Here is short case of abscess which is incised surgically but again it suppurated which needed holistic cure with homoeopathic medicine

Name: Mrs SK.

Age: 45 years

Sex: Female.

Occupation: Housewife.

Presenting complaints:

1. Painful swelling and ulceration of the abdominal wall.

2. Fever with chills since several days.

Details of the Presenting complaints:

The complaints started before two weeks. Initially there was a painful boil on the abdomen. Next day, the patient herself removed the pus by squeezing without taking any aseptic precautions, hence there was swelling and tenderness in the area due to infection. Consulted a modern medical doctor, and he prescribed some medicines including some ointments. But the condition was getting worse day by day even after 12 days. Finally there was huge ulceration with discharge of pus. The whole area was very tender, and hence it was difficult to do the household works. As a result of secondary infection, there was high fever with chills.

Since there was no response from medical treatment, the case was referred to a surgeon where the abscess was incised and dressing was done, but it still has suppuration which was not getting correct in spite of proper post –operative care. The patient was having high fever with chills and there is secondary infection also.  Finally, they decided to take Homoeopathy because even after excision of abscess the tendency of suppuration was there. Hence we were consulted.

Family history: Husband and children are having good health except some allergic problems. Father is having DM.

Vital signs: Pulse: 110/min; Temp: 101.F; RR: 22/min; BP: 120/80

Local examination:
Deep ulceration on the abdominal wall with discharge of pus. The edges of the ulcer look unhealthy with no signs of granulation tissue. Even the fatty tissue is visible. There is hardness and tenderness around the ulcer due to cellulites. Pus was sour smelling.

Notable symptoms:

Easy suppuration from a small boil.

Disease diagnosis: Abdominal wall abscess with cellulitis.

Remedial diagnosis: Hepar Sulph.

Prescription:
1) First visit (1-3-2017): Hepar sulph 200, 3 doses per day, for 7 days.
Patient was advised to keep the area clean. Avoid tight dressing. Also informed them to inform the changes on regular basis, especially about temperature and the condition of ulcer.

2) Second visit (8-3-2017): The ulcer looks very healthy with the presence of granulation tissue. No pus, except watery oozing. Fever is also reduced. Given placebo.

3) Third visit (17-3-2017): The healing process is good, except a small portion at the center. Patient started doing household works. Placebo continued.

4) Fourth visit (28-3-2017): Scab formation has taken place. Patient has slight itching occasionally. Placebo continued.

5) Fifth visit (6-4-2017): The lesion is completely healed with a slight discoloration at the sight. (Photo was not taken)

Discussion:
No repertorization was done for this case. Hepar Sulph was selected on the basis of presenting complaints. There was hypersensitivity, thermal modality, and even the smell of pus was sour smelling like old cheese. When the lesion started improving, placebo was prescribed, and asked the patient to report the progress. The patient is having no complaint till date and the tendency of suppuration is also decreased…………Scope of Homoeopathy where everything fails !
