It is now thoroughly established among the best medical authorities that eczema is purely a skin disease, due to a germ and curable only through the skin. It is not a blood disease at all; in fact, thousands of people suffer with skin disease and are perfectly healthy otherwise, and therefore prove they have no diseased blood. Smeary salves cannot reach the germs because they do not ienetrate the skin. The only way to reach the germs is by means of a penetrating liquid. Such a liquid can be obtained bv simply inixiug ordinary oil of winter green with thvmol, glycerine and other healing agents. This compound known as D. D. D. Prescription stops the itch instantly and tte cures all appear to be permanent. In fact, it took thous ands of cures, case after case, before the best scientific authorities were con vinced of the absolute merit of this remedy. The effect of D. D. D. Pre scription in numbing the itching eczema germs is seen within one minute after the first application. We especially recommend D. D. D. So.ip in connect on with this treatment. Chas.
