Constant post-nasal drip & coldI am a 30-yr female suffering from a constant post-nasal drip which is more pronounced after 3a.m./ early mornings. The mucuous is clear, egg-like consistency and I have to keep sucking in as it keeps accumulating at the root of the nose. It often flares into a cold (atleast one a month if not more), wherein I have an almost constant watery nasal discharge. Allium Cepa helps in these times.
I also have a small extra orifice/ abscess (size of a hair pin) over the right ear lobe which oozes yellow smelly mucus. ENT has diagnosed it as an extra duct which would have to be operated/ stitched from within.
I seem to have a pulsatilla constiution as it helped me a lot with PMS (dose 1M). It also helped with the skin allergies (red, small eruptions oozed sticky fluid) though was not completely cured.
I have taken Kali bich 200c. Whenever taken it reduces post-nasal drip significantly and also almost completely dries up the secretions from th ear lobe - just that I have to take it repeatedly every 7-10 days. So far have taken it for nearly 2 months.
When I consulted it local homepath, he suggested Kalibich doesnot seem to be completely curing it and asked me to use Hydrastatis 200c (which dried up the skin allergy, though sometimes there are fresh eruptions accompanied with itching) which did not help with post-nasal drip. Now he recommended silicea which again is not as helpful. Infact I now have cold more often - once every 10 days or so.
I must add, now the post-nasal drip is at times clear with yellow pieces or sometimes entirely pale yellow.
Can you pls suggest what should I do. Continue kalibich 200c or try 1M? OR try someother medicine?
