Herbal Remedies for Cellulitis Infection - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Treatment

cellulitis, infection

Cellulitis is a very common but a serious bacterial infection in which the skin appears swollen and red and is very painful as well as warm to touch.

It affects the skin on the lower legs but it can occur on the face, arms as well as on the other areas. This infection occurs when a crack or break in the skin allows the bacteria to enter.

If this infection is not treated timely, then the infection can spread to the lymph nodes as well as in the bloodstream and becomes life threatening rapidly.

This infection is usually not contagious i.e. does not spread from person to another person.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CELLULITIS INFECTION?

The signs and symptoms of cellulitis occur on one side of the body which include:

  • Red area of the skin that tends to expand
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Warmth
  • Fever
  • Red spots
  • Blisters
  • Skin dimpling

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF CELLULITIS INFECTION?

Cellulitis infection occurs when the bacteria such as Streptococcus or Staphylococcus enter through the crack or break in the skin. This infection can occur anywhere on the body but the most common location is the lower leg.

Bacteria usually enter at the disrupted areas of the skin such as where there is a recent surgery, cuts, wounds, puncture, wounds, athlete's foot, flaky skin, ulcer, swollen skin, dry, flaky skin, dermatitis etc.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT

Cellulitis infection can be diagnosed by looking at the skin. In some cases, doctor may suggest blood tests or some other tests to help to rule out the other conditions.

Modern medicine prescribes oral antibiotics to treat the cellulitis infection for 10-14 days. If the signs and symptoms do not respond to oral antibiotics or the patient has high fever, then the patient has to hospitalised and receive antibiotics through the veins.

However, the inadvertent use of antibiotics in the past few decades have resulted in lower efficacy of the antibiotics. Hence, antibiotics are not effective in destroying the organisms and clearing the infection completely. Hence, patients are advised to use natural remedies which help in eliminating the bacteria as well as hasten the recovery without causing side effects.

According to Ayurveda, cellulitis infection occurs due to the vitiation of all the three doshas, with Pitta dosha being the dominant one. The Ayurvedic treatment involves the use of herbs which have the ability to destroy the bacteria and also to protect the tissues against further damage.
