Herbal Remedies for Phlebitis
Phlebitis is an inflammation of the lining of a vein. Phlebitis is most commonly seen in the legs, and can be due to irritation of the vein, as with an IV, infection or a blood clot.
An herbal treatment can include vein tonics and anti-inflammatories for the veins. Homeopathic arnica in the form of drops or pills internally or as a cream applied externally has also been recommended for this ailment.
