Hydrargyri Chloridum Mite. Also known as calomel. This mercury based drug was used to treat a variety of illnesses. It was used as a cathartic to promote vomiting. Calomel has been employed topically for various purposes. It has been snuffed up the nostrils in ozaena; blown into the eyes in chronic ophthalmia, with or without specks in the cornea; employed as a gargle, suspended in mucilage, in ulcers of the throat; introduced into the larynx, by inhalation, in chronic inflammation of that organ; injected into the urethra in gonorrhoea; and, in the state of ointment made with a drachm of calomel to an ounce of lard or simple ointment, used as a dressing for indolent or specific ulcers, and by inunction in chronic cutaneous eruptions. It has also been used for fumigation; and some prefer it for this purpose to any other preparation of mercury.
