Mst. HJ, 6 years old was complaining of itching for 3 days. Red spots on the skin which bled after scratching associated with cold and cough. He was diagnosed as suffering from Impetigo. His parents took him to a local doctor but his complaints of impetigo were worsening. So his parents brought him to take homoeopathic treatment for his Impetigo at HomoeoCARE.
What is Impetigo, its causes and Treatment
Impetigo is a highly contagious bacterial infection of skin commonly affecting infants and children. Impetigo causes red sores on the skin which burst and develops a honey-colored crust. Common treatment includes bactericidal ointment but in more severe cases oral antibiotics are prescribed. Impetigo is contagious means it spreads to others to whom you come in contact. Also, the fluid oozing from the patch is contagious and when the child scratches the patch and then he touches to another healthy body part, it spreads.
Homeopathic treatment of Impetigo
Impetigo is basically a bacterial infection. As a rule, antibiotics are taken to remove bacterial infection. But this method neither improves the general immunity of individual nor does it prevent the recurrence of impetigo. The only method to reach this goal is by improving the general health of individual and skin by homeopathic medicines. Within 3 days of homeopathic treatment, the itching was improved and bleeding and oozing from the patches was stopped. Mast. HJ was entirely cured of his Impetigo with Homeopathy.
Tips to prevent the spread of infection
Wash hands thoroughly with warm water and soap.
Clean the crust carefully with lukewarm water and soap and keep it dry.
Application of bactericidal ointments will leave a dark pigmentation on the skin, and hence should be avoided.
