I acquired a full bottle of KNOXIT Globules with the little black globules still inside. I am trying to find out what they were a remedy for.

Earlier examples of Knoxit indicate that the product was a remedy for Gonorrhoea and Gleet (urethral discharge). The globules were for internal use. There was also a Knoxit Liquid that could be applied externally.
