How Can I Cure Cellulitis Naturally?

Q:
How can I cure cellulitis naturally?

A:
Cellulitis is a serious bacterial infection of the skin. It occurs when a crack or break in your skin allows bacteria to enter. It usually affects the skin on the lower legs, but it can occur in the face, arms and other areas. Here are the natural cellulitis treatments:

1. Increase Immune Function by Avoiding Antibacterial Overkill

  • Only using antibiotics when completely necessary, breastfeeding infants and avoiding harsh antibacterial toxins/chemicals.
  • Try to only consume grass-fed or pasture-raised meat that’s not raised with use of antibiotics.

2. Clean and Protect Open Cuts on Your Skin

  • Gently wash your skin, especially any open wound or cuts, daily with natural antibacterial soap and water.
  • Apply bandages or ointments on your wound. (Be sure to wash your hands before touching openings in your skin.)
  • Keep damaged or irritated skin cool, damp if necessary (by applying moist bandages if you’re doctor recommends this) and elevated if swelling is bad.
  • Keep healing skin away from very hot water or very cold temperatures.
  • Avoid applying any irritating or toxic chemical products to your skin while it’s healing, including perfumes, soaps, lotions, makeup, etc., and instead opt for natural cleaning products.
  • Avoid sunlight.

3. Practice Good Hygiene

  • Keep the skin clean and improving blood flow to the skin.
  • Be careful not to touch the skin of anyone else who is infected with a fungal infection
  • Wash your skin and clothing using natural products regularly, especially if you’ve been near anyone who is sick with an infection.
  • Don’t share items like razors or other products that touch the skin.
  • Drink enough water and eat a healthy diet.

4. Treat Infection Pain/Swelling with Natural Products

  • Press a warm compress against the rash once or twice daily using a fresh, clean washcloth or towel.
  • Soak inflamed skin under a warm shower (but not too hot) or in a warm bath.
  • Very gentle stretch stiff areas to keep them from getting even more stiff.
  • Wear loose, breathable clothing made from natural fibers.
  • Keep any chemical products or skin irritants off the affected area (perfume, scented body soaps, detergents, lotions, etc.).
  • With clearance from your doctor first, apply soothing essential oils, such as a rash cream with lavender oil, to irritated or swollen skin, combined with a moisturizing carrier oil, such as coconut oil, several times daily. Chamomile oil and tea tree oil are also beneficial for helping the skin heal and feel less inflamed.

If you don’t have obvious improvement in your skin pain, redness, and swelling within the first two or three days of treatment, please contact your doctor immediately.
