Follow up on Possible CAMRSA boil.


On third day course of antibiotics there was only 40 percent improvement and there were still new boils were forming, although with a slow rate and growth.

Mother did reconsulted on third day and her PCP reported that during this monsoon boils are not responsive generally to common safe antibiotics and now changed amoxicillin to ofloxacin for three days. On 2nd days there was about 70 percent improvement, but still new boils were arising and at this time mother revisited me again and reported same course of antibiotics described earlier.

She wanted to me to prescribe something. I have already advised her to give Calendula Q and Echinacea Q so I decided to search again on constitutional medicine and now I noticed that Puls has skin eruption which tend to occur on the base of nose, which is exactly happening here and also looked upon fear of dark in repertory in which Puls is also listed in second grade medicine.

So I decided to advised mom to give one dose of Puls 30 at night and to report me next morning. On next morning, she reported marked decrease in erythema involved with the boil and upon this I advised her to Puls 30c for two days and advised her to complete the antibiotic course.

After two days all boils healed, but on fourth day after finishing course of antibiotics and Puls doses the baby girl again have some red rash one on his scalp, one her forehead, and one on pinna and the mom as soon as seen this started him on Puls again and they are stable and somewhat reduced now.

Mom reported me that she has stopped giving Calendula and Echinacea upon this I advised her to start this again and continue throughout this monsoon season and call me whenever she develop new boils as she may need one of her constitutional medicine i.e., Puls or Sulphur according to the totality of present symptoms.

Hoping, she will not develop boils upon this treatment.

Treatment/management for recurrent rash/boils/abscess in summer


In my experience treating/managing recurrent rash/boils/abscess in summer/rainy season is very difficult. From homeopathic point of view, unless a constitutional medicine is not given there would be no cure or significant improvement.

Frequent washing is the key for preventing recurrent boils/rash in summer/rain. Bacteria responsible for boils/rash mainly colonize in the inside the nose and causes boils upon reaching skin usually by nose boring by fingers. There is usually more boring of nose because there is increase crusting in summer in nose. Children tend to bore nose extensively and so children tend to get recurrent boils in summer. Parents should keep the nostril moisturized and may apply some antibiotic solution or homeopathic antibiotic solution Calendula Q.

Calendula Q internally as well as externally should be used as early as you see any boils in summer/rainy season.

Echinacea Q/30c should be used two times daily if you tend to suffer from recurrent boils.

For pain ease from boils in children: Apply pads soaked with warm water with calendula Q for 10-20 seconds alternated with pads soaked with calendula Q in cold water for 3-8 seconds for early maturation and ease of boils. This should be repeated three to five times per day. This really works.

Taking Homeopathic Medicine With Allopathic Medicines


I often face situation where I have to give homeopathic treatment along with allopathic medicines advised other physician.

I do not prescribe allopathic medicine to my patient and when these are necessary I used to refer the patient to allopathic physician.

I usually use homeopathic therapeutic medicines not a polychrest homeopathic medicines or constitutional homeopathic treatment in such situation. I do believe this can cause some unwanted reaction while the patient is already got down by sickness.

I usually prefer to wait to patient recover from this acute condition and then give a homeopathic medicine according to the whole symptomatology represented during the episode of illness and the remaining sequelae of it. I usually use water dose initially in such cases.

The case given below is an example for circumstance for homeopathic treatment with allopathic treatment and my method of doing so. Whenever I am asked to give homeopathic medication while the patient is taking allopathic medicines, I usually use mother tincture or lowest potency and a homeopathic medicine who has marked action on that particular disease, disease location or systems involved.

One example case is presented here. For reading the original case click here and for the followup post click here.

Questionable CAMRSA Staph aureus Boils And Homeopathy With Allopathy

This breakout of small boils in this girl seems to be caused by CAMRSA staph aureus infections, as it is not responding quite nicely with antibiotic treatment consisting of amoxicillin and azithromycin. On third day of therapy, there is only 40% improvement. All the boils on nose and one on head are present, but usually they are less erythematous and raised. I advised her to give only Calendula Q and Echinacea 30 to enhance the recovery process. Mostly boils are in the form of solid erythematous papules with delicate looking overlying skin. One papule drained quite much pus in comparison to its size and it is now healing nicely. Some of boil are healing with leaving clotted blood overlying its opening. The child has now decreased thirst and she is urinating less, but mentally she is okay and does not like to wash it with water. The child has also lost some weight, which is common with any type of infection.

Heat Rash and Boils on Scalp-Miliaria pustulosa


This is a case of a baby girl whom I am giving homeopathic treatment from very early in her life when she was a few days old. She is growly very brightly and healthly with homeopathy. She is so charming and follows commonds like very wonderful and her catching and learning capicities are great. She has no fear of vaccination injections as she do great with a few doses of around vaccination and she cries only 30 seconds when pricked by nurse and she leaves the nurse with simle and gesturing byee when leaving.

She is now 17-month old and had only one diarrhea episode, which was successfully treated with Puls which occured in December 2008 and until now she has only two episodes of which were aborted in just two day with the help of Puls and Sulphur only.

She recently developed some prickly heat rash, which were also managed by applying of ice, frequent bathing, and Sulphur.

But recently mother reported some new things, which I am considering not good i.e. desire for light in night while eariler she enjoyed dark and were used to move while in dark, big belly, rather slow weight gain, constipation, bowel movements after meals, etc., but once again mentally the girl is very bright with good memory.

Mother described these things on her last visit for bowel movements after meals. I told her that it is not a disease condition or , but she desired to remove this tendency early and back her to baseline when she used to have a good bowel movement early in the morning and then next one the next morning. One can understand the comfort with associated with this and I gave her Sulphur and Puls each for one day and her bowel movement returned for baseline. This was just eight days ago.

Two days ago, this mother returned for treatment of prickly heat and some boils on her forehead and scalp. This occured because there was a very hot and humid day after rain and prolonged power cut. I gave her once again Sulphur and advised to return if no improvement in next two days. She returned today and there was no improvement and mother washed the head three times with soap and avoided mango, which I asked to do.

This leads me to restudy the case once again and now the
