Fortunately, this disease is not a very fatal one. With reference to its treatment, Lebert says, "My recent, as well as my former, experience, has demonstrated the fact that there is no drug which may be said to exercise any direct influence upon the course of the disease. The expectant plan of treatment, therefore, is the only proper one. Rest in bed, fresh air, cleanliness, fever diet, milk, soups, meat broths and cooling drinks, are the principal things to be attended ft." "Clear, pure water, and carbonic acid water, are, as a general thing, the beverages best borne." The general treatment recommended for fever should be pursued. Ice should be applied to the head to relieve the headache, cool sponging, compresses, and cool enemas, should be used to reduce the temperature. When the pain is severe, it may be relieved by the hot blanket pack, applied once or twice a day for half an hour. The majority of patients have a craving for acid, and may take lemon juice as freely as desired. For the soreness and pain at the pit of the stomach, apply hot fomentations three or four times a day, fifteen or twenty minutes each time. As this is a contagious and infectious disease, the same precautions should be taken respecting disinfection during and after the attack as has been recommended for typhoid and typhus fevers.
