A diffuse inflammatory redness over the whole body, so that it was thought advisable to isolate the patient; in ten hours this redness had disappeared,


Smooth, bright scarlet eruption over whole body (face, limbs, etc.),

Four ounces of wine were sufficient to induce the chloral-rash (30 grains),

A scarlatina rash broke out over the whole body, accompanied by fever and tenderness of the skin, and was followed by desquamation,

The tendency which the use of Chloral produces to fluxionary hyperaemias, with increased and strengthened heart action, is first and most considerably manifested in the head, an intense erythema occurring, at first in spots, but afterwards more diffusely, and the vessels being dilated. In the more pronounced forms, the erythema extends downwards to the trunk, and becomes general, in which case it seems to follow, by preference, the course of the larger nerve-trunks.

Eruption on face erysipelatous, and face so much swollen that she could not see. Eruption lasted four days, *Eruption on arms and legs, exactly like nettle-rash, in large raised wheals, with intense irritative itching. (Twice, on repeating the dose, the identical symptoms returned),

Eruption on arms, legs, and face, and subsequently over whole body, in large blotches of different shapes, raised above the surface, and of a deep-red color. Gradually, these blotches coalesced, till the whole skin was in this red blotchy state, more nearly resembling measles than anything else,

Dark erythematous flush over head and neck, with extraordinary twitching of facial muscles,

First, erythema of the face, and later a papular rash on the arms, with red bases. In some, nettle-rash occurred (60 grains, daily),

Erysipelatous inflammation of the integuments of the fingers, with desquamation of the cuticle, and ulceration around the border of the nails (four cases),


Intense irritation and itching of skin, preventing sleep at night,
