eight months. It began on my neck in
the form of a rash and spread all over
mv body in red splotches. My sfan was
ery sore and red and the itching and
borning cansedrne to scratch till I would
be tired and would irritate the breaking

not sleep nights and my clothing aggra

the rash developed into large sore erup

"I was treated "but to no avail. Then
I got one cake of Culicura Soap and two
boxes of Cuticura Ointment. In two or
three days they gave me relief and in
