    This is a need for anyones medicine box...Good for cuts, bruises, sprains, superficial burns, sore and tired feet and unexcelled for sunburn, Wow all that in one little bottle.
    I do not know for sure how we got this it is my husbands he has a whole box of old medicine and stuff like that.
    I was wondering if anyone out there knew if all these bottles were signed and where I could maybe find the value of this and someother medicines we have.. Also if anyone might know the year.
    Thank you.

      Is it a screw top? What are the markings on the bottom?
    2. alisha alisha, 13 years ago
      Yes this is a screw top and on the bottom it appears to be 12 a large 0 with something in the middle that I can not make out and a 4 then below them it has 13.
      When I looked in the box it was so need I found the paper with the directions on them and pictures of how to use this product. It also said four sizes ;89cents 60 cents 30cents and trail. This is really neat. It has never been opened.

      Thanks to VikingFan82 for input.

      This was a common antiseptic in the south in the 1950's My grandmother use to swear by it for cuts and as a mouth wash. It was originally produced during the civil war for battle field dressing. A version is still produced - google it.

      Could you send me the information on the back of the label, please?

      I remember that bottle well. Dr Tichenor's still used this bottle well into the 1960's. Dr. Tichenor's itself is still sold, although the label has changed. Seems to me one sold for around $20-$25 on Ebay fairly recently. If you are interested, I would be happy to make you an offer for it. I had one my great aunt gave to me, but it was stolen in NY City years ago, and I would like to replace it. I remember that bottle when I was a little boy, and my Great grandparents actually knew Dr. Tichenor when he lived in Liberty, Miss, before he went down to New Orleans. Some people say he was in Canton, Miss, but I do not think that is correct. If he was in Canton, it was not for long. I do for a fact know he was in Liberty, Miss, because my grandmother's family, the Dunns, knew him. MA Dunn, my GG grandfather, has his name engraved in the Confederate monument there.
