INDEX

 

The galvanic as well as the faradaic current is to be used under proper 

circumstances. The application of electricity to the nerve centers by 

means of central galvanization, and also general and local external 

faradization, are necessary methods to be employed in electrical 

treatment. 

 

_Circumcision_.--In cases of phimosis, in which irritation is produced 

by retained secretions, division of the prepuce, or circumcision, is 

the proper remedy. These cases are not infrequent, but the exciting 

cause of much of the difficulty is often overlooked. The same remedy 

is often useful in cases of long prepuce. 

 

When the glans penis is unusually tender and sensitive, this condition 

will usually be removed by the daily washing with soap and water 

necessary for cleanliness. If this does not suffice, or if there are 

slight excoriations caused by acrid secretions, apply, in addition, 

a weak solution of tannin in glycerine once a day. 

 

_Impotence_.--Loss of sexual power arising from any form of sexual 

excess, should be treated on the same general plan laid down for the 

treatment of emissions and other weaknesses. Cold to the spine, and 

short, but frequent, local cold applications, are among the most useful 

remedies; but, probably, electricity, discreetly used, is by far the 

most valuable of all remedies. It should be applied both internally 

and externally. 

 

The use of cantharides and other aphrodisiac remedies to stimulate the 

sexual organs is a most pernicious practice. The inevitable result is 

still greater weakness. They should never be used under any 

circumstances whatever. On the contrary, everything of a stimulating 

character must be carefully avoided, even in diet. 

 

_Varicocele_.--Patients suffering from this difficulty should wear a 

proper suspensory bag, as the continued pressure of the distended veins 

upon the testes, if unsupported, will ultimately cause degenerative 

changes and atrophy. A surgical operation, consisting of the removal 

of a portion of the skin of the scrotum, is proper if the patient desires 

an operation; no other operation is advisable. 

 

The wearing of a suspensory bag is also advisable for those whose 

testicles are unusually pendulous. 

 

Drugs, Rings, etc.--If drugs, _per se_, will cure invalids of any class, 

they are certainly worthless in this class of patients. The whole 

materia medica affords no root, herb, extract, or compound that alone 

will cure a person suffering from emissions. Thousands of unfortunates 

have been ruined by long-continued drugging. One physician will purge 

and salivate the patient. Another will dose him with phosphorus, 

quinine, or ergot. Another feeds him with iron. Another plies him with 

lupuline, camphor, and digitaline. Still another narcotizes him with 

opium, belladonna, and chloral. Purgatives and diuretics are given by 

another, and some will be found ready to empty the whole pharmacopoeia 

into the poor sufferer's stomach if he can be got to open his mouth 

wide enough. 

 

The way that some of these poor fellows are blistered, and burned, and
