Medicines for the Legs. A Medicine for a leg that is swollen, and is not red, but will pit after ones finger

Take Chickweed and Peillitory, of each an handfull, and instead of Vineger take dregs of Wine, and put thereto Sheeps tallow, a pound chopped, and Cows milk at your pleasure, and seeth them as before written, until it be soft, and bind it to the swollen leg.

Another for the same

Take a quart of red Wine, and crums of Rie bread, and seeth them together till it be like a plaister, as hot as you can suffer it lay it to the sore Leg, upon a fair cloth, and when that is done, take another; and so till you have taken four, and this will help you.
