CAP. LVIII. De Taraxi, seu Conturbatione.
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, is taken for a swift Inflammation of the eye, being red and moist, but less grievous than Ophthalmia, proceeding from ex∣ternal causes.
If the heat of the Sun, or the fire, have caused this affect, then the Cataplasm mentioned in the latter end of the preceding Chapter cures it, if applyed thereto; also a Cataplasm of new drawn Cassia, is held by some to be excellent.
If winde, smoak, and dust have been the cause, Page 100 the eyes are to be washed with Milk blood-warm, and sleep to be taken thereupon.
If it happens by a blow or a fall, then blood ought immediatly to be drawn forth by opening a vein.
If from the stinging of a Bee, or Wasp, or Hornet; then Repellers ex albumine ovi, lacte mu∣liebri, &c. are to be imposed.
