_Local Fomentations_.--When great local irritation exists, with 

considerable pain and spasmodic muscular action, the application of 

hot fomentations to the perineum will be found the most effectual means 

of giving relief. The hot douche and hot sitz bath are useful under 

the same circumstances. 

 

In some cases, alternate hot and cold applications are more effectual 

in allaying local irritation than hot fomentations alone. 

 

_Local Cold Bathing_.--The genital organs should be daily bathed in 

cold water just before retiring. Simply dashing water upon the parts 

for two or three minutes is insufficient; more prolonged bathing is 

necessary. A short application of cold occasions a strong and sudden 

reaction which increases local congestion; hence, the bath should be 

continued until the sedative effect is fully produced, which will 

require at least fifteen minutes. The water must be cold; about 60 

degrees is the best temperature. Ice should be used to cool the water 

in warm weather. It should be applied thoroughly, being squeezed from 

a sponge upon the lower part of the abdomen and allowed to run down. 

 

_Enemata_.--The use of the enema is an important means of aiding 

recovery, but it has been much abused, and must be employed with caution. 

When the bowels are very costive, relieve them before retiring by a 

copious injection of tepid water. The "fountain syringe" is the best 

instrument to employ. 

 

Useful as is the syringe when needed, nothing could be much worse than 

becoming dependent upon it. The bowels must be made to act for 

themselves without such artificial assistance, by the use of proper 

food, especially graham flour and oatmeal, and the avoidance of hot 

drinks, milk, sugar, and other clogging and constipating articles; by 

wearing the abdominal bandage; by thorough kneading and percussion of 

the abdomen several times daily for five minutes at a time; by taking 

one or two glasses of cold water half an hour before breakfast every 

morning; and by plenty of muscular exercise daily. The enema should 

be used occasionally, however, rather than allow the bowels to continue 

costive, and to avoid severe straining at stool. 

 

A small, cold enema taken just before retiring, and retained, will often 

do much to allay local irritation. 

 

_Electricity_.--Probably no single agent will accomplish more than 

this remedy when skillfully applied. It needs to be carefully used, 

and cannot be trusted in the hands of those not acquainted with the 

physical properties of the remedy and scientific methods of applying 

it. 

 

_Internal Applications_.--Complete and rapid success greatly depends 

upon skillful internal treatment, in a large number of cases. We are 

aware that there is considerable prejudice, in certain quarters, 

against internal treatment; but having had the opportunity of observing 

the effects of careful treatment applied in this way, and having put 

to the test of practical experience this method, we feel justified in 

recommending that which is approved on both theoretical and practical 

grounds; for it is rational to suppose that proper treatment applied
