Enlarged tonsils and constant cough

My daughter is 21 and for the last 7 weeks developed very large tonils and persistant cough. She has never had problems before; mild allergies maybe. She has been on several rouunds of antibotics, had blood tests with idicated problems. She saw ENT who put her on 9 nine days of high dose prednisone, with no changes and last resort clindamycin which shows no real results nearing completion. The last resort is removing the tonils when school is out in June. Any suggestions at this point? I am somewhat famaliar with alternative methods.

I am sorry, my typing was poor. The blood tests indicated no problems.

removal of tonsils is not a good idea at this age.

please dont worry, your daughter can be cured with homeo remedies.

if you have faith in homeopathy, you can write the case details.

rest leave it to the homeopaths here to suggest a remedy.

The cough has begun to decrease; maybe the saline spray helped. The tonsils are still very large, so the last antibiotic round did not work. Any recommendations?

Hepar Sulph 2ooc

Dr Tahira last decade
I am 31 years old male.before few month my left tonsil are enlarged.my wisdom teeth have some pain.i am feeling pain in my ear.
satikant last decade
dr. tahira's recommendation is correct but i want to start with HEPAR SULPH 30C and repeat it every 4 to 6 hours till the swelling is reduced and the pain during swallowing is gone.

200C may be given if the cough still continues after swelling and pain subsides.
rishimba last decade
I will keep you posted as to the progress. We have started on the above at 30c. The cough did stop earlier and also have her on some other natural items as well that will improve the immune system.
