Homeopathy for Low Milk Supply During Breastfeeding

Low milk supply during breastfeeding means a mother is not being able to produce enough milk in a sufficient quantity needed to meet nutritional demand of her baby. It is also known as hypogalactia or hypo galactorrhea. Agalactia is a term used for absence or failure of milk secretion after giving birth. Homeopathy for low milk supply during breastfeeding uses medicines of natural origin that are very safe to use without any side effects.

Homeopathy for Low Milk Supply During Breastfeeding

There are few things that don’t point towards low milk supply as lay man may relate to from misconceptions. These includes – a baby is not getting enough if he is nursing frequently, if breast isn’t leaking milk, breast suddenly became softer, baby has increase frequency and lengths of feeding session, baby is fussy, if baby takes  bottle of formula milk even soon after nursing, when women do not feel a let down sensation or on pumping very little milk comes out. They are not related to low milk supply and are not valid ways to check if milk supply is low or not.

If a baby is gaining weight when exclusively breast fed then it means the milk supply is sufficient for his growth. Some of the actual signs that indicate that baby is not getting sufficient milk needed for growth are poor weight gain, not enough wet  diapers (less than 8 – 10 diapers) in a day, have signs of dehydration (like lethargy, dark rings around eyes, sunken fontanelle, yellowish urine), getting weaker, or signs of not growing well.

Causes 

It can firstly arise if breastfeeding is started late after childbirth. Next it can happen if the baby is not latching properly. It means the baby is not sucking properly to draw enough milk from the breast. If the breast milk is not removed time to time then its production reduces. Next it can arise if the baby is taking infrequent feeds or taking feed for a short time approx less than 5 minutes. This is because frequent extraction or draining of milk from breast boosts or triggers milk supply but allowing the milk to remain in the breast for long decreases milk supply. Use of pacifiers and supplementing feeding with infant formula milk unnecessarily in initial weeks also decrease milk supply. Starting breastfeeding as soon as possible after childbirth, making sure the baby is latching properly during breastfeeding, frequently breastfeeding around every 2 – 3 hrs during initial weeks, avoiding bottles and pacifiers in the early week can help in cases having above reasons. 

Premature birth, jaundice, tongue tie in baby also tend to decrease milk supply because with these conditions baby can’t suck properly leading to low milk supply.  

Other than above factors related to low milk supply are stress, exhaustion, not taking enough sleep, not drinking enough water, use of certain medicines (like zyrtec D),  use of hormonal pills, history of previous breast surgery, injury to breast, underdeveloped (hypoplastic breast) being underweight or obese, drinking alcohol, smoking and taking excessive caffeine.   

Apart from above there can be a medical reason which is causing true low milk supply. In such cases the medical reasons have to be treated to establish good milk supply. The medical reasons include hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), anaemia, post partum haemorrhage (Blood loss of more than 500 ml to 1000 ml of blood within the first 24 hours after childbirth), Hypopituitarism (decreased secretion of hormones by the pituitary gland), hyperprolactinemia (medical condition with deficiency of prolactin hormone). Prolactin is lactogenic hormone or milk hormone which is responsible for breast growth during pregnancy and for breast milk production after delivery for breast feeding the baby), recent mastitis (inflammation of breast), retained placenta, breast cancer,  pregnancy induced high blood pressure, insulin dependent diabetes which is poorly controlled.

13 Effective Homeopathic Remedies for Paronychia 

Paronychia is a skin infection around the nails at the point where the nail and skin meet. It can affect skin around fingernails or toenails. Iarises from a bacterial or fungal infection. This infection can occur suddenly and resolve in 2 -3 days (acute paronychia) or develop gradually and lasts for weeks (chronic paronychia). Homeopathic remedies for paronychia help reduce redness, swelling and pain, and are also effective for cases in which pus-filled eruptions have formed. homeopathic remedies for Paronychia

Causes

The main cause behind it is infection of skin around the nail. The infection can occur from bacteria or candida yeast. In some cases both these infectious agents together result in this infection. Mostly acute paronychia is caused by bacteria and the chronic paronychia by a yeast infection. The bacteria involved in it mainly includes staphylococcus aureus and streptococcus pyogenes. The bacteria tend to enter the area around the nail when there is some trauma, injury or damage to the skin in this area. The skin damage can occur from nail biting, picking or chewing the nails and a splinter. It can also get injured accidentally from some of the tools used for manicures. Cutting the nails very short also predispose towards this infection. People having hangnails or ingrown nails are also at risk of this infection. Hangnails refers to tiny skin which is torn and hanging loose around the nail either fingernail or toenail that carries a risk of getting infected. Ingrown nails is a very common and painful nail disease in which the corner of the nails mostly the toenail enters and grows into the skin.

Another risk factor is excessive exposure of hands to moisture (like in people who are working in water for long hours or who do repeated hand washing) and frequent contact of hands or feet with chemicals. This destroys the skin that surrounds the edges of the fingernail or toenail called cuticle. This favours an ideal environment for bacteria and yeast to multiply and cause infection.  People having diabetes and those with suppressed immune systems (drug induced) are also at risk of it.

Symptoms

In these cases redness appears on the skin around the nail. Swelling, heat, pain and tenderness of the skin around the nail is also present. This area can also be itchy.

Top 8 Natural Remedies for Homeopathic Treatment for Bruises 

Bruises refers to black or blue discolouration on the skin from an injury (like a fall or bump against something) that causes damage to small blood vessels in the skin. The blood that leaks from damaged blood vessels deposits near the skin’s surface causing blue, black spots. Bruise is also known as contusion and ecchymosis. When bleeding from ruptured blood vessels collects beneath the skin it is referred to as ecchymosis or subcutaneous bruise. If the bruise arises in underlying muscles then it is called  Intramuscular bruises. Bruises can be internal too that occur in deep tissues, organs and bones. Homeopathic treatment for bruises aids the healing of the ruptured vessels, reduce discoloration and manage pain, soreness and tenderness in these cases.Homeopathic treatment for bruises

Causes 

Bruises mostly appear from an injury; mainly blunt trauma like bumping by mistake against something (like a door, bed) or from a blow, fall or something hitting you. It can also arise in people who do intense exercise, or from sport injuries., car accidents, hypodermic needle injection and blood drawing. 

Next it can occur if a person has low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) or some bleeding disorder. 

First among these bleeding disorders is Von Willebrand disease. It is a bleeding disorder in which a person has a low level of a protein called Von Willebrand factor which helps in blood clotting. Due to deficiency of this factor the blood doesn’t clot well. In most cases a person having it is born with this due to an inherited abnormal gene which controls Von Willebrand factor. 

Next bleeding disorder is hemophilia. It is a rare inherited genetic disorder in which a person has a deficiency of blood clotting factors and a result the blood doesn’t clot normally. Persons with this tend to bleed for a longer time after an injury as compared to non affected persons. The sufferer also is prone to easy bruising and is at risk of bleeding inside joints (like knees, elbows, ankles) or brain that can be life threatening. 

Another bleeding disorder is Christmas disease. It is a genetic disorder in which the  body of the sufferer either has decreased levels of factor IX that helps in blood clotting or complete absence of it. It causes impairment in blood clotting. Prolonged bleeding from cuts, or after surgery , unexplained  bruising, blood in the urine or stool, bleeding in joints are some of its signs.

Other than these deficiency of clotting factors II, V, VII and X (that helps in blood clotting) can lead to bruising. 

Other reasons are leukaemia (blood cancer in which WBC’s I.e. white blood cells in the bone marrow goes on multiplying out of control), ankle sprain, muscle sprain, deep vein thrombosis. Some medicines that make the blood thin like aspirin also can lead to bruises. Deficiency of nutrients including vitamin C, B12 and folate are also linked with frequent bruisings. Some people are naturally prone to get bruises easily. Females are more at risk for bruises as compared to males. Bruises also tend to be more common in elderly people because with age skin gets thin and the tissue that supports the blood vessels also become thin and prone to break easily and capillaries under skin get vulnerable to rupture.

Symptoms 

Initially, skin discolouration appears in case of a bruise. The colour depends upon if it is fresh or if it is under the healing process. Firstly, it is reddish and then it turns bluish, purplish or blackish in some hours. Following it the bruise becomes yellow, green or yellowish brown after a few days. Initially it is red because the blood seeped out is fresh and rich in oxygen. Later its colour changes because pooled blood starts to lose its oxygen and eventually from the by-product compounds that appear from breaking of haemoglobin. 

The bruise can be painful and tender to touch. Small bruises are not dangerous and tend to heal easily in a few days. But sometimes bruises can be serious. In some cases bruises can be present in case of fracture needing urgent attention. Sometimes bruises may be indicative of severe internal bleeding that also need urgent medical help. Blackish bruises on the leg may sometimes point towards DVT that can be life threatening. In DVT a blood clot forms in a deep vein usually in the vein of lower legs causing swelling, pain, redness and heat. This clot carries a chance to get detached and travel through blood circulation to the lungs which can be life threatening if not immediately attended.

Excessive swelling around the bruise, numbness of arms / legs, where fracture of bone is suspected, when it occurs without any reason, when they are recurring without any reason, when they don’t heal in a  few weeks (around 2 weeks), when they keep growing, when they appear on abdomen, back or face, if a lump (hematoma) form over the bruise and when attended with vision impairment or bleeding from nose or gums or with blood in urine / stool are some of the signs that can be indicative of serious conditions needing immediate medical help.

Homeopathic Treatment for Bruises 

Homeopathy offers a very effective treatment for cases of bruises.  These medicines can be used independently in mild to moderate cases. But in case of severe cases these should be used along with conventional mode of treatment as a supportive help.

Causes

The most common cause of tendinitis is repetitive movement of a tendon that develops over time. Repetitive movement of particular tendon can occur in persons in some job or in playing sports, or those having some hobby that puts extra stress on the tendons and results in inflammation. The risk for tendinitis increases if a person use improper or incorrect technique in repetitive movements. Other than repetitive movement, tendinitis can also occur in elderly people (because in them tendons become less flexible making it prone to get injured easily) and as a result from an injury. Persons who participate in sports like tennis , golf, baseball, running are at high risk to develop tendinitis. People having a job profile that includes tasks requiring repetitive motions of a certain tendon are at risk. Medical conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes also increases the risk of tendinitis. Lastly use of some antibiotics (like quinolones) also predispose towards inflammation of tendons.

Symptoms

Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Testicle Pain

Testicles also called testes is a pair of oval shaped reproductive organs in men. These are enclosed in a sac of skin called scrotum and produce sperms and male hormones. Homeopathic medicines for testicle pain help in providing relief from pain by targeting the root cause behind it.

Pain in testicle (Testicular pain) is the pain which is felt in or around the testicle. It can be in one or both the testicles. The pain may be accompanied with swelling and enlargement of testicle. Sometimes a lump can also be felt in the testicle. 

Homeopathic Medicines for Testicle Pain

Causes

It can arise from various reasons such as trauma, blow or injury to the testicles.

It can also  arise from Epididymitis. It is an inflammation of the epididymis (coiled tube at the back of the testicle in which sperms are stored while they mature and then carried from the testes to the vas deferens). It is mainly caused by sexually transmitted infections (like chlamydia, gonorrhea) and also infection of urinary tract or prostate .

It may be caused by Hydrocele, which is swelling in the scrotum due to collection of fluid in the sheath that surrounds testicles. 

Testicle pain can also be caused by Diabetic Neuropathy that can damage the nerve that supplies the scrotum. 

Inguinal Hernia can cause testicle pain. Inguinal hernia refers to a condition in which the fatty or intestinal tissues from abdomen protrude through the inguinal canal. The protruded intestine can sometimes push into the scrotum causing pain and swelling in the testicle. 

Other than above causes, it can arise from orchitis (inflamed testicle), varicocele (abnormal enlargement of the veins within the scrotum), spermatocele (build up of fluid in testicle) and testicular tumor. It can also arise from undescended testicles. 

Testicular Torsion (rotation of testicle occurs resulting in twisting of the spermatic cord that brings blood to the scrotum) is another cause. It is a serious medical condition causing severe and sudden pain in testicle. It requires urgent medical treatment because it causes blood supply to the testicles to cut off which can result in permanent damage to the testicular tissue if not attended immediately. Lastly, this pain can occur from urinary tract infection or kidney stones.

7 Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis

Thrombosis refers to the formation of blood clots in a blood vessel (either in an artery or a vein). When it forms in arteries, it is called arterial thrombosis. In this case, blood supply to tissues is obstructed leading to damage of the tissue supplied by that particular artery. When a blood clot forms in a vein, it is called venous thrombosis. In such cases the part of the body affected gets congested. There is always a chance that the blood clot or a part of it can break and be carried to some other distant part of the body through circulation. Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis play a supportive role in managing its symptoms, they can be used along with conventional medicine for symptomatic management and gradual recovery.

Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis

Causes

There are three factors that play a role in it. They include hyper-coagulability/thrombophilia, injury to endothelial cells of the blood vessel and disturbed blood flow. Hypercoagulability refers to increased susceptibility or tendency of blood to thrombose. It can be from genetics or some autoimmune disorders. An injury to endothelial cells of the blood vessel can result from surgery, trauma and an infection. 

There are certain risk factors that increase one’s chances to get thrombosis. The factors that increase risk of venous thrombosis are family history of blood clot in vein, injury to vein, immobility after a surgery, being overweight, smoking and having inherited blood clotting disorders. Additionally, females during pregnancy and those taking birth control pills/hormone therapy and elderly people are at risk of venous thrombosis. If we talk about risk factors for arterial thrombosis, it includes family history of arterial thrombosis, hypertension (high blood pressure), increased levels of cholesterol, obesity, smoking, diabetes, sedentary lifestyle, elderly age and immobility as after surgery.

Symptoms

It depends on which blood vessel (artery or vein) of the body is involved and to what organs it supplies blood or collects blood. Some of the main types of arterial and venous thrombosis are as follows with its signs and symptoms:

Venous Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is the condition in which a blood clot forms in a deep vein mostly in the vein of lower legs, thighs or pelvis but it can also form in the upper limb.  Swelling, pain, redness and heat in the affected part occurs. It carries a risk of a very serious complication called pulmonary embolism. In this case, the blood clots from the vein mostly from leg breaks and travels through blood circulation to the lungs. It blocks one of the pulmonary arteries of the lungs which is life threatening if not treated urgently. In this case shortness of breath, chest pain and cough appears. Some other symptoms like dizziness, rapid heartbeat, profuse sweating, discoloured skin and swelling, pain in the leg can appear with this.

Portal Vein Thrombosis causes a rise of pressure in the portal vein system and decreases blood supply to the liver. The Portal Vein  carries blood  from the stomach, spleen, pancreas, and intestines to the liver. People with cirrhosis of liver (severe scarring in liver), other liver disease, inflamed pancreas, and those predisposed to develop clot can get this condition. The signs and symptoms that can occur in this condition are pain in upper abdomen, swollen abdomen, fever. In severe cases the spleen can get enlarged, varices in the esophagus or stomach can develop that can lead to bleeding (vomiting of blood, bloody stool), liver pain and jaundice can occur.

Budd-Chiari Syndrome is a rare condition that mostly arises from a blood clot that narrows or blocks the hepatic vein or the hepatic part of inferior vena cava. The signs and symptoms depend upon the severity of the condition. It includes pain in abdomen, weight loss, ascites (build up of fluid in abdomen), gastrointestinal bleeding, enlarged liver, jaundice and enlarged spleen. 

Renal Vein Thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot develops in the renal vein  (that drains deoxygenated blood from the kidneys). It is not a common condition but can cause serious kidney damage. Reduced urine output, pain in lower back, blood in urine, fever, nausea and vomiting are its signs and symptoms. There are also chances of breakage of this clot that can travel to lungs.

Jugular Vein Thrombosis is very uncommon. It can occur from infection, cancer and intravenous drug use. Jugular veins are the veins that bring blood from head and neck to heart. Clots in this vein are often associated with prior venous catheterization at that site. 

Paget-Schroetter Disease, which is also called upper extremity DVT in which blood clot forms in the deep vein of arms. It is a rare type of DVT that mostly occurs in young persons (men are more affected than women with this) after intense exercise or sports activity involving upper arms. Symptoms include pain, swelling, warmth in the arm along with redness or blueness.

Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis is an uncommon type of stroke arising from blood clot blocking the dural venous sinus. In this symptoms that occur include pain in head, vision problem and weakness of face or one side limbs, difficulty speaking and seizure (fit).

Retinal Vein Occlusion occurs when blood flow to a central vein of retina is blocked from a blood clot that can cause critical vision issues. In this glaucoma or detachment of retina can occur.

Arterial Thrombosis

It is also called atherothrombosis. It mostly appears after rupture of fatty deposits in the wall of the blood vessel. 

Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) is when coronary arteries of the heart get blocked with plaque (made of sticky fat, calcium on which  blood cells called platelets  stick and clump together to form blood clots).  This can hinder blood flow to the heart and needs to be treated promptly to prevent permanent heart damage. Its symptoms are pain in the chest felt as tightness, a squeezing sensation or pressure that mostly radiates  to the left arm, shortness of breath, sweating, anxiety, fast heartbeat, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.

Thrombotic Stroke is classified as a medical emergency. In this a blood clot cuts off blood flow to one of the arteries of brain arteries leading to death of brain cells of that part where blood supply is blocked. The signs and symptoms of stroke are weakness/numbness or paralysis of arms, face, legs, problem in speaking, blurred vision, difficulty in walking. 

Limb Ischemia occurs when a blood clot in limbs causes hindrance in its blood supply. Its symptoms are pain, abnormal sensation in limb. The limb is pale and is cold to touch. In late stages numbness is there. Gangrene (death of tissue cells) from loss of blood supply can occur.

Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis

Homeopathic Medicines for Thrombosis play a supportive role in managing its symptoms. One can use these medicines along with conventional medicine for symptomatic management and gradual recovery. It is to be noted that thrombosis can have serious consequences so any homeopathic treatment should be started after detailed case analysis. In acute conditions where the symptoms are indicating risk of serious issues like heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism etc, it is strictly advisable to take immediate help from conventional mode of treatment. Homeopathic medicine should be preferred for mild to moderate cases with small sized clots and when there are none of the symptoms that indicate any medical emergency. They can also be used to manage residual symptoms that remained after acute condition but that too along with conventional medicines. Following are some of the well indicated homeopathic medicines for blood clots but any of these medicines should be taken after consulting homeopathic physician and self medication should be avoided.

Blocked or clogged ears is a very common problem in which a person feels congestion or fullness in the ear commonly attended with difficulty in hearing. People may also describe it as pressure in ear or fluid sensation in the ears.

Homeopathic remedies for blocked ears

Causes

Firstly, it can be caused by excessive ear wax. Normally wax is soft and plays a protective role by preventing debris from entering the ears. If the ear wax hardens or if it is over produced then it can cause plugging of the ears. 

Eustachian tube blockage is another cause behind clogged ears. Eustachian tube is a tube that connects the middle ear to nasopharynx. It helps to drain fluid and mucus from the middle ear into the throat from where it is swallowed. It also functions to equalise the pressure between the middle ear and surrounding atmosphere. If the eustachian tube gets blocked then mucus and fluid can’t drain and remains in the middle ear resulting in blockage. This tube can be blocked from nasal allergies, common cold and sinusitis. 

Fluid accumulation can occur in the middle ear (glue ear). People who have nasal allergies and those prone to ear infections are at risk of this. 

Ear infection from bacteria/virus can cause blocked ears. These include outer ear infections (otitis externa) and middle ear infection (otitis media).

Ear blockage can temporarily occur in some people during airplane journeys or driving hilly mountain areas due to sudden atmospheric pressure change outside the body.

It can also occur from a foreign object in the ear which is common in children and  toddlers who may have inserted a small object into the ear.

Meniere’s disease is an inner ear condition having a triad of symptoms that includes vertigo, tinnitus (noises in ear ) and hearing loss. In this feeling of fullness in the ear or plugged / clogged sensation in the ears can attend above symptoms.

Acoustic Neuroma is a benign(non cancerous) tumour that develops on the vestibular nerve leading inner ear to brain. When it is large it tends to put pressure on the nerve of the inner ear leading to clogged ear, hearing loss, noises in the ear, dizziness and balance issues.

Symptoms

Blocked ear is a symptom in itself and can be caused by various conditions. Depending on the cause behind ear blockage various symptoms can attend to it.

Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Geographic Tongue

Geographic tongue is an inflammatory condition of tongue in which island-shaped patches appear on the tongue which give the tongue a geographic or map-like appearance. It is a harmless condition and doesn’t indicate any serious issue and does not cause any health problems. It is also not contagious hence it doesn’t spread from one person to another through direct contact. Homeopathic medicines for Geographic Tongue are highly effective, they help to reduce the size of present patches in such cases and also halt the further progression of this condition.

Normally small papillae (tiny raised projections) are present on the upper surface of the tongue that gives it a rough texture. These papilla increase the surface area of the tongue and also increase contact area  between the tongue  and food. Taste buds cover the surface papilla  which help in taste perception. These papillae are of four types (fungiform, filiform, foliate, and circumvallate) that vary in location and shape. While in case of geographic tongue the smooth, bald, red patches that appear are actually from absence of these papillae. These patches look like a map giving it the name-geographic tongue.Homeopathic Medicines for Geographic Tongue

Causes

The exact cause behind it is not clearly known. However, some people are predisposed to develop it more than others. Persons who have a family history of this condition are at risk pointing towards links with genetics. People having certain diseases and conditions are at more risk to develop it. 

First among these is psoriasis (It is an auto-immune skin disease in which there occurs inflamed red patches on skin covered by silvery white scales on it. It is thought that geographic tongue is a type of oral form of psoriasis). 

Another medical condition linked with it is Lichen Planus (It is a long term inflammatory condition of the skin and mucous membranes of an autoimmune origin. On skin it presents as purplish, flat-topped papules with white, lacy lines. In the case of mucosal lichen planus white patches having lacy net-like patterns appear mostly though ulcers or red irregular patches can also develop. 

It is thought that geographic tongue may be a type of lichen planus (affecting tongue). Though psoriasis and lichen planus are linked with geographic tongue, more extensive research is required to know the exact link between them. It is also found that people having this condition may have an accompanying complaint of fissured tongue (a benign condition characterised by presence of deep grooves on the tongue). 

Other than these, deficiency of Vitamin B2 is linked with this. Lastly this condition may occur during pregnancy due to a lot of ongoing hormonal changes. It is to be noted that this condition is not associated with any infection or cancer. This condition can affect people of any age group but mostly it affects young adults. Women are more affected with this condition as compared to men. It can worsen during some sort of psychological stress.

Symptoms

In case of geographic tongue uneven, red island-shaped patchy lesions appear on the tongue. They can appear on the top or sides of the tongue. These patches are smooth due to loss of papillae. The red patches may have a white or light coloured border. These can vary in size from case to case and the shape is also variable. The size and shape can also vary among the same person at different times. The patches heal in one place followed by migration to another area of tongue in a few days or weeks. This is why it is also known as benign migratory glossitis.  

In many cases no symptoms appear and only the patchy lesions are present. While in some cases pain and burning sensation can be present in the lesions. These can also be sensitive to spicy or acidic foods, toothpaste, mouthwash or cigarette smoking. This condition can continue for months to years and clears on its own. This can then reappear some time later in life.

10 Effective Homeopathic Remedies for Recurrent Abscess in Axilla

A skin abscess refers to a painful pus filled lump under the skin surface. The abscess contains pus, bacteria and debris. In case of abscess in the axilla, such lumps form under the skin surface of the armpit. Armpit is one among the common locations for formation of abscess in addition to other common sites including skin area around the anus, around a tooth, groin (crease formed where thigh and  abdomen meets) and over tailbone (pilonidal cyst). Homeopathic remedies for recurrent abscess in axilla can benefit people having complaints of recurrent abscess in axilla.Homeopathic Remedies for Recurrent Abscess in Axilla

Causes

Majorly, abscesses form due to infection from bacteria most commonly staphylococcus aureus. This bacteria can enter the skin when the normal skin barrier of the armpit is broken as from a minor skin wound like a little tear / cut or puncture in it. Our body’s disease fighting mechanism starts to work towards killing this bacteria with white blood cells. This causes swelling and inflammation at the infection site from where bacteria entered the skin. Following this a cavity forms leading to origination of an abscess which contains pus formed of bacteria, dead tissue and white blood cells. The main purpose of formation of cavity by body is to contain the bacterial infection to only the area of its entry and prevent its spread to other body parts.

People who sweat excessively in the axilla and don’t clean the area in a good manner have more chances of getting this infection.
Additionally, poor hygiene and not washing armpits regularly results in piling up of dead skin cells that remains another risk factor for an infection.
Other than this, frequently shaving the underarm area is also a risk factor. Blockage in the sweat gland, oil gland (sebaceous gland) or a hair follicle also carry chances to form an abscess. Sometimes they can form after a surgical procedure also. Around 10% of the people who have abscess in axilla carry a chance of its recurrence. Firstly, a weak immune system raises risk of bacterial infection and recurrent abscess.

Next, people having some medical conditions I.e. diabetes, eczema and allergies are more predisposed to have repeated abscess formation.
