section 65


Since486 we are speaking of felon, these are its prognostics: vomiting, strong pulse, cold sweat, heart weakness, and if that increase it signifies death. Item the felon which has the colour of flame is not curable. Item dry some pig's gall and apply a piece the size of the opening to the ulcer, and if none of it adhere to the sore, it is a sign of death, and if it do, it heals the felon: and likewise the bite of a mad dog.
