A dressing of Ichthyol and glycerine should be employed for a few days.
Ichthyol does not mix well with the albolene, but precipitates quickly.
Allow this to almost dry, and then sprinkle on talcum powder which smooths over the dry varnish of Ichthyol.
The Right Spot, as related in the chapter on Ichthyol, is either the vault of the pharynx or the upper surface of the soft palate.
An ointment containing twenty-five per cent of Ichthyol is also a useful application.
As remarked in the chapter on Pollens, I have succeeded with the milder methods of rosin-weed, faradism and Ichthyol.
This has been found to be the case with asafetida, valerian, Ichthyol, etc.
Ichthyol leaves the throat raw and uncomfortable for a few minutes.
Ichthyol, 10 to 20% in lanoline spread on linen and worn at night, often dispels an attack at the beginning.
Or a similar paste with the glycerine in the foregoing replaced with Ichthyol may be used.
