Hexaphene gel is the perfect material for treating certain conditions. A mass of Hexaphene MA-22 placed inside a rubber or plastic stocking is all that is required for treating dropsical or edematous lower limbs. The limb will be thoroughly embalmed and dehydrated. The upper limbs may be treated by an external application of Hexaphene MA-22 covered with thin vinyl or saran wrap. MA-22 will hold the covering material securely intact permitting the body to be dressed over the treated area. There will be no odor or leakage. Traumatic conditions, cancer, gangrene, etc., may be effectively treated by a simple external application of MA-22.
