How to Effectively Manage Cellulitis with Ayurveda

Cellulitis is the bacterial infection of your skin. Staphylococcus and Streptococcus are the most common bacteria involved in cellulitis, which enter into your skin through cracks or abrasion.

Cellulitis can occur in any part of your body including the face. But legs are commonly affected. It can be dangerous as it spreads rapidly into deeper tissues, lymph nodes, blood stream and to other parts of the body.

Causes of Cellulitis

  • Any trauma, like fracture, skin cut or burns.
  • Post surgery or after administration of injection or intravenous drug.
  • Low immune power.
  • Skin diseases like eczema, chicken pox, athlete’s foot, etc.
  • Prolonged oedema in the limbs can cause break in the continuity of the skin and makes a way for bacterial infection.
  • Being obese or diabetic will precipitate the chances of cellulitis.

Symptoms of Cellulitis 

  • Reddish discolouration of the skin.
  • Pain and tenderness.
  • Fever.
  • Swelling.
  • Blister formation.
  • Warm feeling over the affected area.

 

Sometimes cellulitis can be life threatening as it may necrotise your tissue. If you find the above symptoms and you feel it might be cellulitis, immediately consult your physician.

 

Management of Cellulitis

  • You may need to take a course of either oral or intravenous antibiotics.
  • Wash and clean your wound daily. You can use Panchavalkala Kwatha or Triphala Kashayam to clean the wound.
  • Use a bandage to cover your wound.
