hot stage with profuse sweating. These symptoms may recur periodi-
cally for several days (H. Greenhow, quoted Lancet, i., 1863 v. p. 541).

Cutaneous System. The internal administration of the oxide or other
astringent zinc salts checks the secretions of the skin.

ZINC. 309

SYNERGISTS. The oxides of silver and of bismuth are much allied in
action with oxide of zinc: henbane and belladonna promote its power of
controlling perspiration (v. p. 312). The chloride of zinc resembles in
corrosive and disinfectant properties the chloride of mercury, and both
the chloride and nitrate are allied in action with other mineral caustics.

ANTAGONISTS. The chemical antidotes in cases of poisoning by the
corrosive compounds of zinc are lime-water, alkaline carbonates, and tan-
nic acid; these should be given in mucilage or milk. Valerianate of zinc
is decomposed by acids and by most metallic salts. Purgatives and
diaphoretics interfere with the action of zinc salts.

chloride of zinc was first introduced as a secret remedy for cancer by
Canquoin in Paris in 1837, and was combined with sanguinaria in the
paste of Dr. Fell, which had a temporary popularity (Medical Times, i.,
1858, p. 11). Veiel recorded excellent results from its use in lupus
( Medico- Chirurgical ^Review, ii., 1860), and it is certainly a very reliable
escharotic. I have seen immediate improvement from it, in some very
severe cases, especially of facial lupus and rodent ulcer. It has dis-
advantages in being deliquescent, and hence readily penetrating adjacent
healthy tissues and disposing to hemorrhage, but when mixed with flour,
zinc oxides, or better still with lime sulphate or gutta-percha, it becomes
quite manageable. The nitrate of zinc, though not in such frequent use,
has, perhaps, advantages over the chloride; according to Mr. Marshall, it
penetrates deeper, and causes less pain: in lupus it was commended by
Dr. Tilbury Fox, and I have had very successful results with it, generally
using a paste made with equal parts of nitrate, flour, and mucilage spread
on lint.

Both this salt and the chloride are equally applicable to all forms of
strumous and syphilitic ulceration. Franchi reports arrest in some very
severe cases of this kind, when acid nitrate of mercury, iodine, etc., had
been tried, without success (Gazette Med. de Paris, February, 1870).
Maisonneuve used the chloride made into firm paste with flour in the
form of fleche's (" arrowheads "), which he thrust into incisions all round
a morbid growth, thus destroying a zone of tissue and separating the
tumor; but this process is more painful and prolonged than the use of
the knife, and does not prevent recurrence better than an equally exten-
sive incision.

Sir J. Y. Simpson advocated sulphate of zinc in powder as the best
caustic for these maladies, whether affecting the uterus or other parts: it
is simple, easily applied and managed, safe, efficient, fairly rapid in action
(five or six days), and does not deliquesce. In cases where the epithelium
was destroyed, he applied the anhydrous salt in fine powder or mixed
with glycerin into a paste (1 oz. of sulphate to 1 dr. of glycerin). In
other cases, e.g., of cancer of the breast, he mixed the salt with sulphuric


acid and scored the part with a quill at successive applications {Medical
Times, i., 1857, and 1859); he records many good results, which were to
some extent corroborated, but his practice has not been largely followed.
Mr. Erichsen found it very painful (Medical Times, i., 1857, p. 238).

Warts Ncevi. The strong chloride is useful for destroying warts
and superficial nsevi. Mr. Weeden Cooke has suggested a convenient
mode of applying it, viz., by soaking lint in the deliquescent salt, drying
it, and cutting off suitable pieces when required: if covered it will pre-
serve its power for many weeks (Medico- Chirurgical Revieiv, January,

"Wounds; Mr. C. de Morgan, and others, recommended the sponging
of recent wounds, whether from accident or operation, with strong solu-
tions of zinc chloride (20 to 40 gr. in the ounce), on disinfectant principles,
i.e., to destroy "germs" (Lancet, i., 1866; Medico- Chirurgical Review,
January, 1866). This seems to have good effect in lessening risk of septi-
caemia, etc., but has in a measure been superseded by the more detailed
and exact method of Lister. It is, however, still largely used, and is
valuable in many cases, especially where Listerism cannot be carried out:
it cleanses the wound and any old sinuses, and lessens and prevents
suppuration. Some surgeons employ it especially after excision of ma-
lignant tumors.

Eczema Erythema. The oxide and the carbonate of zinc, and "cala-
mine " (impure native carbonate), form useful sedative, absorbent, and
protective powders for inflamed surfaces, and sometimes are indicated
when serous discharge is present: they are generally mixed with ^ or \
part of a neutral powder, such as that of orris-root, starch, or magnesia.
They may be used also suspended in mucilaginous liquids as a good
lotion, e.g., for erythematous acne of the face, or in the form of ointment
mixed with oleic acid oleate of zinc (Crocker: British Medical Jour-
nal, i., 1879), or vaseline, or the benzoated lard of Mr. Erasmus Wilson :
benzoated zinc ointment, when properly made, is an excellent application
for irritative and eczematous conditions. A lotion containing 5 gr. of
sulphate in the ounce, relieves the itching of eczema and other skin dis-
eases, but is liable at first to cause some smarting.

Relaxed or Discharging Mucous Surfaces. For ordinary relaxed or
discharging surfaces, when astringents are indicated, the sulphate of zinc
is one of the best: from 1 to 2 gr. in the ounce of distilled water is a
usual strength, and combined with a stimulant, such as spirit of rosemary
or lavender, this forms the ordinary "red lotion" of many hospitals, and
is suitable for any indolent atonic ulcerations: sulpho-carbolate of zinc
also forms a good detergent lotion (Lancet, ii., 1868, p. 763).

For catarrhal throat affections accompanied with deafness, Dr. Druitt
finds zinc sulphate in solution act better than ordinary acid gargles, and
Mr. Nunn reports similarly as to the chloride (Medical Times, i., 1857,

ZINC. 311

pp. 210,247): a spray containing this is excellent for relaxed pharynx
and congested vocal cords.

In catarrhal conjunctivitis, and otorrhoea, collyria and weak warm in-
jections of the same salts (2 gr. to the ounce of water) are useful, and 4
gr. to the ounce is a good strength for injection in ozoena ; morphia,
atropia, or carbolic acid may be combined with the astringent.

The chloride lotion is also valuable in gonorrhoeal and purulent oph-
thalmia, and Mr. Hutchinson reports it as less painful than silver nitrate,
and sometimes completing the cure when that remedy failed (London
Hospital Report, 1867-68).

In leucorrhoea and gonorrhoea, injections containing 1 to 2 gr. of zinc
sulphate or sulpho-carbolate to the ounce, are very suitable after the
early acute stage has subsided (Medical Times, ii., 1870, p. 454, etc.);
they are sometimes better combined with an equal quantity of lead ace-
tate. As a general rule, the more acute the condition, the more fre-
quently should a weak solution (|- gr. or less in the ounce) be applied,
and as the inflammation becomes less or passes into a chronic stage, one
or two applications daily of a double or treble strength are best. Some
time ago I recommended to Dr. Ringer's notice the prescription of a very
dilute injection of sulphate (1 to 2 gr. in the pint of water) to be used
every hour or-half-hour from the commencement of a gonorrhoaal attack,
and his experience supports mine, that this can arrest the disorder in
twenty-four to forty -eight hours; care is required so as to avoid risk of
pain and swelling of the testicles, i.e., the injection must be used less often,
or left off, if any such symptoms set in. A stronger solution (1 to 10 gr.
in the ounce) is advisable, but used less frequently, in more chronic cases
(Lloyd: Lancet, ii., 1850; W. Cooke: Medical Times, i., 1860, p. 127).
The chloride, and indeed many other astringent salts, may be used in a
similar manner with advantage.

THERAPEUTICAL ACTION (INTERNAL). Narcotic and other Poison-
ing. Zinc sulphate is a good emetic for cases of this kind: 10 gr. in
warm water is an average dose, but 20 gr. is the amount preferred by
many practitioners; if the mouth be firmly closed, it may be adminis-
tered by a tube passed through the nose to the gullet, or by the stomach-
pump through a gag, and if the larger dose be used, its after-rejection
must be secured. When an emetic is given by the stomach, its bulk has
an effect in securing the result: thus, the greater quantity of warm water
that given with the zinc sulphate the better it will act: time also
makes a difference, for smaller doses given slowly have acted better than
large ones quickly swallowed. In some cases a few grains have been
given by intravenous injection, and have produced emesis.

Gastralgia Diarrhoea. Prof. Gubler, having remarked the analo-
gous effects of the oxides of zinc and of bismuth, suggested the substi-
tution of the former when expense was an object, and experience has


proved that the zinc compound will often act in an extremely satisfac-
tory manner in relieving gastric pain, especially when this is followed by
diarrhosa of undigested food; it has, however, more tendency to nauseate
than the bismuth salt. The dose should commence at 1 gr., and not ex-
ceed 3 gr., and should not, as a rule, be given on an empty stomach.

In dyspepsia connected with oxaluria, Bartholow has found the sul-
phate useful, and Gillespie recommends it {Boston Journal, May, 1868).

Dr. Brakenridge, of Edinburgh, was one of the first to draw atten-
tion to the value of zinc oxide in infantile diarrhoea (Medical Times, i.,
1873), and I have, in common with many others, found it an efficient
and non-irritant astringent.

In chronic diarrhoea, and even in dysentery, the oxide has acted very
favorably (Bulletin de Therapeutique, March, 1877), but the sulphate has
more decided powers.

Bronchorrhcea. Excessive secretion from the bronchial tubes is con-
trolled by the oxide and by the sulphate of zinc (Barlow).

Hyperidrosis. I can entertain no doubt of the power of zinc oxide
to control excessive sweating in phthisis and other exhausting diseases,
although it has been denied by some observers. Dr. T. Thompson, one
of the first to record this effect, found it increased, as we should expect,
by conjunction of the zinc with henbane extract he prescribed 4 gr. of
each substance (Medical Times, i., 1854, p. 190); and W. Curran and
others have corroborated his observations (Lancet, i., 1854, ii., 1868). I
generally order 1 or 2 gr. of the oxide with the same quantity of extract
of henbane, to be taken at bed-time, and again in the course of the night
if necessary.

Epilepsy. The value of zinc salts in disorders of the nervous system
has been much disputed, some physicians, as M. Herpin, recording ex-
traordinary results from them, and others, as M. Gubler, denying to them
any power.

There can be little doubt that the high estimate formed by M. Herpin
of the efficacy of the oxide, and later of the lactate of zinc, in epilepsy, is
unfoxinded no other observer has verified his results at the same time
we cannot deny altogether their efficacy in some cases. Dr. Wilks has
seen benefit from the oxide (Medical Times, i., 1869, p. 84), and Dr.
Sieveking records successful results, though he does not value it highly.
Dr. Russell Reynolds has known it serviceable, and Dr. Radcliffe, noting
its effect in causing ana?mia, suggests that it might best be tried in- mark-
edly congestive cases (Lancet, i., 1863). Others have thought it more
applicable when the epilepsy was complicated with gastric disorder, and
others again have seen the best results from it when used in conjunction
with bromides or digitalis (Lancet, ii., 1868; Medical Times, ii., 1874, p.

Charcot has observed benefit from the bromide of zinc (British Medi-

ZINC. 313

cal Journal, November, 1877), but Dr. Gowers, in his recent lectures,
considers that salt of little value, and has found it badly borne. The
oxide, however, in his experience, proved sometimes useful, relieving
three cases out of ten submitted to it (Lancet, i., 1880, p. 553).

Chorea. There is much evidence as to the value both of oxide and
sulphate of zinc in this malady, more perhaps in favor of the latter; it
requires to be given in gradually increasing doses up to 15 to 20 gr.
(Barlow). In recording many cases, all of which derived some benefit,
Mr. Marsh, of the Children's Hospital, remarks that no definite indica-
tion for the sulphate could be verified, but that a harsh, dry skin became
soft during its administration (Lancet, ii., 1871); it was well borne. In
chorea affecting strumous children, I can speak well of the iodide of
zinc. Dr. Barlow was the first to recommend it (Medical Times, ii.,

Chronic Alcoholism. Dr. Marcet made many observations on the
treatment of this condition, and published a special essay to illustrate
the value of zinc oxide in controlling the unsteadiness and the tremor
which are its usual accompaniments (" Chronic Alcoholic Intoxication,"
London, 1860; Lancet, i., 1859). Dr. Anstie accorded some, but not so
much, value to the drug in the same conditions.

In Hysteria and Debility, if anaemia be not extreme, zinc salts often
prove useful, but more especially when combined with other nerve-tonics:
thus, Dr. Barnes speaks very favorably of zinc with phosphoric acid
(phosphate of zinc) (Lancet, i., 1858, p. 119), and has recently re-stated
his opinion as to its value in convulsive diseases of women (Lancet, i.,
1873, p. 621). Vigier finds the phosphide of zinc acts mo^e quickly than
phosphorus itself (Bulletin, January, 1876), and the valerianate, although
decried by many observers, certainly relieves in some cases. Zinc oxide
may be combined with camphor, galbanum, sumbul, etc.

Spasmodic Cough Asthma. Both the oxide and the sulphate of
zinc, especially in conjunction with belladonna, have been found to re-
lieve spasmodic cough, whooping-cough, etc. (Fuller: Lancet, ii., I860).
In the intervals of spasmodic asthma, they are given as prophylactics
(Symonds: British Medical Journal, i., 1868). The valerianate has been
successfully used for obstinate hiccough and for hysterical cough (G.
Harley: Medical Times, ii., 1863), but although of some value, is uncer-
tain in its action. In laryngeal spasm, sometimes, 5 to 6-gr. doses will
succeed when smaller ones fail (Medical Times, i., 1858, p. 475).

Nervous Headache Neuralgia. The valerianate is valuable in ner-
vous headache, and it is especially useful for cases of neuralgia con-
nected with uterine derangement.

Tremor. In tremor connected with mercurial and arsenical poisoning,
Gueneau de Mussy found phosphide of zinc effective (Lancet, i., 1876,
p. 208). I have tried it in the tremor of sclerosis, but without result.


Rheumatism. Among the rarer uses of zinc salts may be mentioned
that of the cyanide in articular rheumatism; it was strongly commended
by Luton, as relieving pain and lowering vascular excitement (Bulletin,
January, 1875). Other observers find it also of some, but not definite,
value; it is apt to cause headache (Medical Record, i., 1877).
