Bronchitis for 14 week baby 2bronchitis in baby 1


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Baby Bronchitis pls help..

I have an 11 month old son, just given him a dose of Ant. Art. as his symtpoms are a pretty close fit although I'm not sure it's exactly right.. could someone help pls

The cough is still quite dry and spasmodic but occassionally rattling, whichever way it sounds it always comes in bouts (fits of coughing) and he is exhausted. He holds his head and ear as if in pain all over head.. head bursting pain.

He's had a temperature of 102 - 103 which has now gone down through the night using cold damp application. He is currently taking sips of cold water(room temp.)but refusing milk or foods.

His temperament is generally quiet but anxious when ill.. better for being held, although struggles until falls asleep in arms, because of pain and coughing fits, respiration is difficult during coughing and after until settled again.

There seems to be alot of mucous in his chest which he has vomited once at high fever last night. I then gave him a dose of Ant. Art. 30c. Since then I've given only calpol for temperature and obvious discomfort.

Not sleeping well, waking frequently due to all above.

Pls someone advise he is so poorly and I need some dosage guidelines aswell as remedy. I think Ant. Art is a close fit.. been looking at Bryonia also due to irritability when ill. But only have Ant. Art 30c.

Could someone come with suggestion Remedy and dosing guildeines? He's a big baby, very stocky not fat.. tall and stocky, brown eyes light brown hair, rosey cheeked.. about 14 kg!

Anyone suggestions in addition. Thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
if the cough and respiration characteristics, the tongue and the modalities match ANTIM TART, you can give him 30c every 4 to 6 hours till the symptoms relieve.

if no response after 4 to 6 doses, you can look at PHOSPHORUS 30C three doses at 4 hours intervals.

Thanks Rishimba,
Not much improvement actually, cough is still dry spasmodic. He had mucous through nasal passages which was yellow and sticky to clear and runny behind that.

Temperature being managed with tylenol suppositries.. and he only thirsts for small frequent sips of water.

Exhaustion, sunken eyes and pale.

Have given 3 doses of Ant. Art since last night at 4-6 hr intervals. Think maybe change?? There is lack of thirst and chilliness in Ant. Art. whereas Joshua has had fever, fever down now.

Think Ant. Art. started something should I switch now which one? Better in arms than left alone, Phos.??

Thanks much.

look at pulsatilla as well..

it has lack of thirst and yellow cough.

for children its a safest remedy for any kind of ENT infection.

Pls help.. ! Next Remedy??

Took him to the paed. GP. it's Croup. So looked up rems. for croup.. Spongia was definitely best fit, whole picture fits this type of croup. However, have now given him 4th dose (at 30c - 6 hr intervals). Responded slightly each dose but still croup remains.

Obviously don't want to continue with Spongia after a 4th dose, not safe right? as he may end up proving??

General disposition is brighter after spongia and then sleepy. But on waking there is still same pain and rasping and difficulty breathing, loss of voice due to larynx, coughing fits and breathlessness, basically all symptoms return.

He is taking sips of water and the ameliorates, food and usual formula seem to aggravate. He is weak.

Any suggestions on how on I go on from here? He has just gone down to bed following 4th dose Spongia.

Many thanks. Rm.

since he is taking little sips of water at a time, you can try ARS ALB 12C every hour hours for a day only.

report after 24 hours.

Thanks for help Rishimba,

My baby boy is doing alot better, his symptoms have changed.. he is sleeping through the night now, the spongia worked well, I then gave sips of Ars Alb 12c as you suggested yesterday.. Now it is a different picture.. lots of mucous coming through nose greenish to clear colour, this is good I know. The cough is still really bothering him but no longer a croup cough it is now a rattling chesty, mucous cough as if the last of the mucous on his chest needs to expel but cannot.. he cries out but his larynx is perhaps still swollen because I can't hear his cries (like laryngitis.. loss of voice).. poor mite ! But he has an appetite for food again, just banana and bland stuff, very small amounts. Still giving cough syrup to relieve pain in throat.

So not quite there yet.. any suggestions on a 'clear up' remedy..??
Thanks, Rm
