This eruption is usually preceded by feverish symptoms. About the second or third day, the pimples become filled with a watery fluid, which is never converted into yellow matter as in the small pox; and about the fifth day, they usually dry away, and are formed into crusts or scabs.

Treatment

Give composition or saffron and snake root tea, which is all the medicine that is usually required in this form of disease. Should the constitution of the patient be so feeble that the eruption is not well thrown out, a course of medicine should be administered, and repeated if necessary.
