“Take cranberries and stew them and make a poultice of them.” This is a remedy that cannot be beaten for this disease. It gives relief in a very short time and saves the patient a great deal of suffering. If the whisky is used to wet the poultice it is much better, as it keeps the poultice moist longer. All that is necessary is simply to put on more whisky and it will not be necessary to change the poultice so often.
