Toddler with cough and chest infection

I am seeking help for my 21month old son who has always been a healthy child except for when teething, during this time he is in extreme pain, high fever, develops a cold etc. I have recently given him Chammomilla as he fits the picture to a T and he seems to be responding to this.

I would like some advice with regard to recent bouts of chest infections that he has had which he has been prescribed antiobiotics for. I am concerned that these are becoming recurrent and I do not want him to continue to be prescribed these. I am after a preventative homeopathic cure.

My son is still breastfed and i would describe him as an extremely independent child - has always been this way and has to do everything by himself. he is generally fit and well and has only become ill with chest infection following difficult bouts of teething where he runs high fevers - 39C+ and develops a bad cold with disturbed sleep. nothing consoles him during this time and he just wants to be held constantly and wants to nurse all the time day and night. Except for when teething he is a very happy child and sociable although he always likes to assess any situation before becoming involved. Even at this young age I would say he is a deep thinker and does not like people to invade his space, rather he prefers to assess them himself and then is either very friendly and sociable or he may decide that he does not wish to speak with them. when upset with me or his father, again usually when ill there is no consoling him until he comes forward on his own accord but his upset is usually short lived. he is a loveable and affectionate child.

his cough currently is dry at night and occurs briefly during the day. he has a runny nose but this is clear at the moment. temperature is normal but i worry that each time he has a cough this develops into a chest infection. his father is asthmatic with a family history of chronic asthma, father also suffers with hay fever. i have a nut allergy. i am currently pregnant and happy to continue breastfeeding but am concerned that once i stop my son will become more ill. i am frightened of him developing asthma

thanks in advance

appearance: olive skinned with big brown eyes and dark black hair. Tall and lean in build. Low threshold for pain - mainly teething difficulties. As I said previously he is an extremely independent child and has to do everything himself, he never crawled and walked at 11 months. he is still breastfed - he is very reluctant to self wean despite my being pregnant and although I have reduced nursing sessions I cannot see him chosing to wean anytime soon.

in terms of birth he was 12 days overdue. I was induced and reacted to the medication given - hyperstimulated and suffered with multiple contractions, used no pain relief other than gas and air but I was in extreme pain and fainted throughout the labour. Overall labour was quick. he suffered with colic and reflux and i took him to a cranial oesteopath and both these conditions resolved after 4 sessions of treatment.

recent treatment: I have given chammomilla for teething 200c as he was in extreme pain and 6c not effective. responded well to this - much calmer, coping better with pain, sleeping better although first night of taking symptoms were worse than ever. other than this he has had medication for chest infection from doctor. Cough seems to be getting better but still has runny nose and still in some pain with teething (second set molars). we are due to go on holiday soon and I would like him to be fit and well and enjoy it.

many thanks in advance for any help

Hi

Let us get over this chest infection first.

Please give him three wet doses of Belladona 200 separated by three hours each on a single day only.

You will need to put 2 pills/drops of the remedy in some 150 ml of mineral water. Allow it to dissolve for some 15 minutes. Shake the bottle vigorously 10-15 times. One teaspoon from the bottle is one dose. Give 10 succussions to the stock bottle before each dose. Throw away the rest of the solution after the three doses have been given.

Let me know of the condition three days from taking the remedy.

Regards,
Niel
