To the Editor:—
The fact is that dermatologists find acetylsalicylic acid in the form of 0.3 Gm. capsules their most efficient remedy against several varieties of pruritus, including that of urticaria, and this in spite of the fact that urticaria is one of the untoward effects of acetylsalicylic acid. Ill results from this treatment have not been brought to attention.
