A turpentine-stupe, which is one of the most frequently-used extemporaneous counter-irritants, is made as follows: A piece of flannel folded in several layers, or a piece of spongio-piline, is wrung out in hot water, and a few drops (five to fifteen) of turpentine are sprinkled over it. This is placed over the affected region, and is confined by a towel or napkin pinned around the part. Turpentine, applied in this way, is a very active rubefacient, and may even vesicate, so that attention is required to avoid overaction.
