Whitehead's varnish nasal pack

  • M Lim (a1), S Lew-Gor (a1), G Sandhu (a1), D Howard (a1) and V J Lund (a1)...

Whitehead's varnish is a little known but excellent nasal packing agent. We review available literature on the historical aspects and clinical use of Whitehead's varnish. Our personal experience with Whitehead's varnish is described, and we strongly recommend its use.
