Essay, Serial


Medical Treatment, Human Development, Disease, Pathology

    Continuing its discussion of children's diseases, details the origins and symptoms of the 'much dreaded' disease of measles (346). Discusses the treatment of the disease, notably the techniques of 'unloading the uncongested state of the lungs' and the use of 'aperient' powders (347). Emphasises the importance of not stopping 'the treatment with the apparent subsidence of the disease, as the after-consequences of measles are too often more serious, and to be more dreaded than measles itself' (348).
