Application filed April 2,
To all whom it may comem: I ,/Be it known that I, CARL BEGKMANN, a citizen of Germany, and resident of New York city, in the county of New York and a State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Corn l'Plasters, of which the following is a specification.
' My invention relates to improvements in the class of corn plasters comprising an apertured pad contaimng medicament. and means to retain the pad upon the corn.-
An object of my invention is to protect the medicament in the pad'from ready access 18 of dust, moisture. and the atmosphere to retain the medicament clean, sanitary and from the effects of moisture.
A further object of my invention is to protect the wearing surface of the pad from dirt and moisture and to retain said surface sanitary and in proper condition for use.
My invention comprise'snovel details of improvements and combinations of arts 26 that will be more fully hereinafter set orth and then pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, where m Figure 1 is a perspective view of a corn plaster embodying my invention;
Fig. 2 is an edge view of Fig, 1 partly 1n section;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the pad;
Figs. 4 and 5 are views similar to Figs. 2 and 3 illustrating a modification; and
Figs. 6 and 7 are views similar to Figs. 1 and 2 illustrating a further modification.
Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding arts in the several views.
The numera 1 indicates the pad of the corn laster having an aperture containing a me 'cament 2 which may be of a plastic or wax-like nature of any well known character for the purpose:
The pad may be of felt or other material suitable for the purpose as well known, and its wearing surface ma be provided with an, adhesive material to st1ck to the corn as well known.
. 1, 2 and 4: the
In the form shown in Fi wearing surface of the pa 1s applled upon a protectin piece or strip of impervious material 3, w ch may comprise a paper strip 1919/ Serial No. 286,926.
having. one or both surfaces waxed or paraffined to exclude dirt andmoisture from the pad and medicament. An adhesive tape is indicated at l, which extends alon the surface of the impervious strip 3 an? over the pad, sa d tape adhering to said strip and pad .to retain the parts together ready for use.
I preferably apply to the wearing or adhes ve surface of t e pad a protecting layer of 1mperv1ous material 5, which may comprlse paper waxed or paraflined which will adhere to the adhesive surface of the pad to protect the same from dirt and moisture and render it sanitary. Said protecting layer 5 may be aperturedo sing the medicament 2 in the pad, as in i 1, 2 and 3 or may be non-perforate as in icated in Figs. 6 and 7. Sa1d layer 5 in Figs. 1 and 2 is retained against the impervious material 3 whereby said layer and the medicament are protected.
In. Figs. 4 and 5 the rotector 5 is dispensed with and the a esive or wearing surface of the pad is applied with the medicaringnt directly upon the impervious materla In Figs. 6 and 7 the impervious protectmg layer 5 on the pad is retained against a piece of fabric 6, such as crinoline, the tape 4 securing the pad and. the medicament upon the fabric 6, as shown.
The material 3 and 6 may be of suitable length and width respecting the pad to protect it, and-the tape 4 may be of suitable length, preferably extending on opposite sides of the pad, to be attached to the users toe when the pad is a plied over the corn with the medicament t ereover. The parts as set forth are assembled for shipment and sale. When the plaster is to be used the protecting strip 3 or 6 is removed from the ta e and pad, and the latter are applied over the toe and corn after the layer 5 has been removed from the pad. The pad and medicament will be in a clean, fresh and sanitary condition for application to the corn.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A corn plaster comprising an apertured pad containing a medicament, a strip of impervious material on one side of the pad protecting the latter and the medicament, and an elongated adhesive tape on the other side Q nmeeee of the pod projecting therefrom on opposite hesive tape upon seid pefi 'on the side opposides and a hering to the strip, said tape exsite the strip, said tape having free ends; exno tendingover the medicament. tendin on ogposite sides of said PM and 2.
