LIQUID CURES ECZEMA
WHERE SALVES FAIL.
In regard to akin diseases, medical
authorities are now agreed on this:
Don't Imprison the disease germs In
your skin by the use of greasy salves,
and thus encourage them to multiply.
A true cure of all eczematous diseases
can be brought about only by using the
healing agents In the form of a liquid.
WASH THE GERMS OUT.
A simple wash: A compound of Oil
of Wlntergreen, Thymol and other In
gredients as combined In the D. D. D.
Prescription. This penetrates to the
disease germa ahd destroys them, then
soothes and heals the skin as nothing
else has ever done.
A 25-cent trial bottle will start the
cure and give you Instant relief.
