Something Better Phemerol, Topical

Description

Parke Davis collectible ink blotter from the 1940s advertising Phemerol, Topical. This is a germicide used to treat minor cuts, abrasions, and superficial skin infections. The advertisement notes that the 3% solution does not sting or cause pain but still is equivalent to a 7% tincture of iodine. Its ease of application is also lauded. The blotter has a date stamped on it which is smudged and illegible. The Parke-Davis identifier is bl 102-2.
