Doctors were additionally frequently urged to deal with infections like syphilis with mercury, a poisonous treatment, most definitely. These forceful "cures" of the brave time of medication were in many cases more awful than patients' infections; the people who conquered disease during the conflict owed their recuperations less to the resourcefulness of contemporary medication than to coarseness and possibility.
