This book does not enter into the pathology of affections of the skin, hair and nails, but simply describes their general care by means of hygiene, water, soaps, lotions, ointments, creams, paints, etc., giving formulas for many such preparations, many of which seem to have proprietary names. One receives the impression that this is a book for the laity rather than a guide to the general practitioner or specialist in this branch of dermatology.
