Elizabethan Doctors

Elizabethan Doctors were covered head to foot, even wearing masks to prevent getting sick.

The Doctors wore long dark robes with pointed hoods, leather gloves, boots, and masks that looked like a birds beak which were filled with bergamot oil.

Amulets of dried blood and ground-up toads were worn at the waist. It was their custom to douse themselves with vinegar and chew angelica before approaching the patient.
