Dr. Graves** advises washing the parts with Camphorated Spirits of Wine, when any discoloration occurs. In Eczema and other Skin Diseases attended with burning heat, Camphor may be advantageously employed as a local sedative. Dr. T. M'Call Anderson * recommends that the ecze-matous surface be sprinkled over with a small quantity of a powder containing Camphor, and that a cold potato starch poultice be afterwards applied.
