Mrs. T. Out-patient on and off since 1914.
In January, 1921, because she had had smallpox badly at 9 years old (some thirty years before) and was badly pitted, she got Variolinum 200 1 dose.
After a month. Looks quite different. Less deeply pitted. More colour. Variolinum 200 1 dose.
After 4 months. Looks V.M.B. Good colour. “You look very much better” “They all tell me that.”
Since then, at intervals, for various ailments, she has been given a dose of Variolinum: which has helped her.
Several doctors have seen her, and wondered. Her cheeks are almost smooth: and, at a short distance, one would not now notice that she had had smallpox.
M.H. A patient with cataract and glycosuria.
In May, 1926, the note is “Smallpox at 3 years old: is now 56.” Variolinum 200 1 dose.
This woman had several doses of Variolinum at long intervals.
The sugar varied: but a report, a few months later reads:
Wonderfully well: no thirst or hunger.
Says, eyes clearer.
Looks well: good colour: less pitting.
Says friends notice the change in her face.
Cheeks smooth now: “friends notice it.”
Another out-patient (for years under different doctors) for gastric troubles, retching, &c.
In March, 1928, when she was 55 (having had smallpox at 7 years old), she got Variolinum 200, one dose. This was repeated in July and Sept.
She said that she bad been very much better at once, from the first dose: “The medicine worked like magic on me.”
In one case, whose notes I have not found, after smallpox, some forty years before, when there had been abscesses in both nostrils, she had been unable for all those years to breathe through her nose-till Variolinum: which not only improved the unsightly deformity, but enabled her to breathe again through her nostrils.
