    My 3 year old OES has a cut above her left eye. It is not infected, but it has a little bit of clear “oozie” stuff coming out of it. The cut is about 1/4″.
    Is she going to need stitches? Or can it heal on it’s own if it doesn’t get infected?

    Thank you,
    Tarja

    In my practice I rarely find the need to use antibiotics for wounds (or much of anything for that matter). Topical cleansing (I like peroxide for this purpose) and aggressive *hot* compressing is usually sufficient.

    Of course a well chosen homeopathic remedy will also speed the process and help the immune system deal with any secondary infection.
