Homeopet Cough: $14.29Lil' Bruises & Bumps (arnica): $9.99


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

me (mother) and my two children aged 5.6yrs (boy) and 6 mnth old baby girl have dry cough since one month.Plz Help !

To begin with...Am 33 yrs old lady,have a 5.6 yr old boy and a 6 month old baby girl.Since almost last one month we three are having dry cough.
I have Sinus problem on and off since last 3 yrs.Since last one month I've had cough with severe headache(frontal),pressure in Ears,eyes with body and tooth ache,numbness in cheek bone,fatigue and sore throat.The first time when I visited the Doc she put me on antibiotics for 7 days (Amoxy) plus Nasal Drops (Nam Cold),it did help but only to an extent,later I was put on Lezocitrizine which I stopped after just one dose as it would make me drowsy which made looking after my 6 mnth old difficult.Later I decided to bear the discomfort than going to the Doc.But the next night my throat choked making breathing very difficult,on visiting the Doc the next morning she diagnosed I have something called as pharyngitis (and Dehydration)for which she gave me a few antibiotics and avil.My throat sobered down a bit though but all other problem remains,specially the dry cough,and my throat still is irritable.
My father who reads Homeopathy advised me on taking Ferrom Phos 6x twice and two doses of Ipecac 30.But I dont seem to have got any relief yet.
Moreover,what worries me the most is my 6 month old (breast fed) baby whos got Dry Cough,irritability usually in the evenings and night.She is on Saline nasal drops and Ferrom Phos 6x.She isnt feeding well too and usually very cranky.
Lastly my Son,he has the same problem of Dry Cough,throat irritability,doesnt drink much water and is also eating less.Have given him only two doses of Ferrum Phos 6x and Honnitus Cough Syrup.
If anyone In the forum could help all three of us together it'll be great,(cause I feel It'll do us good only if all three get better together)and If not then the Baby takes Priority followed by my Son !
Thanking you all in Advance !

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give the city where you are living and the postal code. I want to check the temperature and humidity in your area, before suggesting you a medicine.

Guwathati's temp are humidity is not the contributor.

You take these three medicine:

Calc Carb 30 - 1 dose.
Phos 30 - 1 dose
Lyco 30 - 1 dose

Give 2 hours between doses. Take only once, all in the same day.

When you get better, your breast fed baby will get better too. If the baby has still trouble, you can give one dose of Lyco 30, in the evening, only once. Dont have to repeat.

You can give the same 3 medicines, in the same way to your son too.

Report after 3 days.
If needed, i will request to repeat the 3 medicines once more or will suggest to take KALI MUR 6x (bio chemic) for 3 times a day for the next 1 week.

Reva,Thank you so much your prompt reply !

I'll get the said Meds immdtly ! Just wanted to know the difference in pellet and pill,and do i need to do some mixing in water or simply keep it under tongue.What are the sugary small balls which I usually see ?
Moreover my throat is dry, inflammed and red,last night had difficulty breathing so had to wake up at 4 am to gargle(with salt).
My kids are no better,baby was cranky all along,and my boy threw up while coughing at night.

However,I shall keep you updated once I start taking the said Prescription.
Thank You once again for all your help !

pellet or pill is same. No mixing in water needed. Just place on tongue.

Gargling with Iodine is very effective than salt. Iodine is sold in allopathic medical shops in the name of BETADINE and is meant for gargling.

Dear Dr Reva,

I have edited my msg since it wasnt really making much sense and i am reporting my recovery as on 22nd Feb i..e..3 days after your prescription.

I along with my son had the doses on 19th Feb.

The same evening,I had severe severe headache,Nausea,body ache,facial pain numbness(Cheek bone,eyes)felt feverish,although Nasal block n throat felt lil better.

My Son too was not eating anything from the second dose onwards and later in the evening(19th Feb)threw up all that he ate.He too was feeling unwell,weak and drained out.

But today after completion of three days Am sooo Thankfulll to you for your advice,we two are almost well except running noses and lil body ache and slight throat pain with irritation.I cant Thank You enough,really!

I had given Lyco 30 to my baby on 20th eve...sadly she still has a lingering cough with running nose.

I think by tomorrow she too would be fine.

I have now given her a Combination tablet of 'Denton' since shes got trouble teething.

Denton has-
1.Calcarea phosphorica 3x
2.Calcarea fluorica 3x
3.Ferrum phosphoricum 6x
4.Kali muriaticum 6x
5.Kali phosphoricum 6x
6.Silicea 6x
7.Colocynthis 6
8.Chamomilla vulgaris 6

(Would you by any chance know how many doses and how often should I give her this ?)

All you homeopaths together are truly doing a great job.God Bless you Guys !
Thank You once again for your help!!


P.S:We havent started on Kali Mur yet,Do you still suggest we go ahead with it ?

Thank you for taking time to edit. It is clear now.

For cold symptom lingering afterwards, please give KALI MUR 6x, 3 tablets, 3 to 4 times a day and you will see great results.

The combination remedy seems to be good to me. Give once or twice a day. It seems very safe and great combination.

Dear Dr Reva...

Can I give Kali Mur to my baby also.If yes then How many tablets,how often and for how long ?
Can I continue giving Denton with Kali Mur to her ?

Thanx a ton !
anannya 9 years ago
Yes, Kali Mur is very safe to give to baby also. one tablet, twice or even thrice a day is good. If cold reduced by more than 80%, you can reduce the dosage to once a day, till completely well.

If you giving Denton, Kali Mur seems to be there and hence you dont need to give this seperately.

Thank You so much Dr Reva !

My babys cold seems to be really tough on her,refuses to go,rest of the times shes almost ok except for the running nose but when shes on bed her nostrils get blocked n she breathes with difficulty.

I thought it'll pass just like ours,think I'll try giving her Kali Mur 6x one tab twice a day along with Denton....and i hope she gets better with it !

Thank you for sparing so much of your time!
Am touched!!

Take Care,

For your baby, Please stop Dentron and give Kali Mur 6x, 2 or 3 times in a day.

Every night, give a dose of Lycopodium 30, for 3 days only and write back.

Dr Reva,

First of all would you,by anychance, know a good Homeopath here in guwahati ? And also in Nagpur (for my mother who is a Psychiatric Patient (since last 40 yrs) for consultation.

Secondly,My throat pain (Farangitis)is troubling me again.I think its due to some Allergy.(I was out of Guwahati for last 20 days and I was ok)

I feel 'suffocated' all the time,can breathe only thru' one nose at any given time.
My main concern is my throat and associated breathing difficulty.

My throat hurts on gulping anything,even water
(I think Ice Creams,Colas and pickles only increases my problems).
And its been almost there since last 5 months now.

It sobers with a round of antibiotics.But returns back in a couple of weeks.

I've had a round of antibiotics 20 days back when I was very uncomfortable with my throat and breathing,and had to travel (by air) continously for three days.I have a slight deviation in my left nose.Have always had discomfort in flights.

Will you be able to recommend something for me ?

Anything,that can sort my lingering problem once n for all.

Thank you once again !
