Cellulitis has become one of the growing concerns of the female population nowadays, and given its nature, it has every right to be. It comes in many forms, but perhaps one of the most frequent ones is considered to be erysipelas. This form of cellulitis is actually an infection in nature, originating from a specific type of bacteria, and is known to have a negative effect and consequences on those superficial skin layers. The two target groups are infants and older people, but basically, it can befall all other age groups as well. The underlying cause of erysipelas is a group A beta hemolytic streptococci.
Most common symptoms
Just like any infection, this one as well has many underlying causes and symptoms, which manifest themselves either visibly or inner-bodily. Among the most frequent symptoms we find the following: redness in face (glossy in appearance), swellings followed by blisters, chills, fever, ache, to name those most prominent ones.
Homeopathy to the rescue – natural remedies for treating cellulitis and erysipelas
Given the fact that, today, synthetically produced medicines are proving to be more and more harmful than helpful, people are in majority opting for those remedies natural in origin. This is one of the reasons why alternative medicine has been given a lot of attention and recognition. The best homeopathic remedies for the above-mentioned conditions are:
• Belladonna. It is the plant, which is most frequently regarded as the erysipelas commencer. It is exactly its unique nature that, once the Aconite stage is surpassed, it is beneficial only for the specific febrile symptoms. Those varieties of erysipelas, which do correspond to this plant are smooth in nature. Skin tends to glisten, become firm and tense, and change its color to dark/bright red. Swellings itself are quick to develop and accompanied by throbbing headache. The best recommendation is Atropine 3, whereas for brain related symptoms Adynamia and Stramonium are recommended.
• Rhus Tox. This is the natural remedy, which is most effective when versicular variety is present. The skin tends to become dark in color and becomes infested with vesicles. Rhus is specifically effective and accustomed to fighting off the erysipelas whose primary target areas are skin on the face, genitals and scalp.
• Apis Mellifica. Erysipelas that this homeopathic remedy heals is at the beginning pink in color and later on changes in purple as the edema occurs. When it comes to effectiveness, it is somewhere in the middle, right between the Belladonna and Rhus, but unlike these two, it is not effective in controlling a more stronger inflammation, nor does it posses the ability to create the vesicles.
