Cache-Control: public, max-age=1024000 Pharmacopoeia Extemporanea: A Dysenteric Foment

A Dysenteric Foment.

Take Oak leaves green 10 handfuls; boil them in a close cover'd Pot in a strong Wine Vinegar as much as needful for a Foment, with which let the Anus be fomented, and the hot Vapor received up into it.

This truly is Rulandus his Experiment, but (I declare it) I should scarce trust to such a slight Remedy alone, in so direful calamitous, and hardly superable Malady. Howbeit, I am not unwilling to allow it place. provideth it put not by the use of other proper Remedies.
