Another method of cure:-Having got the anus to protrude as much as possible,
foment with hot water, and then cut off the extremities of the hemorrhoids.
But this medicine should be prepared beforehand, as an application to the
wound:-Having put urine into a bronze vessel, sprinkle upon the urine the
flower of bronze calcined and finely triturated; then, when it is moistened,
shake the vessel and dry in the sun. When it becomes dry, let it be scraped
down and levigated, and apply with the finger to the part, and having oiled
compresses, apply them, and bind a sponge above.
