TASTE DISORDERED or LOST.-Loss of taste is a frequent accompaniment of cold in the head, and it usually passes off with the cold. Indigestion is accountable for the bad taste that some people experience in the morning, and various other derangements of taste.
General Treatment.-When the taste is disordered great care should be taken with the teeth. They should be cleaned after each meal, or at least night and morning. All rich and fat food should be avoided. Medicines.-(Every few hours.)
