Tuberculous dis-ease of this joint must be differ-entiated from infectious epiphy-sitis, in which prompt operativetreatment is indicated.

Back to my earlier vantage point away from the tourists area, I loved this step like formation of the thermal pools. Scientifically proven to cure many diseases, Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is Turkey’s foremost mineral-bath spa because of its natural beauty: hot calcium-laden waters spring from the earth and cascade over a cliff. As they cool they form dramatic travertines of hard, brilliantly white calcium that form pools. In this area, there are 17 hot water springs in which the temperature ranges from 35 °C to 100 °C. It is recognized as a World Heritage Site together with Hierapolis. The Hierapolis-Pamukkale (most of the earlier pictures in this album) was made a World Heritage Site in 1988.

The red bug buriesitself in the skin; the tick buries its head; the itch bug bores deep but thestraw parasite stays on the surface. A good bath and rub get rid of most ofthose that have not already turned loose. To grease with a mild sulphur ointment helps somewhat. If there ismuch itching a soda water bath followed by a zinc oxid ointment will help. Straw that has been exposed to summer heat or that has been cured out-side does not contain parasites. Probably an army in Mexico would not be troubled with this parasite.The troops in the state camps will suffer. This story concerns them. It also concerns some people who do not go to war. Farmers workingin grain fields suffer. Occasionally city people who sleep on straw mattressessuffer from it. In fact one of its names is straw mattress disease.
