Ayurvedic Treatment for Abscess

Abscesses can form in almost any part of the body, because these need blood, tissues etc. to build up and these can be found anywhere in the body. . The skin, under the skin, and the teeth-which are exposed to external enviornment are the most common sites. Abscess cannot be healing by its own it requires medical attention. If ignored the abscess will worsen and the infection can potentially spread to deeper tissues and even into the bloodstream.

Small abscesses should be treated by applying warm compresses to the area several times a day. It will help in maturation of the abscess and promote spontaneous drainage of the abscess. As the abscess is drained properly it will heal by itself. You should not attempt to drain the abscess by yourself. This can lead to trauma to the surrounding tissue and potentially help spread the underlying infection.

Drainage is done by making a cut in the lining and providing an escape route for the pus, either through a drainage tube or by leaving the cavity open to the skin. The area around the abscess is numbed before draining. Most people feel immediately better after the draining.

Many abscesses subside after drainage alone; others subside after drainage and drug treatment. Antibiotics are usually prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, antifungal drugs to treat fungi, and antiameobic drugs to treat Amoebiasis because cause behind the abscess is the same and until unless cause won't be removed the problem with persist, for sure. 

Without spontaneous or surgical drainage, sometimes an abscess can be reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Incomplete reabsorbing leaves a cystic loculation (small pouches) within a fibrous wall where calcium salts sometimes accumulate to form a calcified mass. This is the basic concept behind the treatment of the Abscess according to Ayurveda. Ayurveda believes that immune system of the body should be that strong that it will be able to fight all kind of external as well as internal causes of the disease. This applies on all the diseases. The natural remedies for natural cure of the Abscess are designed as per the same principle of Ayurveda.
