A sort of partial bathing, by the application of cloths which have been previously dipped in hot water, or in some medicated decoction. They act, chiefly, by virtue of their warmth and moisture, except in the case of narcotic fomentations, where some additional effect is obtained. A dry fomentation, Fomentum siccum, Lectulus medicatus, is a warm, dry application to a part;- as a hot brick, wrapped in flannel; - a bag, half filled with chamomile flowers made hot, &c.
