Homeopathic Medicines for Anal Abscess

Homeopathy has a very effective solution for cases of an anal abscess. With the use of these medicines, surgery can be entirely prevented to bring about effective recovery. Homeopathy medicines help relieve the pain of abscess and hasten the process of pus formation and its subsequent discharge.

It is used to treat an anal abscess and is considered in the first line of treatment in homeopathy. Myristica helps bring about speedy recovery from an anal abscess due to its tendency to hasten the suppurative process. It helps shorten the recovery period and resolve the problem quickly. Apart from an anal abscess, Myristica is also a top listed medicine for the treatment of anal fistula.

2. Silicea – Effective Remedy for Pus Discharges

Silicea is a natural treatment for treating many suppurative (pus-forming) conditions including anal abscess. It is considered in cases where pus discharges are present in cases of an anal abscess. The pus may be highly offensive in nature. Silicea helps bring about quick discharge of pus and clears out the abscess. Silicea is also used to treat indurations (hardness) that are left behind following an anal abscess (in some cases). This remedy also helps in cases of anal fistula where there is an offensive pus discharge. In such cases, the area around fistula opening is hard, swollen and bluish red.
