Treatment.—­An active purgative should be given at once and in the ordinary case, stimulants are indicated.  If marked distress is present, morphin is given and where there is much rise of temperature, cold drinking water is offered in abundance and catharsis is enhanced by enemata.  Locally, hot applications are of benefit.  Hot towels or cotton held in position by bandages and kept soaked with warm water will relieve pain and stimulate resolution.  Diuretics may be of benefit and anodyne applications are to be employed with profit in some cases.  Walking exercise, if not indulged in to excess, is helpful as soon as acute inflammation has subsided.  By giving careful attention to the regimen and providing regular exercise for susceptible subjects, this type of lymphangitis is often forestalled.
