrip
tion, or oil of wintergreen compound.
It is riade by the D. D. D. company of
Clficago, and our long experience with
this remedy has given us great c.onfi

We have had IS years of success here. Over
50 doctors, who were probably very good doctors,
came here a3 specialists during that time and
failed as specialists. We feel justly proud of
our record. Most people think blood poison -cannot

have not failed in a single case. We not only ,
cured them, but we gave them a pleasant cure.
We did no: let thorn become disfigured, with
sores or with hair falling out in patches. One of
us has speat nine seasons in Hot Springs, and
while the treatment there is very heroic, still they
have never equalled our record. Although we
have treated thousands of nervous sufferers,
some both mentally apd physically weak, brought
on by dissipation and habits that were hard to break, still we did not
have to send one in a thousand to a sanitarium or asylum. Our suc
