Eczema is Now Curable.
a st. Louis chemist, after many
years of careful experimenting and in
vestigation, has discovered a simple
remedy that has cured hundreds of
cases of eczema that had been pro
nounced incurable. This chemist be
Iieved that eczema and all itching
skin diseases were of local origin and
were caused by germs which attacked
and fed on the skin. ' He began to
search for a remedy that would de
stroy these germs, and found that by
combining the active principles of cer
tain well known vegetable drugs, and
applying them locally, the first appli
cation stopped the itching and burn
ing, and if used persistently woula
drive all germs and their poisons to
the surface of the skin, and destroy
them, leaving a nice, clear, healthy
skin. He gave this remarkable rem
edy the suggestive name of Zemo
and since its introduction to the pub
lie Zemo has proved a very popular
remedy and is today recognized the
most successful and meritorious rem
edy ever produced for the relief and
cure of eczema and all diseases of
the skin and scalp.
Harper House pharmacy endorses
and recommends Zemo and says that
they believe Zemo to be an honest
medicine and will do all that is claim
ed for it.
