  • A tincture used as an antiseptic for cuts and scrapes. Generally known as “Methiolade�? (aka Merthiolate or Mercuricom), it came in a little brown bottle with a glass applicator that looked like a dropper. In fact, this product contained mercury and the highly poisonous bacteriostat ingredient, Thimerosal. It stained the skin a pinkish-orange and burned like the fires of hell. When this happend the parent would caution the child to "blow on it" which did not help.
