Homeopathic Treatment of Felon

A felon is the formation of an abscess on the distal part of the finger of the hand, on the side of the palm. Felon usually occurs as a result of a bacterial infection, but can also be caused by a viral infection. A herpes virus known as herpetic whitlow causes the viral infection.

Felon homeopathy

A felon on the hand, on the side of the palm.

Very rarely, fungi may cause felons. Felons are one of the most common types of hand infections. In a majority of the cases, felons affect the index finger and the thumb. Homeopathic medicines treat felon very effectively and can help avoid surgical incision and drainage of the infected part. The top homeopathic medicines that are used to treat felon include Silicea, Myristica Sebifera, Hepar Sulph, Apis mellifica, Fluoric Acid, and Tarentula Cubensis.

The most common bacteria that causes this infection is Staphylococcus Aureus. A cut, or a punctured wound as from a splinter, a nail or a pin near the fingertip usually allows the entry of bacteria.

Homeopathic Treatment of Felon

Felon can be excellently treated with homeopathic medicines. These medicines boost the self-healing mechanism of the body to fight the infection and ensure natural healing. With the use of homeopathic medicines, the pus in the felon gets discharged. Alongside that the redness, swelling, pain, numbness in the felon gets relieved. Use of the homeopathic medicines in the very beginning of a felon infection can prevent the complications associated with it. Remedies like Silicea, Myristica Sebifera, Hepar Sulph, Apis mellifica, Fluoric Acid, and Tarentula Cubensis are anti-suppurative remedies that treat the felon and cause no side effects. Depending on individual symptoms, the prescription may vary from case to case.

Clinical Features of Felon

A Felon presents as a pus-filled pocket (small abscess) at the fingertip. There may be a discharge of thick white pus from the felon. The fingertip affected becomes swollen and red. It can also be hot to touch. Pain in the affected fingertip is present which is usually of throbbing nature. The affected finger area may also be extremely tender to touch.
In some cases, the affected finger may become numb. In case a felon is not appropriately treated the infection can spread to the flexor tendons and the bone (causing osteomyelitis). Untreated, it also carries a risk of permanent damage to the finger due to reduced blood circulation from compression of the blood vessels.

    I had paronychia and thinking there may be pus in it i put a pin inside, because of which it turned into felon. Two months of homeo treatment has not helped. The finger has changed colour and bending the finger at the joints has become difiucult and it seems blood supply to the finger has reduced as the finger has changed colour and the area below the nail appears white. Then I went for allopathic treatment which has improved the condition to some extent. But there appears to be an abcess with water like substance inside in the part of the finger below the nail. Please suggest medicine for absorption of this fluid into the body and restoring the texture.. Please also suggest medicine for improving the condition of the finger.

    Hello Dr. Sharma, tried many times to call, left message, but not return. Finger condition was Finger Felon. Now it appears to be on of “Finger Tendon Sheath Infection,” because infected, swollen index finger will not bend.

    Can “Myristica Sebifera” still help condition now? Currently using Colloidal Silver–Tea Tree Oil-DMSO- Emu Oil solution.
