Bruises, known medically as contusions, occur when small blood vessels under the skin break, usually from an impact or trauma, leading to discoloration, swelling, and pain.
Immediate First Aid for Bruises:
- Rest: Avoid using the injured area to prevent further injury.
- Ice: Apply a cold pack or a wrapped ice pack to the bruise for 15-20 minutes every hour for the first 24-48 hours.
- Compression: Wrap the bruised area with an elastic bandage to reduce swelling, but not so tightly that it causes numbness or tingling.
- Elevation: Keep the bruised area raised above the level of the heart to minimize swelling and pain.
These actions can help in managing pain, reducing inflammation, and speeding up the healing process. If a bruise is particularly painful, large, or associated with severe swelling and pain, seek medical attention.
Homeopathic remedies can effectively manage bruises. Key options include:
- Arnica Montana 30: Ideal for widespread bruising and discolored skin; use lotion externally.
- Bellis Perennis 30: Best for deep tissue and breast bruising, as well as internal organ injuries.
- Conium Maculatum 30: Follows Bellis Perennis for persistent bruise effects.
- Hypericum Perforatum 30: Suited for bruises on extremities and spine, helps with nerve pain.
- Ruta Graveolens 30: Targets bruises on bones' outer layer, tendons, and cartilage.
- Sulphuric Acid 30: Useful when bruises last unusually long or skin turns livid.
- Calendula Officinalis 30: Accelerates the healing of bruises.

Effective Home Treatment for Burns
Burns, often occurring from heat, electricity, or chemicals - frequently in the kitchen or during festive events—require prompt action to mitigate damage and aid healing. Immediate home care can ease the treatment process for doctors, especially for superficial burns which can heal with homeopathic remedies.
Immediate Actions for Burns:
- For electrical or chemical burns, seek medical attention due to their severity.
- If clothing catches fire, press the victim to the ground and smother flames with a blanket or similar item.
- Run cool water over burns from fire for 5-10 minutes.
- Remove jewelry or clothing from the burned area without breaking any blisters.
- For burns larger than seven centimeters, or on sensitive areas like the face or throat, go to the doctor right away.
Homeopathic Treatments for Burns:
- For minor burns without blisters: Apply Urtica ointment/Gel externally. Internally, take Cantharis three times daily for five days.
- - For burns with blisters: Take Cantharis vesicatoria orally, three times a day for five days.
- For burns with wounds: Use Calendula ointment. Continue with Cantharis vesicatoria orally, three times a day for five days.
- For shock or fear from burns: Administer Aconitum napellus twice, 15 minutes apart, followed by Cantharis vesicatoria twice on the day of the burn and then three times a day for six days.
- For deep burns with skin damage: Give Kalium bichromicum four times a day for one day and see a doctor.

Following is recommended by Kjetill Oftedal, a classical homeopath in his book ‘Family Homeopathy & Survival Guide’
- For minor burns you can take Urtica Urens 30C & apply the Gel.
- For more severe burns, the first remedy to take is Aconite.
- With shock, take Arnica 200C, especially if the burn area is better from heat. With intense pains, take Arsenic 30C or lower once, or several times
Always remember, severe burns need medical evaluation, so don't delay professional care.
