Dear Sirs,

My daughter is four years old. She had cold last week and due to cleaning of nose again and again she got a boil under the nose and it has broken now with watery discharge. The skin has become red and it is painful also. I had applied boroline at nights and also antiseptic powder but not worked.

Please suggest some remedy. Please reply she is crying a lot so that i can get the medicine as soon as possible.

Thanks and regards.

Symptoms strongly suggests herpes simplex eruption.

Please tell me your location and weather conditions.

For now you should give her, Ranunculus Bulbosus 30C 3-4 pills 4 hourly.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear Sir,

We stay at Pune, Maharashtra. Weather is rainy and cold now a days.

sfreya last decade
Okay, Ranunculus Bulbosus works great in rainy conditions.

You should go immediately for a homeopathic medical store and purchase Ranunculus Bulbosus 30C and Natrum Sulph 30C each in liquid.

Your child has developed a very common, but at times very painful and rarely can result in serious outcome.

If your child develop any headache then it is serious sign.

It is contagious too i.e. other family member can also get this.

All family members should also take 3 dose of Ranunculus Bulbosus at 10 minute interval aslo.

If you have any question, you should ask mainly regarding medicines and dosing.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear Sir,

Thanks for your speedy reply.
I will get the medicine but please state clearly about how many drops and freuency of medicine which has to be given....

what dose one dose mean for child and for adult

sfreya last decade
2-3 drops in plain water 4 hourly for child.

2-3 drops in plain water three dose at 10 minute interval within half hour i.e. 2-3 drops at 5 pm, 5:10 pm, and 5:20 pm.

Rannuculus Bulbosus medicine should be used first.

Natrum Sulph I advise to purchase for reserve if this medicines fails to bring an improvement.

For now, you should update your child's condition every time you ask or tell anything.

I have had several bouts of shingles which is a form of herpes plus some family members get cold sores. We use Lysine salve found in co-op or health sores. It worked better than the shingles medicine and states on the package is used for cold sores. Didn't have age restrictions on tube.

Have used for lengthy periods of time with no side effects.

sfreya last decade
Tell me what medicines and for what.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear sir,

The medicine is symphytum 200 c only one dose is to be given for the opacity in her eye. Thats all. The medicine was due so i asked u otherwise we can delay giving her this medicine. What is your opinion? Please convey.
sfreya last decade
There is no problem with Symphytum so you can give this as your doctor advised.

I asked you to notify about your child's condition every time when you post a reply, but you are not following this instruction. It is very important otherwise there may be failure to improvement.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear sir,

Sorry for no following your instructions. Actually she was in school when i posted the reply but i should have update at night about the.status.

today morning there is sort of crust formation on the place ad looks like a little pus has formed because the colour of crust is yellowish.

I have given the medicinene in the morning but 4hr interval is difficult to follow since she is in school for 5-6 hr.

I am following 4hr interval difference when at home.

I am trying
sfreya last decade
Okay report at night.

With how many total eruption and what in state.

Yellow pus is not good sign. It means eruption got infected with bacteria too while caused by virus.

Try to cut nails of child and wash hands frequently.

Bring any Calandula homeopathic onitment and put some Rannucular Bulbosa drops in it and apply on eruptions both open and closed.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear Sir,

I forgot to mention that it was apparent that there were 4-5 very small boils under the nose and on the chin there were 2-3 small ones. she is not allowing to clean it also. I will get calendula cream today itself.

sfreya last decade
You are not following instructions and not taking the condition serious. very bad.

Go school and bring child back if possible.

New eruption indicating that child's immunity is very weak for this virus and homeopathic medicine doses are not sufficient to control the virus.

She needs rest and plenty of water and of course extra care.

You feel bad about my such reply, but whenever any parents takes lightly child's illness it irritates me. sorry
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear Sir,

I value your comment but It is not that i am taking my child's illness lightly. I have faith in homeopathy and i avoid giving her antibiotics since just after birth she was on ventilator and had high doses of antibiotics.

I will show her to her peditrician in the evening and administer her with whatever is prescribed by the doctor.

Should I stop giving Rannucular Bulbosa or continue and apply calendula as u said or not??

I appreciate your concern.

sfreya last decade
Your some action indicated you have taken it lightly as you sent child to school.

You should continue what i ask except Calendula as your Pediatrician may give antiviral medicines along antiviral ointment for closed lesions and antibacterial ointment for open lesions if the diagnosis is clear of herpes simplex.

You should ask about diagnosis.

However, I had seen no great difference if treated with antiviral in my personal experience, but as herpes simplex can cause encephalitis i.e. brain involvement so I leave the decision upon parents.

You should avoid sun exposure until lesions are completely healed.
Dr. Rakesh Km Lko last decade
Dear Sir,

It was not clear what you wanted to convey. I am giving the medicine and will show to the doctor in the evening. Thanks

Will update u abt her condition
sfreya last decade
Dear Sir,

yesterday night we went to show her to pediatrician who said there is nothing to worry and gave a syrup which is anti allergic and an antiseptic cream. So today morning i got appointment of a skin specialist. It is far off so i got late in updating. The doctor said it is bacterial infection and gave an ointment called T Bact which is antibacterial.

I am continuing your medicines also.I have removed little crust and it is pinkish in colour i mean today it is not reddish.Will update again.
