The Feauer continuall.cap.41.

* Continuall Feauer commeth of hu∣mour rotted within the veines, of the which humour smoake commeth to the heart, & grieueth the heart, and brée∣deth in the bodye & Feauer that is cal∣led Continuall. Sometime this humour is simple, and sometime double Sim∣ple when bloud rotteth in the veins and bréedeth continuall Feuer, that is called Sinochus. And when it rotteth not, it creaseth in quantitie and is ouer set: and the fumosities that be moued and bra∣ten, bee made hot and distemporate and distempereth the spirit of lyfe. And there commeth the Feauer that is called Si∣nocha in flatiua swetting. And somtime Cholera rotteth in the most subtil veins of the mouth, of the stomack, of ye heart, of the liuer, & of the lungs, that is called Causen: for it burneth and kindleth the spirituall members. And sometime it rotteth in other veines, & is called Ter∣ciana, and continuall: and somtime Cho∣lera, & bloud rot togethers in the veines and pipes, and if the more part of bloud rot, then it is called. Sinocides. And if the more parte of Cholera rotteth, the Feauer is called Causonides. Then for diuerse causes bee diuerse signes of the feuer that be called Sinochides, these bee the signes and tokens thereof: The Feauer is continuall, and there is sharp ach of the forehead and temples, strong thirst, 〈…〉réetnesse of mouth, redde vrine and thicke, and some deale wanne The same signes almost be in the Feauer that is called Sinocha Inflatiua, except wannesse of vrine. Also the eien appere bolning outwarde, with fulnesse of veines, and rednesse of face, and heaui∣nesse of all the body. And in Causon, and in the other, the vrine appeareth redde, and subtill within, shaddowed with a manner of blacknesse with so great ach of the forehead and temples that the eien & the temples seeme as they were pear∣ced with nailes, with coulour in the bo∣die medled with yeolownesse. Thust ceaseth not, with steadfast waking, and toughnesse and burning of the tongue, with hard wombe: of Cholera if it haue a default in qualitie or in quantitie, then commeth the ••re of the wombe, & cho∣larike spuings and the same signes & to∣kens appeare in Causonide and Si∣nochide, and the diuersitie thereof is knowne most by vrine. In these conti∣nuall Feuers, that teme of bloud, & men shall be let bloud in both armes, if strength and age will suffer. The dyet of such shall bée scarse and elde, as crummes of bread washed in water, prunes sod; and such medicines as shall abate and chaunge the bloud, as a sowre siroppe of violet and other such Against accidents of these euills, as against 〈◊〉 a∣king and ach of the forehead. and other such, it néedeth most to take héede: Sometime this euill endeth with sweate healthfullye, and sometime with bleeding at the nose, or else where.

He that hath this Ague, a smokye house, a lowsie bed, & a curst queane,* shal not neede the Phisition, neuerthe∣lesse kepe good diet.
