Sulphur powder and tablets used to feature in many treatments from the past. The brother of one of my schoolfriends was given a course of sulphur tablets to combat rampaging teenage acne and then given carbon tablets to combat the evil smelling gas produced from his digestive system.

The barber I used forty years ago recommended a "spirits and sulphur" treatment for severe dandruff and scaly scalp.

Sulphur is used extensively as a dusting powder in horticulture to ward off all manner of attacks.

If you can find a veterinary surgeon with a long grey beard and a memory to match you have a very good chance of finding the information you seek. Most old vets, like most old doctors were also highly competent apothecaries.
Similarly a pharmacist of the old school was also a competent apothecary., being forced from necessity to manufacture his own remedies from cheap ingredients in working class districts to service the community.

Good luck!

How do you catch lames disease

Lyme Disease, (Borrelia burgdorferi).

If a tick bites an animal carrying the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, the tick can also become infected. The tick can then transfer the bacteria to a human by biting them. Ticks can be found in any areas with deep or overgrown vegetation where they have access to animals to feed on.

Prevent and treat bug bites

There's a reason that insects are called pests.But despite the itchy ,red bumps they leave behind,insects bites are usually mild and the itching goes away in a day or so,specially the bug bites come from mosquitoes or biting flies.On the other hand(legs,arm or toe.....),bees,wasps and fire ants tend to cause more irritation and can some time lead to bigger problems.
Bug bites can be avoided,or at least minimized,by following a few precautions for common out door pests.The first line to defense against to plan ahead-always evaluate your surroundings and prepare accordingly if you anticipate large numbers of insects.Its always a good idea to apply insect repellent with DEET or PICARIDIN.If you r concern about using chemicals, particularly around children,you might want to try lemon eucalyptus and citronella oils, which also work.
