PINKHAM // MEDICINE COMPANY // MONTREAL P. Q. // FULL DIRECTIONS INSIDE // SOLD BY DRUGGISTS // The Proprietary or Patent Medicine Act. No. 57”; printed on the leaflet: "FOR LEUCORRHOEA // Lydia E. Pinkham’s Sanative Wash // LIQUID FORM // This valuable article has been on the market for the // last thirty years, and has been used quite extensively with // very beneficial results. The only objections to it has been // its form – it has always been put up as a dry herb-packet // which required steeping and straining before it could be // used. If any prefer this form, either because they // have become used to it or for any other reason, they can // still obtain it in the old style. // Apply once a day as a vaginal injection // (or douche) by means of any good fountain syringe. It // is best first to take a cleansing douche. // For this purpose // use warm water in which has been dissolved powdered // borax (one heaping teaspoonful to a quart of water), or //as much castile soap as you would use in washing, or // ”Paxtine” according to the directions on the package. // The Sanative Wash is useful not only in cases of grave // ailments, but is of great value to check slight disturbances // of the secretions, to which nearly all women are liable // at one time or another. // The discharge from the nose caused // by a cold in the head is familiar to all. it results from an // inflammation of the mucous membrane. But the mucous // membrane exists in other parts of the body, particularly // those to which the Sanative Wash is especially intended to // be applied, and is there liable to a similar affection by which // a similar discharge is occasioned. Whenever this appears, // it should at once be checked and prevented by the use of // the Sanative Wash. Just as a neglected cold in the head be- // comes chronic, taking the form of catarrh, so does this dis- // charge, which is known as Leuccorhoea, or more popularly // "the Whites." // There should be no delay in treating this discharge, as // besides uncleanness and discomfort the irritation caused by // it may bring about ulcerations and other serious conditions. // price, twenty-five cents per bottle. // LYDIA E. PINKHAM MEDICINE COMPANY. // LYNN, MASS."
