AID TO RELIEF SYMPTOMS The itching and irritation of psoriasis · is readily relieved by Rcsinol Ointment, an old formula containing ingredients well known to physicians for their effectiveness. To get best results, wash off the scales with a pure, mild soap. Resinol Soap is gently medicated and free from excess alkali. Use it with warm water, then rinse and pat dry. Spread Resinol Ointment evenly over the surface, letting it remain for several hours duringthe day and overnight. Note how quickly its oily base enables the Resinol medication to soothe the angry skin. Even when the rash begins to fade, do not stop using Resinol too soon. The eruptions of psoriasis have ix tendency to recur. For this reason it is advisable to continue Resinol applications to soothe the irritation, as long as any trace of it remains. Get Resinol Ointment and Soap at any drug store. Sample free. Write Resinol, Dept. 19. Balto., Md.
