COULD NOT SLEEP
Looked Like Boils. Inflamed, Itched
and .Hurt. Used Cuticura Soap
and Ointment. Hand Well.
E. B. No. 17, Thorntown; Ind. "My
husband while working skinned a little place
on his hand and it made a running sore and
others broke out all around
it. They looked like boils.
The skin all around them
was red and inflamed. It
would itch and hurt so
badly that he could not
sleep at night.
"We tried several kinds
of medicines but nothing
helped it until I saw the
advertisement of Cuticura
Eoap and Ointment. I sent and got a
(ample of Cuticura Soap and Ointment and
fter the first two or three days using it
began to heal. He would bathe the sores
with the Cuticura Soap and then use the
t'utlcura Ointment night and morning. He
wed one cake of Cuticura Soap and one box
t Cuticura Ointment. In a week's time his
land was well." Signed) Mrs. Bertha
uleason, June IS. 191.1.
In the rare of baby's skin and hair, Cuti
cura Soap is the mother's'favorite. Not
only is It unrivaled in purit y and refreshing
fragrance, but its gentle emollient proper
ties are usually sufficient to allay minor
irritations, remove redness, roughness and
chafing, and soothe sensitive conditions.
Assisted by Cuticura Ointment, It is most
valuable in the treatment of eczemas, rashes
and other itching, burning Infantile erup
tions. Sold everywhere. Liberal sample of
each mailed frw. with 32-p. Skin Book. Ad
dress post-card "Cuticura. Dent.T, Boston."
HTMen who shave and shampoo with Cu
ticura Soap will find II best for skin and scalp.
