section 61


And there are many kinds of these (warts), such as lupia, and acrochordones, and note, it is good to cut them, and cauterize the place, so that too much blood may not flow from them; or let garlic be broken together with salt, and change it between the day and the night three times, and continue using it well for nine days thus, and press them out with a plate.475 If it be desired that blood shall not flow from them after the cutting, apply cobwebs to them, or white of egg along with the hair of a hare. And a common cure is to tie them round the base with a strand of horse hair, or a thread of silk, until they fall off.476
