before any really effective drugs were made ..Penicillin was it !   EVERYTHING else was ISOLATION .Don’t go out in public ,Don’t open your door your were quaranteened ! Forced by law to put a quaranteen sign on your door. Until any communical disease  was demed no longer  a danger.

THere were very few Dr.s available  most were drafted ..   DR’s told us how to treat  ourselves !  I learned something about medicine even at 7 years old.

WE learned to use SALT ,Boric acid, IODINE ,Peroxide to treat ourselves .Other than that Penecillin was what you used when all else  failed…

The DR made house calls for $3.00 and $5.00 if you needed a Penicillion shot.POLIO was a major worry until the SALK vaccine later on.
