the strength of from 40 to 50 per cent. may be used; in
this manner it causes no irritation. In the ocular dis-
eases mentioned 2 per cent. solutions have been em-

recommended. In otitis 20 per cent., and in cystitis 4
per cent., solutions have been found of marked service.'

Physiological Action.-Small doses of antisepsin
cause in the lower animals a fall of the temperature
