Sprains and Bruises
Sprains and bruises, while not serious, are often very annoying. When the accident first occurs immerse the limb in cold spring water. This has a tendency to contract the small blood vessels and keep down inflammation. If, however, swelling has already set in, hot water should give place to cold, as hot as can be borne. A consistent application of hot water to a sprain or bruise will ordinarily cure it in a few days.
