-0: STOP SHAVING. There is a complaint known as Barber's Itch. It appears on the beard, and takes the form of a rash which soon begins to weep; the spots enlarge and increase in number; the matter that comes from one spot is infectious and starts another, and so on. It is best to refrain from shaving, in spite of the unpleasantness of appearing like Bill Sykes. The shaving with a razor irritates the skin and makes matters worse. Sponges, towels, handkerchiefs, shaving tackle, basins, are all a possible source of infection; the patient should keep every- thing he uses quite separate his shaving- brush should be burnt. It is impossible to cure this complaint under about ten days, or sometimes longer.
