LOCAL TREATMENT OF ACUTE RHINITIS WITH SULFATHIAZOLE

Abstract

Abstract During the last fifteen years of my practice as an otorhinologist I have tried to avoid as much as possible the use of snuffs or nose drops in the treatment of acute and chronic rhinitis. The theoretic argument for the use of these medicaments has been only a little convincing, and in general the therapeutic results have not been encouraging. As a rule, I have endeavored to combat nasal infections by entirely different methods and have made use of snuffs, nose drops and penciling of the nasal mucous membrane only on rare occasions. It was therefore after much hesitation that I persuaded myself to begin the insufflation of sulfathiazole into the nasal cavities in treatment of inflammatory conditions. However, since good results had been announced from so many quarters in the local treatment of infection with this agency, from which toxic effects were rarely observed, I at last overcame my References 1.
