Everything about Abscess/Boils and it Homeopathic TreatmentDr Rajesh Shah


An abscess is a localized infection on any part of the body or organ, whereby there is inflammation, swelling, pus formation, and painfulness; with or without other signs of infection.

Causes of abscess:

An abscess is essentially caused by infection, largely bacterial infection. It can also be caused by parasite infection. An abscess may be caused or triggered by a foreign body or physical trauma or injury.

Why does one get an abscess?

An abscess is a sign of the body's reaction to infection or trauma. It is a sign of the body's defense mechanism at work whereby an army of white blood cells start fighting against the infection or foreign body and lead to pus formation. In this process, there will be inflammation, swelling, painfulness and even fever.

Who gets frequent abscesses or boils?

A condition of frequent abscesses especially on the skin is a common phenomenon, suggesting an underlying faulty immune system. In such cases, the underlying immunity calls for treatment besides addressing local infection as a stand-alone problem.

Where does one get an abscess?

Abscesses can occur on any part of the body or organ. Some of the common sites are Skin, mouth, liver, lungs, bones, appendix, mouth, spine, nose, sinus, tonsils, etc. It depends on the individual tendency to catch infection; which in turn is governed by the genetic predisposition.

Symptoms of abscess:

The most common symptoms are a pain, swelling, redness, pus formation, discharge, and fever. Also, depending on the site of an abscess, some symptoms may vary. For example, in the case of abscess of the brain, there will be neurological symptoms; and likewise. If the infection is severe and uncontrolled, there is a possibility of its spread to other parts of the body. Severer infection may lead to a serious condition called septicemia.

Treatment of abscess:

Conventional treatment: Abscess due to bacterial infection respond to antibiotics. In case of the un-ruptured pocket of pus, drainage may be required.

Role of homeopathy for abscess:

Acute abscess of recent origin can respond to homeopathic medicines; however, it may take little longer than antibiotics.

Homeopathy is best indicated in the cases of 1. Frequent abscesses 2. Prolonged (chronic) abscess 3. Resistant abscess.

In the above three categories, the formation of an abscess is surely a sign of altered underlying immunity, which can be treated effectively using homeopathy.

Homeopathy is strongly indicated for recurring and resistant cases of abscesses. More reading: Case studies of Recurrent boils
