Are the antibiotics given to you for treating your cellulitis infection giving you side effects like nausea, diarrhea, belly pain or cramps, vaginal itching or discharge? Worse, are your symptoms not getting any better with the antibiotic course prescribed? This often happens because cellulitis bacteria such as streptococcus and staphylococcus are known to rapidly mutate into antibiotic resistant strains that no longer respond to antibiotic treatment.
Moreover, cellulitis can cause potentially serious complications such as large, painful abscesses below the skin, damage to the lymphatic vessels, permanent swelling of the affected tissue, irreversible damage to skin tissue, and bacteremia, which is spreading of bacteria through blood and can be life-threatening. Therefore, seeking a timely and effective cellulitis treatment is absolutely essential.
Also, the bacteria causing cellulitis are opportunistic pathogens and spread from person to person or even from animals to people in some cases. Skin-to-skin contact with someone who carries staph bacteria along with sharing personal items are the two most common ways that bacteria are passed between patients. And, people with weak immune systems are more vulnerable to catching the infection. So, if you’ve been diagnosed with cellulitis, then please realize that a healthy immune system is absolutely necessary for your treatment of cellulitis. Read on to know which dietary foods, herbs, and natural extracts will help boost your immune mechanism and help you on your journey towards health and freedom.
Are There any Other Treatments Available for Cellulitis Apart From Antibiotics?
A strong immune system is the best way to stay free of a cellulitis infection. Your diet and lifestyle are some of the predominant factors that decide your quality of living. Correct eating habits can dispel many acquired diseases and assist in maintaining good health. However, at times you do need medication to get you back on track. Sadly, conventional medicines typically don’t have drugs that boost immunity and antibiotics only help suppress symptoms and reduce bacterial load. Moreover, they kill all types of microbes present in the body thus creating an imbalance in the gut flora compromising the body’s immunity further. On the other hand, you’ll find several groundbreaking researches in Natural Medicine that showcase the immune boosting properties of several nutrients, herbs, and advanced homeopathies.
