ECZEMA SKIN DEEP NOT
Skin Diseases Can Be Cured
Only By Treating The Skin.
It is useless to (try 'to cure skin di
sease by pouring vile, poisonous drugs
into the stomach this has been proved
by years of studying and experiment
ing by the world's greatest scientists
and specialists in cutaneous diseases.
When It was proved that skin di
sease was in the s&in only and not it
the blood, attention, was immediately
given ' to discover a remedy that
woald core the disease by external ap
plication. Years were spent in study
and experimenting, bnt finally Dr.
Decatur D. Dennis, a skin specialist,
of wide reputation, compounded a
remedy cossisting of purely vegetable
ingredients and as clean and pleasant
to use pure water. This instantly
gave relief and quickly eared the
worst oases of skin, disease. This
remarkable remedy is called D. D. D.
Prescription and the secret, of its
success is that it gets at the seat of
the trouble, immediately killing the
germs thst cause the disease, and
leaves ths skin soft and clean, the
disease completely cured
Z "I had eczema and tried three doc
tors for six months'," writes F. R.
Tesar, banker aud oity collector of
Hopkinson, la. "They did me no
good. I wrote for a sample bo' tie of
D. D. D. and started to use it. My
face and moustache were all full of
the disease. The sample did me good
and I wrote for a dollar bottle, and
now my face is smooth as a baby's.
My bead was full of daudruff aod al
ways itched, my hair was ooniing out
but has stopped now. This has all
disappeared and I feel 20 years young
er. I would not be afraid to guaran
tee!). D.D. to cure eczema and dand
