We sell homeopathic creams for wound healing on our site. Calendula is the principal remedy in homeopathy for wound healing, but most of the other remedies we carry also have a field of action in wound healing, often dependent upon the location of the wound.
Arnica montana should be given in potency and not applied topically to open wounds. Calendula should be used topically on the dressing. Arnica helps with the effects of shock and trauma, and to minimize bleeding. Give Arnica internally for wounds that bleed excessively. Arnica has an affinity for wounds to muscle tissue. Falls, sprains, blows, concussions can all be helped by Arnica.
Bellis perennis, a remedy I do not carry (maybe I should carry it), has so much in common with the other first aid remedies. Bellis perennis has an affinity for injuries to soft tissue, such as the breasts and abdomen. It can help with deep trauma or septic wounds, especially of the abdomen and pelvic area. It is a remedy to be thought of for the traumatic wounds of childbirth in the uterine and labial region.
Calendula is the perfect topical application to put on open cuts. No germs can thrive in the presence of Calendula. It can draw out deeply embedded dirt. Calendula cream is wonderful for minor cuts, scrapes and falls. Calendula cream prevents too early granulation of the wound, thus assisting in scarless healing. It helps with painful wounds and wounds that tend to break open. Calendula is listed for neglected wounds, infected wounds, offensive wounds, maggoty and suppurating wounds. In this case I would recommend taking it in potency. I recommend giving Calendula in potency as part of a surgery packet to help heal the surgical wounds and avoid infection. Calendula cream is good for the diaper rashes of babies, and can soothe the dry skin of eczema and psoriasis.
Hypericum should be thought of for excessively painful wounds and for wounds to areas rich in sentient nerves and to the spinal cord. Think of Hypericum for puncture wound injuries, such as stepping on a nail, or crushing the fingers, and for insect and animal bites. The guiding symptom to the use of Hypericum is pain that radiates up and down from the site of the injury. Nervous depression can be present from the injury.
Ledum palustre is well known for its sphere of action in puncture wounds and insect and animal bites. It is listed for puncture wounds, lacterated and incised wounds. The symptoms that guides to the use of Ledum are the patient feels chilly, but is ameliorated by cold applications, and pain extends upward from the site of the wound.
Ruta graveolens is listed for wounds and sprains. Ruta has an affinity for ligaments, tendons and the periosteum or linings of the bones, so think of it for wounds and injuries to these areas. It is listed for gunshot wounds and wounds to the spine.
