Very little need be said regarding the dieting of other infectious diseases. All may be safely treated more or less on the lines indicated in the preceding pages. The continued fevers, such as typhus and relapsing fever, should be handled very much as enteric fever. At the slightest sign of diarrhoea in the former, it is well to stop beef-tea or other meat broths at once, and to add lime-water to the milk, substituting brandy for whisky if the patient has been previously stimulated. Diarrhoea, when it does occur in typhus, is apt to be most intractable, and sometimes appears to determine a fatal result. Smallpox is one of the diseases which should be liberally fed, especially in the secondary fever, which is usually most exhausting. There is no reason to keep solids from patients in this stage, if the condition of the mouth permits mastication and if the digestion remains fairly good. A good time to take the opportunity of feeding liberally in this disease is the comparatively apy-rexial interval between the primary and secondary fevers. This gives the patient a good start for the suppurating stage, and is likely to be of much benefit to him if later on there is a real difficulty in providing sufficient nourishment. Chiekenpox and German measles are such mild infections and have, as a rule, such a short febrile period that normal diet need seldom be stopped for more than two or three days. In mumps the only difficulty is a mechanical one, the pain which is caused by attempting to open the jaws. The diet should be fluid and, if necessary, may be sucked through a tube. In erysipelas, unless the pyrexia is very considerable, patients usually take soft solids well in the febrile stage, and if suppuration occurs, it is as well to be liberal in the dietary. Cerebro-spinal meningitis may offer difficulties partly owing to the frequent vomiting, partly mechanical from the extreme retraction of the head. The vomiting seems to be of nervous origin, and between the attacks the patients may take a practically normal diet, particularly if the case is chronic, as the wasting is often extreme. The mechanical difficulty in swallowing is best combated by the nasal tube. Liberal feeding, whenever possible, should be the rule in this disease.
