Homeopathy Treatment for mucous membranes

Inflammation of the mucous membranes can occur in various places: the mouth, throat, stomach, intestines or urinary tract are often affected by inflammation of the mucous membranes. Infection is usually the cause of inflamed mucous membranes. Inflammation of the mucous membranes can occur as a side effect as part of cancer treatment or when taking certain medications.

Homeopathic remedies are primarily used to alleviate the symptoms of mucosal diseases. They are intended to mitigate the consequences of the infection and contribute to faster healing.

Which homeopathic remedies help?

Physical symptoms are described below. Choose a homeopathic remedy for mucous membranes that best suits your situation.


Irritated, reddened conjunctiva when exposed to light, combined with itching and tears.


All bright red bleeding, even from unseen sources.

Oral mucosa

Potassium chloratum

Sometimes painful blistering and white-spotted, rounded deposits on the mucous membrane of the cheeks, tongue, inner lip and gums (aphthae), also with fungal infections (thrush). The tongue shows a thick grey-white coating on the back. In women, increased white flow occurs without any other side effects.


White, painful specks / aphthae on the mucous membranes, especially in the mouth (mouth sores) and in the vagiena, here also with strong white discharge. Stubborn bark forms on the nasal mucous membranes when you have a cold. Irritated itching of the conjunctiva, as in hay fever.

Sulfuric acid

Painful mouth ulcers in connection with bad breath and increased salivation.

Nasal mucosa


The nasal mucosa is extremely dry, itchy and crusts form overnight. It secretes thick green-yellow, foul-smelling secretion (so-called “stinky nose”).

True great event

Severe tickling occurs at the transitions to the skin. Dry, irritated mucous membranes in the nose with a strong feeling of tingling and increased sneezing. Weeping, swollen eyes with reddened lid rims.

Magnesium chloratum

The nose serves as the guiding symptom here. You have to blow your nose a lot, but your nose is constantly blocked. You smell and taste bad. Congested ears and ear infections are also common.

Small Atemwege


Burning irritation of all mucous membranes, as if too spicy food or pepper had been eaten in excess, often combined with chills. The ears and nose secrete a purulent discharge, while the larynx may tingle and cause a loud barking cough.

Kalium sulfuricum

Inflammation of the mucous membranes, accompanied by yellow, viscous secretions. The eyes and airways are particularly affected. Women complain of increased cycle-independent discharge (fluoride albus).

Hydrastis canadensis

Mainly chronically inflamed mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract, in which a thick, stringy, white-yellowish mucus is secreted. Also for aphthae in the mouth and constantly recurring conjunctivitis of the eyes. Constant itching of the vagienal mucosa with profuse white discharge.

Kalium carbonicum

The mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract are extremely dry and show a burning pain.

Causes of mucosal diseases

Diseases of the mucous membranes occur as part of infections or as side effects of drugs. These are unpleasant and sometimes very painful diseases, depending on which mucous membranes are affected.

Symptoms of mucosal diseases

The symptoms vary, depending on which mucous membranes are affected by the inflammation:

  • Runny nose and cough (colds)
  • Watery eyes (conjunctivitis, hay fever)
  • Vomit
  • Diarrhea
  • Aphthae, bad breath
  • Mundsoor
  • vagienal discharge
  • cystitis
