Injury on right shin, Please help


Today my daughter got hit by a bicycle when she was walking home from school.

The bicycle fell on her right shin (The front part of the leg between the ankle and the knee).

It got swollen and painful. I gave Arnica 30 C in wet dose immediately. The pain was gone after 15 min. It came back after one hour. I gave Arnica again. But the pain was not coming down. She couldn't walk.

I gave her Rhus tox 200 C now.
So what do i do next if the pain wasn't decreasing.

How do i proceed? Should i keep giving both Arnica and Rhus tox? How many doses of Rhus tox can i give her and how often?

Thanks in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Keep giving Arnica 30 every half hour in pills...until swelling and pain subside.

Then make it every two hours.

Gradually reduce frequency further.

If there are external bruises...apply calendulla cream. Somewhere...Kuldeep has suggested how to make calendulla lotion at home.

If there is a punctured wound....give also Ledum 200 ...three doses in gap of half hour. Give it along with Arnica....this is a anti tetnus med.

She complains about a sharp pain in her bone. But there are no scratches on her skin.

So I should or shouldn't give her Rhus tox?

Her pain is not decreasing. She is hopping on one leg. I don't think she can go to school tomorrow.

Can I give her tylenol for her pain?

Do you have Arnica high potency and ruta anon99?

Pl. get an x-ray done for bone injury...since she cannot place body weight on the injured leg !

For meds ...Arnica itself will work.

Put Arnica 200 in a glass of water and give a dose every half an hour till pain fully reduces. Before taking every dose(one teaspoon) , stir the solution atleast thrice. Ruta 200 will benefit bone injury so give it intercurrently 3 times a day in dry form. This will be better than tylenol. As the pain reduces reduce the dosage appropriately.

You can give Ruta along with Arnica...but get the X-ray done.

Pankaj and Maheeru,

Thanks for your replies.

I have only arnica 30c and Rhus tox 200c.

Is Rhus tox and ruta the same remedies?

no !

Here is a good article on that type of injury (i.e., to the shin). Read the sections under Ruta and Symphytum.

Thanks Daisy I went thru that site.

I went to the doctor . Xrays showed there is no fracture.
Thank God.

They tied support on her shin. Arnica didn't work for pain. So I gave her Advil, which gave some relief.

She is able to walk with the support on.

Thanks everybody, for your support.

Where did you buy the medicines from and which make????

I am surprised that Arnica did not work.

Can you get it from another source and try again.
