For the treatment of quinzy, we find argemonia1 recommended, in wine; a decoction of hyssop, boiled with figs, used as a gargle; peucedanum,2 with an equal proportion of sea-calf's rennet; proserpinaca,3 beaten up in the pickle of the mæna4 and oil, or else placed beneath the tongue; as also juice of cinquefoil, taken in doses of three cyathi. Used as a gargle, juice of cinquefoil is good for the cure of all affections of the fauces: verbascum,5 too, taken in wine, is particularly useful for diseases of the tonsillary glands.
