Increased secretion of saliva, general perspiration, or diuresis sometimes marks the cessation of the pyrexia.
During the next few days the animal will lose some weight and perhaps show a certain amount of pyrexia.
It was often present both in the initial paroxysm and in the relapse, but disappeared soon after the end of the pyrexia.
These changes are usually proportional to the degree of pyrexia which has been present during life.
The lysis, therefore, occupies usually a longer time than was required by the pyrexia in reaching its maximum.
The pyrexia may be divided into three periods, each having its own peculiarities.
It was accompanied by pyrexia, gastro-enteritis, deep-seated pains in limbs and body, and burning and pricking of the skin.
Salicylates are only of service during the exacerbations attended with pyrexia.
Consequently their exhibition was wholly empirical, and the one that subdued the pyrexia most promptly was given the preference.
The first sign of their occurrence is an attack of pyrexia, shortly followed by a painful swelling at the affected spot.
