After eight days, on waking in the morning, she discovered the upper part of her body covered with a rash, to which her attention was first directed in consequence of its incessant tingling and itching.

the itching, in short, was so urgent, that at first she could not possibly refrain from scratching, which afforded much satisfaction and relief for the time.

but, as the relief proved only temporary whilst the operation seemed greatly to increase rather than diminish the irritation, by producing a greater abundance of the eruption and increased redness of the skin, she was, therefore, afraid to indulge in it. When I saw her there was no eruption on the face, but it was slightly swollen, and exhibited merely patches of efflorescence or redness, without any thickening or elevation of the cuticle. On the forearm and hands the eruption, when examined, appeared to be of a mixed character, Usnea Barbata lichen and urticaria combined.

the lichenose or papular eruption (the papula about the size of a pin's head, and of a purple or dark-red color) was dispersed over the whole of the arms, back, and front, but thicker about the wrists and bindings of the elbows than anywhere else, in which place it was also clustered together in patches upon an inflamed base. The heads of numerous papulae appeared to have been broken off, and afterwards covered with a brownish incrustation, as if blood had first exuded and then become hardened.

The urticaria occupied principally the front of the arms.

the wheals or elevations were not very numerous or prominent, unless friction was had recourse to, by which they could be produced almost to any extent.

they were stated to come out and go in again, two or three times in the course of the day, and to be always very large and abundant in the morning.

the chest and around the waist were also said to be thickly covered, and the redness intense,.
