In this little book, the author advocates the use of sozoiodol of mercury, with iodid of sodium. The following is his formula:

Sozoiodol of mercury 5 grs.

Iodid of sodium, 10 grs.

Distilled water, 200 min.

10 to 15 minims for an injection.

The patient should receive an injection about once a week for about six or seven weeks or until all skin and throat manifestations have disappeared, when once a fortnight will be found sufficient for another three or four months. After this, once a month will suffice.
