Treatment of Nonbullous Impetigo with Individualized Homoeopathic Medicine MERCURIUS: An Evidence?based Case Report

Dr. Aleena S. J. | Dr. K. Manikanda Perumal [10]

Abstract: Impetigo, a highly contagious skin infection commonly affecting school - going children, tends to be more prevalent during the summer months. There are two main types: Nonbullous Impetigo (NBI) and bullous Impetigo. NBI is the more typical variety and is caused by bacterial pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus and Group A beta - hemolytic Streptococci, or sometimes both in combination. Diagnosis primarily relies on clinical examination, with characteristic features including the presence of honey - colored crusts. Additionally, culturing of pus or bullous fluid may aid in identifying the specific pathogens involved. A 14 - year - old boy presented with NBI even after taking 2 ?weeks of conventional treatment. However, Homoeopathy medicine Mercurius was treated successfully without topicals, complications, or adverse effects.
