Knee, Swelling Of

 

-In general, swelling of the knee is due to Rheumatism, under which heading the treatment will be referred to. In children, swelling of the knee, when not due to rheumatism, is a symptom of disease of the bone or cartilages. It is often called White Swelling. This is a very serious disease, and demands great attention from the outset, as it may be arrested if taken at the beginning.

General Treatment.–The child’s general health must be attended to. It should receive generous diet, abundance of milk and cream, and should be given cod-liver oil,if it does not disagree. If possible, it should be sent to some dry, high-lying locality or chalky soil. It should be out in the air as much as possible, in a bath-chair or other easy carriage.

Medicines.–A dose of Sulph. 6 should be given night and morning for a fortnight, to be followed by Calcarea 6 given in the same way.
