Sub-nit. Bismuth, Oxide of zinc, 1878, Treatment of the Feet. Dr. Vieusse commends (Revue Medicale) frictions of the part with subnitrate of bismuth in powder. He has never seen any evil results following the rapid uspression of the hyperidrosis. Sometime the bismuth causes only temporary relief in hyperidrosis, but it cures permanently the bad ordor and the tenderness of the feet, which are the chief causes of complaint.
