Ask the Doctor: Department for Solving Your Health Problems – Strength Magazine – August, 1927

It is my desire this month to cover a popular subject in these columns. I say popular for the reason that I am literally “swamped” with letters seeking information on this particular subject; and regardless of the fact that we have covered this form of illness month after month in this department, the letters continue to pour in. Evidently those who read these pages cannot see any similarity in their case and the cases discussed herein. It seems to us, however, that no matter how similar two cases are, the stricken ones fail to realize the fact, even after reading the symptoms and treatment. In proof of this statement, we continue to publish pimple treatments at very regular intervals ; nevertheless, I receive dozens of letters weekly seeking advice on this distressing trouble.
