6 Best Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Cellulitis treatment

Homeopathic medicines for Celulitis

Cellulitis is a very common bacterial skin infection in which there is inflammation of skin and connective tissue. Cellulitis can occur on any part of the body but face and lower legs are the most common site for cellulitis. Homeopathic medicines for cellulitis treatment  are very effective in fighting out the bacterias without the using antibiotics .

Cause of Cellulitis

The main causative agents for causing cellulitis are Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphyloccus aureus bacterias. In healthy condition the skin act as a protective barrier against infectious agents, preventing their entry into the body. When the integrity of skin is broken due to various factors like insect bite, cuts, scratch marks, injuries, surgical incision etc, the bacteria gain entry into the body through this broken skin and leads to inflammation of skin and connective tissue. People with diabetes mellitus, suppressed immune system and venous stasis are more prone to cellulitis.

Symptoms of Cellulitis

The main symptoms of cellulitis include redness, swelling, heat and pain in the affected area. As the disease advances blebs and bullae appear on the skin. Blebs and bullae are fluid containing eruptions on skin. At this stage fever occurs. If the condition is not properly treated at this stage then it goes further deep into connective tissue and gains access to the lymph nodes. Then the infection spreads to blood leading to septicemia or blood poisoning which is a very critical condition.

Homeopathic Medicines for Cellulitis

Homeopathy medicines are very efficient in treating cellulitis. The medicines work wonderfully by increasing the immunity of patient thereby reducing the swelling, pain and burning in cellulitis condition.

    Dr. Sharma,

    My name is Dirk Baeuerle. Approx 2 months ago I had a bad poison ivy rash. The rash has disappeared, but in its place I have been dealing with a large area on my left leg where the skin is regrowing, but wound area is still draining. The area is approximately 8 inches high and covers the entire leg just above the left ankle. Do you recommend any homeopathic medicines to help with drainage and wound healing? I have been using hepar sulph calc 200c and arnica Montana daily. I also take vitamins c, e, and zinc daily. I am type 2 diabetic.

  3. Hi Dr, I have cellulitis in my right lower leg. The doctor give me antibiotics. This is the third antibiotics cure I am taking. The middle of my skin is num.

  6. hola doctor tengo 73 sños y en este año se me empesaron a poner las piernas rojas inchadas igual que los pies podria tomar belladona y calendula como pidoen la farmacia grcias

  7. My mother is 69 and had a double mastectomy 10 years ago where they also removed some of her lymph nodes in her armpit. Over the course of the past 10 years she has very rarely had episodes of cellulitis, however, in the past six months, she’s had cellulitis three times. Each time her doctor has given her a round of antibiotics which help ease the infection quickly. Unfortunately, it returns shortly after she stops taking the antibiotics. Her doctor is now urging her to take a daily antibiotic permanently. She knows that antibiotics harm the gut and does not want to be on them forever. What would you recommend as a treatment for this?

  8. Rajendra Ramnath Ankolap says:

      I had terrible case worsening each day from my right hand going up to my arm . it got redder, more swollen and painful by the day. I finished a course of antibiotics. That was almost 10 years ago! It never returned though my skin did have a different appearance from before. Just recently it has started to swell up again following a fall from my pushbike that irritated that part of my hand with some scratches and bruising. It did seem to be getting better though this morning I woke with the old previous swelling. I had no idea that it could ever return once it was treated and cured (I thought).

      I don’t think it currently appears bad enough to use antibiotics which I wish to avoid as I suffer with candida albicans poor immune system and liver disease. I would rather hope you may have a good natural remedy to use. I have so far used a tree tree compress which has helped give some relief with swelling. I hope you may be able to help em. Many thanks. Nicole

    I adored your content, the whole article is written very well. I have been searching for informative regarding the sleep subject and this really helped me. I have always struggled with getting a good nights rest I am not sure why either. Sleep supplements have always made me feel nervous as they can have side effects. Thank you again stay safe and wishing you a lovely day.

  11. Badlands Babe says:

    I’m so tired of cellulitis… I can never get my lower left leg to heal completely even when I think it’s finally healed. I’ve been battling it for 10 years. It’s already ruined my life. Knowing the discoloration of my lower leg will always remain is bad enough. I just want it to go away. I can go for months without any sores my skin of course I’m always applying coconut oil to because of the permanent inconsistency of texture & color. Then suddenly out of nowhere I will get a small sore. I will apply zinc and cover it. Eventually it will heal but this has been going on far to long. I’ve gone the whole urgent care route. Taken the antibiotics gotten the results they wanted. All that’s done is mask whatever is continuing to cause the problem. I have no idea how I got this crap in the first place?? I’m not only depressed about it but I’m angry. It’s prevented me from wearing shorts in hot weather, or skirts & dresses to functions I’ve had to attend. I really doubt you’ll take the time to answer but at this point I’ve got nothing to lose that I haven’t already lost. Unless someone has this they just can’t possibly understand.
    Thank you.

    A darkened skin area on lower legs,
    Blisters- some red, some under skin
    & barely seen,
    Constipation,
    Dry skin, though coffee & water are my
    normal bevrages
    Extreme itching,
    Fatigue,
    Irregular heartbeat,
    Occasional chills, short lived,
    Random stings,
    as if from a bee sting or, needle prick,
    Swelling in ankles-
    toward the end of the day.
    (I elevate feet @ night.)
    Trouble sleeping,

    Have been taking Colloidial Silver for 3 days.

    Thank you for your time.
