Cellulitis

Dr Rajesh Shah

Everything  about Cellulitis and its Causes, Symptoms and Homeopathic Treatment:

Cellulitis is an acute or chronic inflammation of the connective tissue of the skin, caused by infection with a type of bacteria (staphylococcus, streptococcus or other bacteria).

Cellulitis frequently occurs on exposed areas of the body such as the arms, legs, and face. It is characterized by redness, swelling, warmth and pain or tenderness.

The swelling can spread rapidly.

Causes:

Cellulitis occurs when the bacteria enter through a break in the skin. This break need not be visible to the naked eyes. Group A Streptococcus and Staphylococcus are the most common bacteria which can cause cellulitis. Predisposing factors for cellulitis include insect bites, animal bites, itchy (pruritic) skin rash, recent surgery, athlete's foot, dry skin, eczema, burns and boils, lymphedema swelling, diabetes, patients on immunosuppressive or corticosteroid medications, etc.

 

Symptoms:

The affected area is red due to the inflammation and there may be warmth over it. Tight, glossy, "stretched" appearance of the skin is commonly seen. Pain or tenderness of the affected area is also seen. Other symptoms that may be seen include fever (with or without chills), sweating, fatigue, muscle pains (myalgia) and malaise. Occasionally, local lymph nodes may be swollen.

Self care for Cellulitis patients:

Rest the affected part of the body
Elevate the infected area to decrease the swelling and to relieve the discomfort.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment:

Homeopathy can effectively manage cases of cellulitis. The skin swelling, redness and pain can very well be treated with homeopathy. Not only does homeopathy successfully manage acute cellulitis but it also helps in preventing the recurrent attacks in cases where this tendency is present. Local care of the affected part combined with homeopathic treatment can ensure good recovery of cellulitis.
