Treatment by Contramine seemed to cut short the duration of pain and dry the lesions fairly rapidly. The response in older patients was less marked. Contramine did not prevent the full development of the lesions. No toxic effects were observed, with possible exception of nausea in the youngest patient of the Series. In only one patient was there post-herpetic neuralgia. In this case the lesion was very extensive, involving five dorsal segments.
