Okie moms knew way more than doctors.
Bad tummy? Dry toast and flat 7 Up if you were puking. Chicken noodle soup with Saltine crackers if not.
Fever? A cool, wet washrag draped over your forehead. An aspirin hidden in a spoonful of grape jelly. And a mug of honey & lemon juice in hot water.
Stubbed toe or other pavement-related wounds? Magical and painless Mercurochrome (Monkey's Blood) if the wound wasn't too bad, but the hideous, stinging Merthiolate if it was.
Stings and bites? A touch of Campho-Phenique for mosquito bites, and a dab of bluing for nasty bee stings and ant bites...
