Nothing is easier to cure than a patch of ringworm situated on the body, but it is a very different matter when it exists on the hairy scalp. Then the treatment is, as a rule, most disappointing.

The role played by the fungi in this world of ours almost baffles any adequate conception; to them we owe beer, wine, vinegar, our very bread (in the form we use it), and- ringworm.

Ringworm is curable by its pathologic simillimum, here termed Bacillinum, in high potency, internally and infrequently administered.
