Need help for my 5-yr-old niece

Hello doctors, can anyone help me help my niece Annie?

She is 5 years old, and has suffered from respiratory problems all her life.

She has had, and still has constant coughs and colds, and ear infections. She has had her tonsils and adenoids removed, but still sounds like she has obstructed breathing - very noisy breathing, particularly at night, can hardly breathe through the nose, and suffers poor sleep as a result

She has blonde curly hair and blue eyes. Average height for her age and healthy weight. She is a bright girl but has been a bit slow in speech development, not clear speech. She gets circles under her eyes and mottled skin, and looks pale and tired.

Annie is very active, full of energy, never stops unless she is unwell. She is boisterous and confident and loud, and has been known to have bad tantrums. She can be a bit aggressive when playing. She's quite a show-off and likes attention.

She loves to dance, loves watching dancing and loves music.

She has regular, big bowel movements, and frequent urination. She has phases of having a sore tummy and loose bowel movements.

She loves strawberries and tomatoes, cheese, and sweets/chocolate.

She often bites her tongue

I am happy to answer any other questions, and I really appreciate anyone's help.

Thank you,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Forgot to mention she also grinds her teeth in her sleep, very loudly.

Describes her emotional and mental symptoms, physical trauma/emotional trauma/, when her problems first started and condition around that time, what she does not like to eat/drink, and her thermal reaction i.e. cannot stand hot weather or cold or which she tolerate and feel better. I would be happy to try to help your girl, but there may be some delay in response due to busy schedule.

Problems first started when she was 7-months old after a trip to the UK from Australia (long-haul flights).

Hope this helps,
Many thanks,

I strongly believe that this little girl will do great on Arsenicum Album 30c in liquid form.

Arrange this medication and then asked for dosing, do not self medicate this medicine on her.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Hi Dr Lko,

Many thanks for your response and diagnosis, I really appreciate it.

The only Arsenicum Album 30c in liquid form I can find to order is from a homeopathic supplier of remedies for pets - is this ok?

' from a homeopathic supplier of remedies for pets - is this ok? '

I have no idea about such supply as I am from Lko (Lucknow, India).
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade

Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Hi Dr Lko,

I have received the Arsenicum Album 30c liquid (for cats and dogs and other small animals...I hope it's ok for a child?!).

Please advise on dosing.

Many thanks,

Loobyloo35 last decade
First of all i would like you to make a list of symptoms she is suffering at present

1. Cough.
2. Runny nose.
3. Watery eyes
4. Obstructed breathing
5. Noisy Breathing
6. Poor Sleep
7. Poor speech development
8. Circles in her eyes.
9. Sore tummy.
10. Loose movements.
11. Bites tongue.
12. Irritability.
13. Sore legs.
14. Negative attitude.
15. any other.

Copies all these and gave them number on the scale of 0/10 for example you feel she is at present very irritable gave then gave him 8/10 or very very irritable 10/10.

We have to assess her condition after the medication so grade symptoms as possible keep them in a document and paste with your every post and make changes which you seems have changed.

Start treatment with Few drops 2-3 drops of Arsenic 30c in a tablespoon water three times at 10 minute interval only for one day.

so 2-3 drops at three times at 10 minute interval.

If you have any confusion, please do not hesitate to call before starting treatment.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Hi Dr Lko,

My sister is reluctant to give Annie the Arsenic 30c because it says it's for cats and dogs on the label! But I don't know where else to get this remedy in liquid form.

Can you advise?

Thank you,
