Second Opinion - Asthma Bronchitis - 5 year Old


My 4 year old son is suffering from Asthma since he was 1 year old. The asthma episode typically starts as a cold, leading to wheezing, coughing and throwing up whitish fluid. Allergy testing (skin test) indicated reactions to soy , potato (lab was not sure) & dog dander. It is generally worse in the afternoons / evening. He has been on albuterol & pulmicort for asthma management.

He is a restless child, active child who likes chocolates, cold drinks / ice cream. Speech development was delayed but is now talkative and very smart.

We started homeopathy about 3 months. At this time he was pushing kids at school and had only limited interaction with other children. He also had congested nose / sleep apnea.

The homeopath prescribed Kali Mur and Calcarea Carb 200(fortnightly). She recommended Carbo vegetablis when he had an episode. While his apnea/congestion / aggressive behavior has subsided , the frequency / severity of his asthmatic attacks have increased. For symptomatic relief, Carbo vegetablis, bronia, hepa sulph, spongia tosta were not effective and we fell back on bronchodilators.

After a review, homeopath suggested Tuberculinum 1M administered once and Antimonium tartaricum 6c (as needed) for symptomatic relief. My son is now breathless for the past week and has lost weight. His asthma symptoms have changed qualitatively (since Calcarea) - sudden onset of severe cough and lot of chest congestion that he cannot bring up. It is worse when he lies down and at night after 3:00 am. He also cries for almost everything...

Has Homeopathy failed in my son's case??

Thx. for your patience,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Homeopathy has not failed, but the medicine for sure has not given the much needed relief.

I would suggest you to try ANTIMONIUM ARS 30 - to be given thrice daily for a week. If this does not help, will need to give a constitutional medicine.
