Dr Sameer, need help for daughters allergy

My 7 year old daughter has been suffering since the last 4 years with allergic condition which varies. In the milder form it is nose flow and itchy nose. When the condition detoriate it takes the form of continuous cough & wheezing which requires nebulizer. We have even tried out Homeopathic treatment, but the same has not been very useful so far. I shall try and describe her ailment below :

History & Summary Description
She did not have this problem till she was 4 years, after which she started developing this. I ( her father ) have also had this problem, though not as severe. Her problem usually starts in the month of Sept/Oct with the season change and it persists till about Dec start when it subsides. Again she has problems starting Feb which last till April/May. Following the start of the autumn or spring, she starts to have problem of stuffed nose ( typically one side ), which she tries to clear off. The discharge is watery and her nose is very itchy which she keeps rubbing. During such times, she is prone to also developing a Sore and Red throat which occasionally pains. If the problem persists then the mucous becomes Greenish-yellow. Regular gargling with warm Salt water relieves the problem temporarily.
As the season progresses, the nasal allergy subsides but she develops cough & wheeze starting in the evening hours ( about 5 P.M ) and during the morning hours ( 4 A.M ). I have to give her inhalers ( Ashtalin & corticosteroid ) regularly during the season. During the last year she had to take antibiotics & nebulizer at least 6 times since Oct 08 till April 09.


Nature of the child :
# Affectionate, cheerful and sharp child.
# Very active & attentive.
# Can get upset quickly over seeming small things ( like loosing a game or even getting a very minor scolding ) - this upsets her mood. Usually does not last for long.
# Amenable to reasoning when upset, any scolding makes her more upset.

ALLERGY : Throat & Nose.

Time : Early morning when she gets up ( at about 6:30 A.M ).

Symptoms :
# Sneezing when she gets up in the morning.
# Nose ( typically one ) becomes blocked with watery discharge. She finds it irritating and keeps blowing the nose hard.
# Sometimes she develops a Sore and Red Throat with pain.

Triggers :
- Change in Temparature during evening or morning.
- Seasonal : troublesome months are Sept/Oct or March/April.
- Running Fan at a High speed during the night or evening time.

ALLERGY : Continous Cough & Wheezing
What we have noticed is that her allergy typically starts of in the form described above ( nasal ) - over time it changes to coughing and wheezing.
Time : Early morning when she gets up ( at about 6:30 A.M ).
Evening from about 5 P.M onwards.

Symptoms :
# Continous Cough accompanied by Wheeze.
# Usually there is no expectoration (cough is dry ) except in case she gets a full blown infection. If that happens then she coughs up mucous which is greenish Yellow in colour.
# Her upper arm ( around the biceps ) becomes cold. Placing a warm hand makes her feel better.

Triggers :
- Change in Temparature - troublesome months are Sept/Oct or March/April.
- Running Fan at a High speed during the night or evening time.
- In case she has had some food outside ( in B'day parties ) like potato chips ( which are spicy ) etc.
- Dusty Playgrounds.
- Running in playgrounds.
- Emotions - crying etc.

Please advise. Also let me know if she can take the Homeopathhic medicines along with her normal Inhalers?

Hi pydelhi, I am not a doctor but I was surprised on reading your post because what you have described is the exact case of my 5 yr old son.

Anyway.. for my son , Astha Aid tablets worked very well and I can see a definite improvement in him . Dosage is one tablet 3 times a day for children. There is a pamphlet in the medicine carton which you can read to see how it works. I have to mention here that alongwith this tablet, my son is also taking some other homeopathy meds prescribed by our doctor , but only after starting Astha Aid we could feel the difference. Infact If it does work you can keep aside your inhalers and nebulizers which is my personal experience with my son .. All the best

Again above post was just a suggestion and please do consult / ask your homeopath about this medicine if you want to start on it. Like I said I am not a doctor but just thought I'd share my experience with you because of the similarity of our kids problems.

Thank you. We have been trying Homeopathic treatment for her.
Have tried at least 2 doctors, but any improvements have been very marginal.

Can you please let me know :
- Are Ashta Aid tablets available on any Homeopathic Store?
- How do I know that these are safe for my child?
As you mentioned, I suppose that these need to be taken after consulation of the Homeopathic doctor as well.
