According to Mr Crowther, the blistered surface is best kept clean by daily fomentation with warm water.
At intervals, as the patient feels it desirable, this fomentation may be renewed.
The simplest remedy is suction, fomentation, and the application of oil.
The fomentation may then be given once a day until the pain is removed.
This explains our hot poultice and fomentation as used with cold cloths.
Rub on a little oil when the fomentation comes off, and keep the head warm.
The fomentation should be frequently renewed, and the sprained part kept in a state of rest and relaxation.
The quantity of liquid forming a fomentation, as well as the size of the cloths employed, must entirely depend upon circumstances.
Her privy parts must be gently stroked down with this fomentation.
Hops may be used topically as a fomentation or a poultice, as a resolvent or discutient in painful swellings and tumours.
