The act of scarifying. Also, a small incision, Am'yche, made into the skin with a lancet, bistoury, or scarificator, for different therapeutical purposes, - as to draw blood, or to discharge some effused fluid. When the scarifications are very superficial, and do not go farther than the skin, they are termed by the French, Mouchetures.
