I have known the sitz-bath, applied two or three times a day, completely cure an attack of this nature.
Let her take a sitz-bath of warm water, considerably salted.
The cure will be hastened by employing a sitz-bath (sitting in a tub of hot water, or in a bath-tub).
Enamelled bath-tub, separate room for a shower, and a sitz-bath!
Ordered, when in sitz-bath the upper part of the body to be well rubbed.
Noon, douche, rubbing-sheet and sitz-bath; afternoon, packing-sheet and bath.
After dinner I roll ninepins or walk till four, then sitz-bath, and another walk till six.
At night, a rubbing-sheet but no sitz-bath, as it is too late to walk after it.
Morning, packing-sheet one hour, bath three minutes; noon, two rubbing-sheets and sitz-bath; afternoon as the morning.
When better, the packing-sheet in the afternoon was abandoned for a sitz-bath ten minutes.
sitz bath (sĭts, zĭts)
A device shaped like a chair in which one bathes in a sitting position, immersing only the hips and buttocks.
A bath taken in such a device especially for therapeutic reasons.
