We sell homeopathic creams for puncture wounds on our site. The remedy most well-known for puncture wounds is Ledum palustre, followed closely after by Hypericum perforatum. Calendula officinalis can also be beneficial. Please read below to see which cream best suits your wound.
Calendula is such a great remedy for wound healing in general. It is listed for puncture wounds, gunshot wounds, and particularly for puncture wounds to the brain. It is a great remedy to dress the wound with. For puncture wounds, I recommend combining it with Ledum or Hypericum creams, depending upon which one suits the injury the best.
Hypericum is listed for puncture wounds from nails, splinters, insects and mosquitoes, needles or sharp pointed instruments. It is one of the remedies that prevents tetanus. Hypericum has a strong affinity for injuries to areas rich in nerves, such as the fingers, toes and the spine. Remember it for puncture wounds to these areas. A strong guiding symptom to the use of Hypericum is pains that radiate up and down from the site of the wound, following the course of the nerve. The wound is very sore and sensitive to touch. Hypericum relieves pain after operations, helps with crushed wounds, and the pain of amputation.
Ledum can be used for the same types of puncture wounds that Hypericum can. It is very important for the stings of insects, particularly mosquitoes. Ledum is a great remedy for the local effects of vaccinations, such as swelling at the site of the vaccine. Other remedies like Silica and Thuja may be necessary for the constitutional effects of the vaccination. J.T. Kent says that Ledum helps with puncture wounds where this is slight bleeding, with pain, puffiness and coldness of the part. He says, “If, after such punctured wounds, the area becomes cold and then pale, paralyzed and mottled think of Ledum.” Like Hypericum this is one of our remedies for preventing tetanus. Guiding symptoms to the use of Ledum are amelioration from immersing in ice or cold applications, and pains that ascend from the site of the wound.
