This is known by a continual fever, a fixed, burning, pricking pain at the pit of the stomach, which grows worse when any thing is swallowed down; then follows a painful vomiting and hiccup. Add to these a hard, contracted, quick pulse, great restlessness, thirst, and coldness of the extremities. When it is owing to poison, a violent emetic or purge, give new milk with sallad oil, cream, or oil of sweet almonds. When eruptions of the skin are drove back, direct emulsions of cold feeds, a few grains of nitre, with one of camphire mixt with a scruple of compound powder of crabs claws. In other cafes after bleeding, the best remedy is a blister laid on the part affected.
