Discuss ways to treat the Black Death.  Do not just list ways.  Discuss how effective these treatments were in treating the Black Death.

    The methods at treating the black death were counter productive at best. The practice of lancing the boils on the infected persons body did nothing except infect the doctor that was trying to held him. The practice of sucking the infection out of a boil by using a straw of some kind also only infected the doctor with the black death, and did nothing to help the patient.

    they tried to cut the big sores that was all over there body but it just spreaded but it wasn't effective because when they cut the sores it just spreaded and it just killed them then.They also tried to do surgery but the bacteria just got all over there clothes and they toke there cloths in there house and the bacteria spreaded in there house.Also the priest tried to purify the air and it wasn't effective because it spreaded and got on the priest and he died to and however anyone who got around the people with the plague died to.

    They would try to treat the Black Death by cutting the big boils open, but that would just result in the doctors getting it. They would also stick a straw like tube into their bodies and suck out the blood of the patient, this didn't work because the person performing the act would catch it. They had no treatment cause they wasn't as advanced as we are today.

    Headaches were relieved by rose, lavender, sage and bay. Sickness or nausea was treated with wormwood, mint, and balm. Lung problems were treated with liquorice and comfrey. Vinegar was used as a cleansing agent as it was believed that it would kill disease. But bloodletting was commonly thought to be one of the best ways to treat the plague. They popped the boils with a sharpe object,and sucked it out with a straw. These treatments was effective, because just being around them would kill them. So most likely they would end up dying.

    People tried to cure the black death by cutting sores off and sucking the patients blood out through a tube and this would result in the person trying to cure the victim getting it. There was no effective way of treating the black death.

    They tried to cut open the boils but that would just lead to the doctors getting the Black Death. They also tried to stick a straw like tube in their wounds and suck out the bad blood, but that also resulted in the clean person getting it. There was no treatment to the Black Death because they wasn't as advanced as we are today.
