CAP. XLVIII. De Hordeolo.
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, seu Hordeolum, is a small, hard, firm, and somewhat long tumor, like unto a Barley corn, especially when it comes to suppu∣ration, Page 88 having his matter contained in a little skin, growing in the outmost part of the eye-lid, where the hairs be, arising from a flegmatick humor thick and mingled with blood.
This Tumor is taken away by Barley masti∣cated, or chewed, upon an empty stomack, and so applyed; or by the bodie of a Fly (the head thereof being cast away) if it be rubbed there∣with.
Galen appointeth a Plaister of white Wax; And Avicen useth the blood of a Pigeon, or Turtle, and this Liniment: ℞ Olibani, myrrhae, ana, ʒ ii. ladani, ʒ ss. boracis, ʒ i. cum oleo lili∣orum, fiat linimentum.
