Chronic Bronchitis in 2 year oldChronic bronchitis/cough
-child robust, brown haired about 18 kg, good natured, energetic usually
-worse( dry climate, summer.
Condition comes on after catching common cold and cough, gradually worsens due to extreme damp climate and damp living environment, we live beside a river too.
-restless sleep, sleeps on stomach
-weepy at times
-thirst for water, cool
This is his second bout of bronchitis in 6 weeks. Gave him Hepar Sulph 30 ch and Mercurio Biodeto 30 ch (3 times a day) for first seasonal bout of cough/cold becoming bronchitis. Cleared up lungs and condition nicely, but also took him to warm, coastal environment for 2 weeks. Upon return to cool, rainy mountains, cough slowly returned and gradually got worse until bronchitis like symptoms returned. Possible change into allergic bronchitis due to damp, cool, dusty, moldy environment.
Now taking Hepar Sulph 30 ch (2 x day) with Senega mother tincture (5 drops, 2 x day).
Condition lingering. Worried about him developing allergic bronchitis or asthma. Would appreciate any ideas, suggestions.
