Remedies for Fleas and Warts
Scabies and growths of the skin of all manner, the same as insects and all low, crawling creatures, have been the bane of mankind since time immemorial. For he who wishes to protect his body, he must sleep less amongst cattle, at least once a fortnight wash himself in water or visit a bath, and expose his clothes to the sun. For water and sun drive away all ailments of the skin, whilst sickness does flourish where there is the filth and stench of the human body. Keep distance from vagrants and beggars, for it is they who are the greatest bearers of illness and they can easily infect you.
Take a new pot and grease it well with goat’s lard, and it shall draw all fleas into it or they shall congregate around it. You may also pour a decoction of wormwood in your hearth room. It is also said that fleas shall die when in your hearth room you boil wolf’s dung or wormwood with rue. But there is nothing surer than oft sweeping the floors of debris with a broom and every morn hanging and drying your bedding in the sun. It is likewise advisable to take a warm bath, but if the bath is not warm, then cold will suffice as well, and to have your clothes laundered and dried in the sun. If you follow these instructions, you are sure to rid yourself of fleas.
Take young dandelions and apply a thick layer of their milk to warts and they shall die. Or take groundsel (Lat. Senico) and churn it and mix it with liquid vinegar and apply it to warts. Or rub them oft with but salt and warm vinegar. Or take a grey-spotted Amanita mushroom and rub it on a wart. In all of these manners can you rid yourself of warts. You should not cut them off with a knife, nor should you burn them with a hot iron, for then they shall quickly return, and often in greater abundance.
