section 12


The following is a special cure for this case: to do something against the external cause whence the fever comes; whether it be caused by fire or by the sun. Put the sick man in a cold place and cool the air with a linen cloth, in the same way as a bellows cools it. If the pain 96 be in the head, let cold water be poured thereon, for it cools quickly; and put him in a bath of hot water and let him remain long therein; thereafter let it (the cure) be accomplished by rubbing with oil of roses or water rue (?) or violets.
