PITIFUL SIGHT WITH ECZEMA
"A few days after birth we noticed
an inflamed spot on our baby's hip
which soon began spreading until
baby was completely covered even in
his eyes, ears and scalp. For eight
weeks he was bandaged from head to |
foot. He could not have a stitch of [
clothing on. Our regular physician
pronounced it chronic eczema. He Is
a very able physician and ranks with
the best in this locality, nevertheless,
the disease began spreading until
baby wa3 completely covered. He
was losing flesh so rapidly that we be-
came alarmed and decided to try Cuti-
cura Soap and Ointment.
"Not until I commenced using Cuti-
cura Soap and Ointment could we tell
what he looked like, as we dared not
wash him, and I had been putting one
application after another on him. On
removing the scale from his head the j
hair came off, and left him entirely
bald, but since we have been using
Cuticura Soap and Ointment he has
as much hair as ever. Four weeks ,
after we began to use the Cuticura
Soap and Ointment he was entirely i
cured. I don't believe anyone could
have eczema worse than our baby.
"Before we used the Cuticura Rem- |
edies we could hardly look at him, he
was such a pitiful sight. He would
fuss until I would treat him, they
semed to relieve him so much. Cuti-
cura Soap and Ointment stand by
themselves and the result they quick-
ly and surely bring is their own rec-
ommendation." (Signed) Mrs. T. B.
Rosser, Mill Hall, Pa., Feb. 20, 1911.
Although Cuticura Soap and Oint-
ment are sold by druggists and deal-
ers everywhere, a sample of each,
with 32-page book, will be mailed free
on application to "Cuticura," Dept.
