Pilonidal abscess treatment

I am a 23 year old male college student. I am very distressed by my Pilonidal abscess condition. I felt a pain and swelling above my gluteal cleft around mid-December 2011 and the abscess burst on 20th December 2011, following which the pain subsided. Pus culture and sensitivity test revealed Methicillin-resistant Staph. aureus. A general surgeon diagnosed it as Pilonidal abscess and advised Surgery, but I dont want to go in for Surgery as it would be problematic for my studies. The abscess continues to discharge pus and blood till now. I have tried allopathic antibiotics like Linezolid and Doxycycline, but to no avail. It would be of great help to me if someone here helps me out with an effective homoeopathic regimen which may cure me of my condition.

Thanks in advance

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take Myristica 200 in the morning and evening for 7 days and report back.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Dear Dr.Kadwa,
Unfortunately, my parents pressurized me into going for surgery and so I could not take your prescribed medicines. I underwent surgery on 9th march 2012- wide excision and healing by secondary intention. The surgical wound has not healed completely till today, but the original pus point is closed. Today morning I again noticed an opening on the skin just a little above the point where the sinus opening had originally developed in December. When i removed the gauze dressing in the afternoon, there was a lot of pus and blood in it from the new sinus opening. I am very much afraid that this is a case of recurrence and even my parents dont want me to go in for surgery once again. Dr. Kadwa, please please please formulate a treatment plan for me so that I dont have to go through the traumatic surgery one more time.
Please do help me.
Regards

What is the color of pus right now? Surgery must never be an option as it comes back.
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
Thank you for your reply. The discharge is pus mixed with blood, and the colour is pinkish/pinkish-brown. Please do help me to achieve a cure without going in for surgery.

Thank you again Dr.Nawaz for your concern and detailed advice. Actually this is the first time that i am going to try a homeopathic regimen, so i would like to enquire about a few points. I live in Kolkata, India. Do you have any recommendations from where i can purchase the medicines? Dr. Batra's http://www.drbatras.com/en/ has clinics in Kolkata. Should i purchase your suggested medicines from there?
Do i have to undertake any other precautions while undergoing this regimen? Any dietary restrictions? Any dietary modifications with respect to the dosage times that i need to follow? Also will the medications dry up the sinus tract? I mean could you throw some light on how the regimen will act in my condition?
It would be of great help if you address my queries. Thank you again for your kind concern
Warm regards

Dear Simone, Please help here.
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
Hello Abhirup-

Please purchase the medicines at that
clinic if they have them-I am in USA
but I know medicines are easily available
everywhere in India. Make sure you get
medicines that are sealed up and
not tampered with.

Hopefully you can find the Berberis vulgaris 1x -if not get the mother tincture of it. which is called Q.

Nawaz does not give dietary restrictions except eat healthy
food and avoid mucous forming food like ice cream and
icy sodas.

The medications are for drying up the sinus and healing
the area. The medications are based on your current
symptoms and you take them, then report what is going
on and then you will be told what to take next. It goes
in layers, and your unique reaction to what is given lets
Nawaz then decide what is next. The object is to get
rid of symptoms and raise the vital force of the body so
that your immune system is working correct and then
there is no disease bc body is working as it should.

Also if you want to know more click on Nawaz name
and read some posts, and look at the ABC feedback
thread. You are in experienced hands here I help
out a bit, and of course you may ask questions
as they come up.

Best regards,
Simone717

Dear Dr. Nawaz and Simone
I am into the 3rd day of the medication regimen (began this Wednesday). Developments noted:
-amount of discharge from the new sinus opening has reduced remarkably. The soaked part of the gauze dressing measured only around 1 cm by 1cm for the last 24 hours. ( I change the gauze dressing once around every 24 hours). Discharge colour is orangish-brown.
-the Pilonidal dimple has also reduced slightly in size. The tense feeling in the soft tissues around the new dimple/opening has reduced to a certain extent.
-there has been no reduction in the amount of discharge from the operative wounds. In fact the discharge from the operative wounds is more than from the new opening at present. Colour of the discharge here is like dried blood mixed with a little amount of pus.

Also I understand that I need to take Berberis Vulgaris for 4 days and Alumen 30C for 5 days?
Thank you again for your concern.
Warm regards
Abhirup
 
abhirup_basak 7 years ago
Good!
How about the pain and swelling, if any?
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
There is some amount of pain, but not of much concern. The swelling, that is the pilonidal dimple around the sinus opening, has decreased in size, but not completely disappeared. So should i continue the regimen beyond the period you mentioned?
 
abhirup_basak 7 years ago
No, let's complete the suggested period first. Then, we will evaluate in a few days, inshallah.
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
Ok thank you. I will proceed exactly as you say.

Dear Dr. Nawaz and Simone
Today I am into the last day of the medication regimen. I completed the 4 day course of Berberis vulgaris yesterday. Only today's bedtime dose of Alumen 30C remains. Developments noted:
-there has been absolutely no discharge from the new sinus opening in the past 48 hours.
-pilonidal dimple, that is, the swelling around the new sinus opening, is persisting and now measures 0.5 cm by 0.5 cm.
-discharge /secretions from the old operative wounds is continuing the same as before.
-i feel some pain and discomfort after remaining seated for long periods.

Please advise me on what I need to do from tomorrow. I do not know how to thank you for your kind concern.
Warm regards

abhirup_basak 7 years ago
Hi,
Please confirm that there is no bleeding at all?

'pilonidal dimple, that is, the swelling around the new sinus opening, is persisting and now measures 0.5 cm by 0.5 cm.'
Please take a daily dose of Ferrum Phos 200C to reduce swelling.

'-discharge /secretions from the old operative wounds is continuing the same as before. '
What is the exact color of pus?

Please continue with Alumen 30C for 5 more days. But, only one daily dose now.

Also, take Hypericum 200C and Calendula 200C daily one dose, for 5 days.

Many prayers for your speedy recovery.
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
No, there has been no discharge of either pus or blood from the new sinus opening in the past 48 hours.
The secretions colour from the old operative wounds is of dried blood with a little pus - brownish-red.
Should i take Alumen 30C when i wake up or when i go to bed?
Also could you please inform me about the dose and timings of Ferrum phos 200C, Hypericum 200C and Calendula 200C? What is meant by one dose?
Thank you so much
Abhirup Basak
 
abhirup_basak 7 years ago
Hi- a dose is always 4 drop in
1/4 cup of mineral water- for everything.

Take the Alumen 30c before bed.
Take Hypericum 200c 30 minutes
before breakfast.

Take Calendula 200c half hour after
lunch.


Take the Ferrum Phos 200 c 30 minutes after dinner.

Take care, Simone717
