Th'-, gave baby a terrible lot of worry; h1, used I to rub and rub his head on the pillow until his head got quite sore. ,"We were advised to try some oint ment, of which we used a number of I pots, but, received very little relief from them. We were told the head would heal when the weather got cooler. Blaby's hea.l was awful to look at; in fact, we used to keep a silk bonnet on mors of the dlay ti cover these horrible lnkenr pa:rhes We, fortunately, saw an adverts),rment for Cuticura Remedies in tlh palle'. and cent for samples of the Cuticura Soap anl Cuticura Ointment. which we used accord ing to directions, and the result has been simply marvellous. We then purchased some more Cuticura Soap and Cutwura Ointment, and in quite a short time baby's head had lost all traces of th- horrible cezema. He is now completely cured. and baby can cet a decent rest now, as all thIe itchiness is all con". (Signed) Percy W. Curtis. Mayv 4,. 1914."
