Homeopathic Remedies for skin burns

Burns refers to the skin injury arising out of exposure to heat, chemicals and electricity. Burns can also be caused by radiations (from sun or X-rays). Burns can involve just the outer layer of skin, or can penetrate the deeper layers and in the severe cases, even up to bones and muscles.When only the outer or superficial skin is burnt, it is called first degree burns. Here, the skin gets red with pain and swelling. In second and third degree burns, the injury involves the deeper layers of skin partially or in whole thickness, respectively.In second degree burns, blisters (fluid-filled eruptions) appear along with redness and swelling of skin. In third degree burns, the skin appears white or brown. In the fourth degree burns, the skin appears black and charred, exposing the bones and muscles. The third and fourth degree burns are painless. The main complications arising in burns cases are infection, gangrene, pneumonia and nephritis.Third and fourth degree burns need urgent intensive care in hospital. The Homeopathic mode of treatment, however, is of great help for minor superficial burns up to second degree. The Homeopathic medicines, which are made of natural substances, not only provide relief from pain and swelling, but also halt any signs of an infection or old burns wounds that open up. The Homeopathic remedies for burns are absolutely safe, with zero side effects.

Natural Homeopathic Treatment for Burns

The minor superficial burns up to second degree can be very effectively treated with natural Homeopathic remedies. The third and fourth degree burns, however, need urgent intensive care in hospital. Although Homeopathic medicines can be given for third and fourth degree burns also, but this is done only after the initial first aid in hospital. Homeopathic medicines help in reducing burning, pain and swelling. The natural homeopathic treatment for burns also help in preventing blister formation. The cases of burns that are slow to heal or old burns that suddenly start to pain or reopen can be very well managed with Homeopathic remedies. Burns cases which show signs of infection or are tending towards gangrene recovery can greatly benefit from properly selected Homeopathic medicines.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for Burns

Cantharis: Best natural Homeopathic remedy for Burns

Cantharis is the best natural Homeopathic remedy for burns and should always be the first choice of medicine for the treatment of burns. The reason for selecting this Homeopathic medicine in the very initial stage is because of its remarkable tendency to provide relief from burning pains and preventing blister formation. Cantharis helps in the speedy recovery of burnt skin and can be given in all those cases of burns arising out of dry heat, wet heat (hot drinks) or burns from sun. The person needing Cantharis has an acute burning and smarting pain in the burnt area. Along with burning, the skin is markedly red and inflamed. The person also appears very restless in addition to these symptoms. Although Cantharis possesses the tendency to prevent blister formation, but even in cases of burns where blisters form,Cantharis is of great help. For using Cantharis in burns with blisters, the burning-smarting pain is the key symptom. So, first and second degree burns can be very effectively handled by Homeopathic remedy Cantharis.

Urtica Urens: Homeopathic medicine for first degree burns

Urtica Urens is another very beneficial natural Homeopathic medicine for burns. It is mostly used in first degree burns confined to superficial skin. The redline symptom for using Homeopathic remedy Urtica Urens is burning and stinging pains in burnt skin. The skin is intensely red, swollen with burning and stinging pains. Urtica Urens helps in providing relief from the burning-stinging pains very promptly and helps in quick recovery.Urtica Urens is considered one of the top Homeopathic medicinesfor the treatment of first degree burns.

Causticum: Homeopathic medicine for burns that heal slowly

Causticum is the ideal Homeopathic remedy for burns that are very slow to heal. Causticum is of great help in hastening the healing process in burns cases. Persons who can greatly benefit from natural Homeopathic medicine Causticum have a major complaint of rawness, excessive soreness and pain in the burnt area. Causticum also helps to speed up the recovery of burns and soothen the soreness and pain in the affected area. Another important field for using Causticum in burns is reopening of burns that had occurred long ago. Causticum is also the best Homeopathic medicine for all those cases where the person complains of soreness and pain in old healed burns. Causticum thus can be used in two fields of burns cases: when the burns are slow to recover and when old burns surprisingly freshen up, leading to pain and soreness.

Top Homeopathic treatment for burns with pus-formation

Homeopathic medicines Calendula, Hepar Sulph and Calcarea Sulph are the best natural remedies for burns where pus has begun to form or in medical terms,where burns have suppurated. Calendula is the top Homeopathic medicine that acts as preventive agent against suppuration or pus-formation. If Calendula is used in the very beginning, the chances of pus formation are greatly reduced. Calendula also prevents the disfiguring scar formation and promotes healthy healing. When the pus has already formed, Hepar Sulph and Calcarea Sulph are very beneficial. For using Hepar Sulph in treatment of suppurating burns, the symptoms are offensive pus discharge with a sensitive skin to touch. Burning, stinging, pricking pains are felt along with pus discharge. Fever with chills may also appear with a desire to be covered up warmly along with pus discharge. Homeopathic medicine Calcarea Sulph is the most appropriate remedy where typically there is a yellow pus discharge from the burnt skin. Calcarea Sulph is of great help in controlling the pus discharge that is precisely yellow in colour.

Homeopathic remedies for burns tending towards gangrene

Gangrene is a term used when a body tissue becomes dead. Natural Homeopathic medicines Arsenic Album, Anthracinum and Secale Cor can be used according to their symptom indication for burns heading towards the gangrenous process. All these Homeopathic medicines help in halting the gangrene process, but their selection is made on the basis of the peculiar symptoms characteristic to each one of them. Arsenic Album is the best Homeopathic remedy when burning pains are marked with ulcers oozing an offensive discharge. Restlessness and anxiety also appear in the utmost degree. A peculiar symptom of relief from burning pain by warmth serves as a guiding symptom to select Arsenic Album over other Homeopathic remedies. The symptoms for using Homeopathic medicine Anthracinum for gangrenous burns include blue or black blisters on skin with burning. Ulceration and sloughing of skin is also present along with burning pains. Secale Cor is the ideal Homeopathic choice when skin appears shrivelled with a blue appearance. Burning pains are also experienced. The burning, however, gets better by cold for the use of Secale Corin comparison to Homeopathic medicine Arsenic Album,which is best when heat relieves the pain.

  35. I had a bilateral mastectomy and somehow my skin burned, 3rd dagree. It’s been 7 months now, the only treatment my breast specialist has provided during this has been petroleum clothes. She sees me every two weeks and tells me I should continue to keep my burns covered with these clothes. My skin has healed considerably but still has deep red areas where it hasn’t healed. Can you recommend a specific homeopathy treatment that may be beneficial?

  36. Shraddha Nigam says:

    This is really a nice article. However, my problem is more grave than burns.
    Around 5 -6 years back, 2 lady doctors gave me chemical peeling and laser treatment (after 3-4 months) to treat superficial sun burn that drastically destroyed my skin texture and color making my skin black and discolored rather than healing it. Though, I’ve been able to heal my skin with couple of homoeopathic and biochemic medicines with time. But there are still many harsh and ugly burn marks on my forehead that are not getting dissolved, Can you please suggest me some remedy.
    My skin is highly sensitive and I’m 42. Moreover, I’m aggressive and quite restless at nights.

  37. Robin Bishop says:

    93-year-old mother has black or red eschar on leg wounds from being bedbound for two months and injuries from weighing in a sling that tuned into wounds.

    Good ability to rise from the ashes, step up to the plate, when allowed. Pretty depressed and sleeps a lot now.

    Diabetes controlled with insulin. Tube fed with formula that has as a main ingredient corn syrup, so hence insulin sometimes.

    Also, one big toe looks worse and probably dead. Purple black in parts.

    In a long term acute care hospital that is kind of primitive. I can use homeopathic you with ease.

  38. I recently had hip replacement. I burned the area (about the size of silver dollar) that had black eschar on it for a month. It’s recently Been debried, but healing very very slow. Also it is still draining. Dr, says there is no infection. They gave me silvadene to use, but I have allergic reaction to it. What can i use to promote healing. My surgery scar healed in normal time, but this burn in area is taking for ever.
