The ABC Homeopathy Forum

To Dr. Kadwa - Cough/Cold/Distress/Skin rash

Dr. Kadwa,

You suggested remedy for earlier posts. This for my younger daughter. Pl. suggest.

Sex: F Age: 4 Yrs

Frequently attacked by cold, cough and heavy distress; from her birth. Initially she was given allopathic medicines – antibiotics, syrups and nebulizations.

She also has skin rash over buttocks (both right and left) for about 3 years. We used diapers earlier. We stopped using diapers from the last one year. But still the rash is there.

6 months ago, approached a homeopath. He treated for asthma. She was given Cacl. Carb. 10 M weekly one dose for about 4 months. But not found useful.

Applied Calendula ointment – almost daily on the buttocks for rash. If we don't apply calendula or any other moisturizer the rash becomes more thick, reddish black patch which is very hard to feel and with itching sensation. There is no discharge from that area. It is very dry. The skin rash is only in that area; but no where else on the body.

Homeopath said skin disease associated with asthma can not be treated easily – is that correct?

3 weeks ago, she got pneumonia used allopathic medicines and cured in 5 days.

Her weight is 18.5 Kgs. She is overweight. She is very healthy, very active baby and naughty.

She feels itching all over the body, at night times, before sleep and ask me to scratch lightly – almost everyday.

Cough/cold/distress is triggered by - Water change, consuming cold items, cold weather.

Sometimes it starts with distress and then cough comes.

Distress is more when she is awake; In sleep it would come down to some extent.

Consuming fruits, citrus fruits, curds – would aggravate the suffering.

She is very bold, very naughty, very active.

She likes to eat hot items than sweat items.

She craves for milk.

She drinks lot of water.

Her hunger is more compared to the children of same age.

Her bowel movement is normal.

Her elder sister is suffering from bronchitis (but no skin diseases).

Pl. suggest a remedy for her.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Forgot to mention...Local homeopath used to give her frequently - Ars. Alb, Phos, Mec. Sol. - for cough, cold.

Dr. Kadwa sir, She started coughing from the last about 6 to 8 hrs. It started lightly; and now gradually the severity is increasing.
She has wheesing also now.

I think this started because of water change. We went to a function yesterday. There she has taken some water. Also, she has taken some water in a hotel yesterday.

Pl. consider this also, when you suggest the remedy.

Thanks a lot and Best Regards.

Please give her three doses of Hepar Sulph 200c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 10 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
kadwa last decade
Thank you Dr. Kadwa. I will give Hepar Sulph 200c as suggested and get back to you after 15 days.

Best Regards.
Libra1010 last decade
Dr. Kadwa, I have given 3 doses of Hepar Sulph 200c today. Before starting these doses itself she has cough. Now the cough is increased. Phlegm is also there. I am worried that - as usual, this may lead to distress and fever, in the next day or two. What should I do? Is there any homeopathic medicine? Shall I use any boichemic combination like BC-6? Or shall I go for allopathic? Pl. suggest.

Thanks and Best Regards.
Libra1010 last decade
Continuation to above...

Or should I use BC-2? She got pnemonia 3 weeks ago (x-ray showed pnemoic patch; more on the left side), used allopathic and got cured.

Earlier (before this pnemonia case) when she got cough like this x-ray was taken. It was clear. Doctor said it was asthma.

Pl. suggest what should be done?
Libra1010 last decade
How is she now? whether you gave her bc 2?
kadwa last decade
She has cough with phlugm and distress. She is not coughing when she sleeps. No distress in sleep. Light cold is also there. But not running nose. Pl. suggest.
Libra1010 last decade
I have not given her any medicine till now.
Libra1010 last decade
Pl. read above two posts.
Libra1010 last decade
Please give her 1 pellet each of the following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for 15 days.
kali mur 6x
natrum sulph 6x
ferrum phos 6x
kadwa last decade
Dr. Kadwa,

I just glanced through book about these medicines. I don't find them relavant to this case - cough, distress, cold. I am very sorry and correct me if I am wrong.
Libra1010 last decade
Tissue salts work at nutritional plane. So these can't be selected like a homeo remedy on the basis of totality of symptoms. Ferrum Phos is a general tonic and helps in fever like conditions. Kali Mur helps in URTI. Natrum Sulph is used for cold, cough and asthmatic affections in children. You should not give silicea 6x as silicea antidotes hepar.
kadwa last decade
Thanks Dr. Kadwa. I started giving her these tablets.

What is URTI? How is this relavant in our context?

She has distress. Its increasing and decreasing. Nat Sulph help us in this? Any other remedy for distress?

Best Regards.
Libra1010 last decade
i think that by distress you mean wheezing, breathlessness etc. These three tissue salts should help here. The main remedy that is working in the background is Hepar Sulph. Kali mur acts on the respiratory and digestive systems. It is better not to give more than 3 tissue salts at a time. i think that these three should be sufficient.

URTI Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
kadwa last decade
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Status update:

I have given three doses the three salts yesterday and continuing today also.

Last night light fever of 99 F has come. It has come down to normal after the third dose. Now she does not have cough, cold and fever. There is slight breathlessness and wheezing.

I will continue the same three salts. Pl. let me know if we need to add any more. Thanks a lot.

Best Regards.
Libra1010 last decade
Please continue with the three tissue salts.
kadwa last decade
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

I have been giving the above three salts to my daughter from the last 6 days ( 3 times a day). Yesterday she coughed a lot. Today she is coughing on and off; she has shortness of breath also on and off.

She is not eating well.

Next week her school starts (LKG). I want this to be cured completely before that.

What do you suggest? Shall I use BC-2? Or any other remedy?

Thanks and Regards.
Libra1010 last decade
Cont..to above...

Dear Kadwa, I started using BC-2 (SBL Product). Is it ok? Its combination is:

Kali Phos - 3x
Mag Phos - 3x
Nat Mur - 6x
Nat Sulph - 3x

Indicattions given on the box: Breathlessnss/breathing difficulty with yellow sputum, worse in the evening, accompanied by cough or troublesome flatutulence. Dyspnoea aggravated by food or exertion.

90% of symptoms are matching. So, I started using this.

Pl. suggest if I am in the right direction.

Best Regards.

There is one herbal product called as Shwasari Pravahi sold by Swami Ramdev's Divya Pharmacy that is indicated for bronchitis, wheezing, blocked nose, sneezing etc. You may give her the indicated children dose of Shwasari Pravahi with same quantity of water whenever she has acute problems.
i have also dicussed Swami Ramdev's package for asthama and allergy in the following thread
Sitopaladi Choorna with honey is very effective for cough and it is also expected to improve her appetite.

You are also advised to consider this package as an option.

You know that homeo remedies can't be given with attaining a particular physilogical objective. This approach may result in the remedy proving and other symptoms may crop up.
kadwa last decade
Dear Dr. Kadwa, Thanks for the response.

The situation is not severe. So, would like to continue on BC-2 for two days and observe. I am giving her BC-2, once for 3 hrs, 2 pellets each time.

If this does not work I would go for Shwasari Pravahi.

Thanks a lot for your help.
Libra1010 last decade
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

My daughter's breathlessness, cough and cold are cured with BC-2. I have given for 4 days; one dose for every 3 hrs; 2 pellets each time. Would like to continue for another 1 or 2 days - 4 times/day.

I will report you the effect of Hepar Sulp after 4 or 5 days. Thanks for your help.
Libra1010 last decade
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Its 15 days after I have given Hepar Sulph to my daughter. A week after I have given Hepar Sulph, the rash has become more reddish and area also increased. I think, its aggrevated. Pl. find the aggrevated pic. below.
Libra1010 last decade
cont. to above...

Pic was not attached for some reason. Anyway, now the rash area is little bit reduced and it bacame blackish.

I read about Hepar Sulph. It is more indicated when there is discharge from the skin. In this case there is no discharge.

Pl. suggest what should be done next.
Libra1010 last decade
Please give her 2 pellets of bc 20 thrice a day for 7 days and see how that affects.
