SKIN

Skin

Early color of skin (after thirty-eight years),

Skin, pale soft,

Skin pale, dry,

The skin on the back of the hands was thin and glistening,

So full of Mercury, that putting a piece of brass in his mouth, or rubbing it in his fingers, it immediately became white like Argentum Metallicum silver, as if he had rubbed Mercury upon it,

Very great desquamation of the thickened epidermis of both legs; the scales are rather red; under them the skin has a dark-red pigmented look; formerly there had been numerous small ulcers on the legs, followed by this desquamation,

Fresh wounds healed very slowly,

Eruptions, Dry.

Papular eruption,

Feverish, eruptive exanthem resembling roseola, which began first in the throat and face, and from these parts spread all over the body (five or six days after appearance of other symptoms); in six days it disappeared without leaving any trace,

Papulous exanthema over the whole body, with nightly bone-pains,

Maculous, papulous, or even squamous eruptions; the latter especially in old people (on the chest, back, and scalp); the eruptions often appeared suddenly, lasted a few weeks and then disappeared, and then again returned,

Psoriasis in spots over the whole body,

Urticaria on the genitals and thighs, and in spots on the chest and abdomen, lasting two days,

Eruptions, Moist.

It is an erythema, upon which vesicles form, and pour out a thinnish, clear fluid. The vesicles are quickly broken, then contents desiccate, and the redness remains for a week or ten days. (It is clearly a local disease, and not a true eczema),

Erysipelas of the forearm; of the legs,

Eczema on the back, appearing in the form of vesicles as large as the head of a pin, with violent itching,

Eczema on the back of the foot,

Herpes oris,

Several ulcers with whitish-gray bases, bleeding easily, and exuding thin matter,

Serpiginous ulcers in the skin (after working several years),

On the face, eruption consisting of a tetter about the mouth and on the cheeks, with hard and very superficial ulcers,

Ulcer on the foot,

Small easily bleeding ulcers, of a dirty-white color, with livid borders, on the lips,

Varicose ulcers on the extremities were frequent; indeed it was an exception to find a worker free from them,
