Frequent cold, cough & wheezing

Hi all

Help and advice required.
My son is 2.6 years old. we are residing in bangalore.
He has a tendency to catch cold very frequently and off late ended
in subsequent ear and throat infection. Till date he has had atleast
6 times ear and throat infection , mostly together.
This february he had a lower respiratory track infection and was hospitalized
for severe infection and wheezing.
Later this june this cold accompanied with wheezing reoccured.
He started going to a play class for 1 hour and he started catching infections frequently.
So we had to stop him from going out. As long as he is indoors he is fine.
The problem happens only when is exposed to school. Since both of us are working he really needs
to go out and have some activity. we live in a construction site so i dont let him go down to play.
Since that dust disturbs him a lot.
Couple of months back i started of with homeopathy treatment for him.
Biochemic salts like BC2 and BC6 along with tonsilat is being given to him.
Since then i started of with the medicine i feel the gradual improvement.
Apart from that i have the entire baby kit with me i stopped allopathy 4 months back and he is completely
in homeo medicine for all cold, cough, wheezing and fever. He respond well to these medicines.
Am looking for a long term solution to prevent this wheezing in future

His nature
1) every time he gets a cold it takes a full cycle of cough and takes atleast 10 days to get well
2) not a fussy eater , healthy otherwise and active
3) normal height weight
4)scared to go in dark
5)had eczema when he was 2 months old
6)does not like to be covered during sleep
7) sweats in his head
8)loves chocolate and sweet- at present i have stopped all this
9)likes to play around with kids , he is ok in terms of friendliness to strangers.

My questions are
1) should he be kept indoors while the treatment is going on, should i not send him to school
for even twice a week.
2) do these biochemic salts have effect if so what is the period generally
3)Kids geting cold is acceptable but every time it ends in a wheezing, does bc2 have effect on this
4) any other suggestions, your input is valuable to me.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
rgot to just mention one thing:
If he goes to school for a couple of days, late evening he starts sneezing continuously..
i try giving alliumcepa...but next day it becomes a severe cold and then cough ends in a wheezing.
This has been a standard pattern of cold for him.

Thanks for the response .
will certainly do that.
I just have one question, for my son's tonsil gland enlargement i am giving him baryta carb once a day. Can i give this Cal Carb along with that. or should i stop bartya and give only cal carb..
aarush last decade
calc.carb will also help him in tonsolitis for the time being please stop other remedies.

My humble request to people risiding in Bangalore is they should cover their body with warm cloth morning and evening, even during sleep one should cover their head properly especially people who are prone to cold. a Draft of cold air will relapse your cold and bring cough.]
Avoid soft drinks, cocacola, ice cream , curd and butter if you are susceptible to cold. The temperature here is day time warm and night is cold and humid with lot of fog in the air till 8.30AM. In no season a susceptible person can tolerate all the above cold beverages and drinks. Follow strictly and be healthy with out antibiotics or else it is your body you live in your own way.

I suggest you to try the following combination of medicine.. This will act promptly..

Aconite 30
Bryonia 30
Ippecac 30
Gelsemium 30
Eucalyptus 30

Mix all the medicine in liquid form in equal proportion.
Please Give to your son (Age 2.6 years) 5 to 10 drops of liquid in a teaspoonful of water, every 4 hours, when the ailment is seen.. Within a couple of days the ailment should disappear.
As a prophylactic also even is there is no ailment seen, you may give this medicine to him twice daily.

Always.. First dose early in the morning on empty stomach. Last dose at bed time..

Many similar patients have excellent results with this medicine.

Thanks for the suggesstion.
Right now he just got out of wheezing. It has been 10 days since he started off with cold. Right now his nose is blocked and slight greenish mucus keeps coming for the past 4 days, i had given hepasulph.
Now from yesterday he started coughing once in a while and while running.
Can i go ahead with the above combination of medicines or any other suggesstions for this condition..

I am also staying in Bangalore,The real culprit is Bangalore weather( call it good weather onlt if you dont have any allergy :)).Bangalore has lot of greenery and frequent change of weather and unschedul rain.My first advise is to change the city If you can.As I also face allergic rihinities problem after coming to bnagalore, My daughter was born here , she also suffer from frequent cold and cough during night,When she was 2.5 years old the cough wnet so seveare that doctor gave him Asthalin Inhaler,after that we started Homeopathy since then she is fine, but we continue medicin to build resistance,however we avoid inggivr her Fruit / juice during rain season or chaning weather.Finally we are planning to change the city to Pune/chennai/hyderabad where weather is predictabel and not much pollon.

Regarding not sending him to school is impossible, more over child we get infection when they start going out side in initial stages,after that it should come to normal, keeping child in door always will hamper his natural growth,As I am in IT waiting for Job market to come to normal to chaneg the City :)

hi Arush,
Just came across your posting on your child's problem.
First thing, you and your son are not alone to suffer this in BLR, I mean there are thousands which includes my daughter too, but she is 4years and 3months.I dont have to list her problem here cos she has exactly the same symptoms what your son's got except for ent problems.
Every year she gets this damnit wheezing attack after a normal runny nose and sneezing and has to be hospitalized for at least 48hours for continous neb and asthalin thru IV. Its very painful to see her taking the IV and she becomes weak looking,gets dark circles under eyes,becomes very sensitive,adamant, and once she is out from the hospital she has to follow the drill of medicines and routine, she is prescribed to take Duloin 2 puffs, Seroflow 2puffs apart from allegra sryup and stay indoor while other kids go out have fun, it is frustrating! Now,we want to consult a homeopathy specialist to see whether it can make her immune and be like a normal kid as she grows. From your posting it looks like even after taking homeopathy your son is still facing the cold and cough.. he just started those medications? and how long does he have to follow? is he completely out of alopathy?
And if he is already taking the specialist advise and medicines I think you should not take any medicine without his Dr's permission(like an advice of medicines from maheshkamdar)
We are planning to her to a homeopathy Dr near Infantry rd, opp to SBI(tomorrow or soon) pls post your coments and share your results, like I said you are alone to go thru this,,,but I guess we also need to support our kids morally and let them have some outdoor fun too. Happy parenting!
