A short account of the itch, or a compendious treatise of the diseases of the skin, from the slightest itching humour in particular parts only, to the most inveterate Itch, stubborn scabbiness, and confirmed leprosy. Plainly describing their symptoms, nature, dependance on each other, original cause, and dismal consequence to the patients and their posterity, if neglected or mismanaged. Also the dangerous effects of quicksilver girdles, ointments, washes, and other pernicious mercurial-medicines. Discovering the true and only certain method of curing those distempers with safety, ease, and expedition, and without the use of dabbing ointments, brimstone, or other nauseous and ill-smelling remedies, confinement of the patient, disorder of the body, or knowledge of the nearest friend. The whole illustrated with several extraordinary cases, and very remarkable cures performed by the author, necessary to be read by all persons, but more especially those who are unhappily troubled with the itch, or any other cutaneous distempers.
