Carbuncle -Homeopathic Treatment , Medicines and Remedies – Drhomeo

Homeopathic Treatment for Carbuncles

Carbuncle is much more than just a simple abscess, boil or furuncle. It occurs when multiple hair follicles gets infected. It is usually deep and forms a lump. Homeopathy has an excellent treatment for it.  Homeopathic treatment for carbuncle is very safe and side effects are unheard off. Homeopathy uses body’s own defenses to fight infection, thus homeopathic treatment is fast and safe. Homeopathic medicines are made from naturally occurring substances and are free from any toxicity. Once resolved with homeopathic medicines, Carbuncles usually will not recur.

What is Carbuncle?

A carbuncle is an infection that occurs in the deep layers of skin and has an involvement of multiple hair follicles, which are infected. The most common bacterial agent that leads to this infection is Staphylococcus Aureus. It may form a lump with collection of pus, fluid and dead tissue in it. It may occur anywhere but is common on nape of the neck and back.

 

What causes carbuncle?

Exact cause of carbuncle is not known but poor hygiene, friction of clothing and injury while shaving and overall poor health are the contributing factors.

 

What are the symptoms of Carbuncle?

Carbuncle appears a raised lump initially.  There may be redness around it with pain on touching. Gradually it may grow in size( it can range from the size of pea to a golf ball ) and cause significant pain . it may develop a pus point and may start oozing pus and blood . It may even spread to different areas. Fever and fatigue may be present.

Complications of Carbuncle

Sepsis is one of the major complications that can occur due to carbunculosis .In sepsis the infection from the carbuncle enters the blood stream. Immune reaction to the bacteria may lead to endocarditis.

 

Homeopathic treatment for carbuncles

Homeopathic medicines that I have found work the best for the treatment of carbuncles are Anthracinum  , Apis mel ,  Crotalus Horridus , Echinacea , Euphorbinum , lachesis and Tarentula Cub .

Out of all Homeopathic medicine Anthracinum is one medicine that has given me the best results . It is indicated for carbuncles and malignant ulcers. It is very effective when there is succession of boils one after the other. I have found Apis Mel very useful in cases where there is stinging pain in carbuncles. Crotalus Horridus is very useful in cases where the carbuncle is surrounded by purplish mottled skin and edema (swelling). Another great homeopathic medicine for  carbuncle treatment is Echinacea . I t works well in treating recurrent carbuncles .  Euphorbinum is indicated in old indolent ulcers with biting and lancinating pains . Lachesis is best suited for carbuncles that are bluish and purplish in surroundings.

  2. Dr. Sharma,
    I have what could be an angry carbuncle on my forehead. It will sort of heal……. but then
    because I believe there is a hair follicle down deep that won’t resolve it’s issue, it doesn’t really heal…
    And has been there for several weeks now.
    I recently pulled on an inch and a half long very thin hair that when pulled is extremely painful but
    doesn’t want to be pulled out. I have tried heat and every home remedy that is suppose to pull out
    infection. Nothing seems to want to get the culprit out.
    Any suggestions?

  10. SANJAY JHA says:

    I Have lump on my head from last 10 years , its not painful , but does not go away , there are three or four of them mainly on forehead . The Lump , Boil Or Cyst was treat several times for brief duration by several doctors , Homeopathic as well as Allopathic ,

    Allopathic Doctors Suggested Surgery as the only medium , no medicines no Ointment cream or lotion , personally i am not ready for surgery .

    Homeopathic worked sometimes i felt the bump reducing , but the duration killed the whole thing , after 30 – 40 days of treatment either because of unsatisfactory progress or some personal issues this got discontinued .

    i look forward to a reply from you .

    Please suggest me some medicine to get rid off this problem nagging me from last ten years .

    with Regards

    Good day Doc,

    Last December 2012 I have experienced boil, it went back 3 times on Jan, Feb and March. The last time I had a boil, I treated it with Amoxiclav 500 mg. I thought during that time that i almost been free from the said bacteria, but as i woke up yesterday, I was surprised that I have a carbuncle. What is your advice on how to prevent this sickness from recurring.
