CAP. L. De Madarosi, seu Glabritie.

〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 is onely taken for the falling of hair from the eye-lids, by a flowing, of sharp humors: And where the hairs do simply fall away, and the utmost part, and banks, as it were, of the eye-lids are red like unto lead, the malady is called 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 But if the edges there∣of grow thick and hard in such manner that the hair cannot there be fastned, or pierce thorow, and that the eye-lids swell, and become shining, it is then called 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉.

Ma drosis, for the most part, invadeth the par∣ty after malignant Fevers.

Avicen useth the pouder of Mice-dung with Honey for the increasing of Hair: Also the fol∣lowing remedies have been often used with happy success. ℞ Olei lini, ℥ i. sevi hircini, pinguedi∣nis ursi, ana, ℥ ss. stercoris murium, dactylorum com∣bustorum, ana, ʒ i. stercoris hirundinis, ʒ ss. misce.

For the Crassitude or thickness of the eye-lids, Avicen commendeth a Cataplasm of Endive, oil of Roses, and the white of an Egg.
