PROPHYLAXIS OF RECURRENT ERYSIPELAS
IN PATIENTS WITH LIMB LYMPHOEDEMA
HOMOTOXICOLOGICAL TREATMENT
PRELIMINARY RESULTS

The most frequent complications of patients with chronic lymphostasis are erysipelas
and lymphangitis. In the absence of adequate decongestion, antibiotic therapy is not
sufficient to significantly reduce the amount of bacteria. This eventually leads to
chronicity of infection with progressive worsening of the clinical features of involved
soft tissues. In recent years, we have observed multi antibiotic resistance of bacteria
localized on the skin of patients affected by chronic lymphostasis. There is an
increasing difficulty to eradicate the infection with a consequent progressive chronic
inflammation leading to critical degree of tissue degeneration. In this work, we
reported data obtained in lymphedema patients from the implementation of
homotoxycological programs designed to treat acute and chronic persistent erysipelas
and to prevent relapses. Results of this approach seem promising and indicate to
propose to patients and pratictioners a combined approach with conventional and
homotoxycological program to treat these conditions.
