Haemophilus influenza sore throat


I have 2 wonderful twins, boys. Their viruses lasted 4 weeks. Then our doctor made some tests, that showed haemophilus influenza bacteria in their throat. He suggested antibiotics, I refused.
Now their throats are red and they cough at nights one or two times. What remedy i should use to stop this virus. In daytime they are so happy as there is no virus at all. I have dried apis, hepar sulphur, lycopodium. Now I give them calcium carbonicum, but the cough at nights doesn't end.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Can you give the symptoms so one of us can make a remedy suggestion?

My intake form follows, although others here might want different information.

Some of the questions here may not be relevent - just ignore those. Obviously when I am in clinic the questioning is tailored to the information being given, but here I have to throw out a wide net.


It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.

1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE. You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide.

As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.

Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.

Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.

Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.

If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like

Children's Questions:

1. What occured to the mother during pregnancy - new symptoms, illnesses, medical treatments, emotional stresses.

2. What problems occured during the birth?

3. What was happening in the mother's life around the time of conception?

4. What illnesses did both parents have for the 5 years or so preceding conception?

5. Describe the following features of the child

a) Body type and build
b) Skin colour and texture
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat

6. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.

Children's Questions:

1. What occured to the mother during pregnancy - new symptoms, illnesses, medical treatments, emotional stresses.
I had very stressful work, during pregnancy. It was found ureaplasmosis bacteria from my urital tract. It was treated by antibiotics, that shouldn't give to pregnancy women. I had no idea of homeopathy then. My doctor told that if I didn't take these pilss, my babies would start born on the 5th month. I had also bleeding between 3-4 months. I got one pill for it too. My twins were born on the 34th week. Their apgar was 8/10, it was good with them, but they didn't eat pretty much. They were on breastfeeding 2 years.

2. What problems occured during the birth? There were e.coli bacteria and I was made cesarian section.

3. What was happening in the mother's life around the time of conception? I had hard working period, but nothing critical thing. I wanted to get pregnant and it happened very easily.

4. What illnesses did both parents have for the 5 years or so preceding conception? The dad had sinusitis, several colds and flus. He had antibiotics for sinusitis and paracetamol for flus. We both didn't know about homeopathy since 2 years ago when our babies were born. I had several cold's and flus, candida albican problems, very painful periods, one sore throat that were treated with antibiotics.

5. Describe the following features of the child

a) Body type and build
The first twin is very skinny, 11 kg and 2 years old. The other is skinny too 11,5 kg, but he seems much more fatter. He has round face. The first one has oblong face. Our homeopath said that the first one seems to be Silicea type and the other Lycopodium face.
b) Skin colour and texture I'm very pale, but my twins have swarthy skin. The texture is soft, but there are some rough places on the legs. Especially they have eaten some food that contains some preservatives. It's very rare times when they get it. Till the 9 month they were screaming when I ate dairy broducts, glutein containing products. I have made test and I have food intolerance for dairy products, potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, almonds, cherries, plums and so one. I ate them till my sons were born.
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on: head- when they were babies, they were sometimes wet. They had anemia during that time 8-12 months. They got tothema for it. Now one boy were wet ofter lunch sleep. He had hemoph. infl bacteria +++, the first child had ++.
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine Sweat has no smell, sometimes it spicy or something, but not now. Stool has bad smell as lycopodium:) Urine and flatus have no bad smell.
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat
The stool is darker brown for both children. Urine is yellow. Sweat has no colour.
6. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs. Tothema made them vomating. I think that after b-hepatites vaccine they went so restless, didn't want to sleep and cried very much. But it's only doubt. They got their vaccines till 6 months (tuberculosis, hepatitis B, diphteria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, haemophilus influenzae b. They got these brands: Engerix-B, Infanrix. They have got Egerix B twice and Infanrix three times. They haven't got shot for measles, mumps, rubella.

Their virus started with little cough and cold. Then I gave them aconitum and lycopodium for second son who should be lycopodium type. He didn't have cough then. Oftrer one week they were almost healthy. Then their grandparents came. They were wooried about I gave them homeopathic remedies and in the evening they had temperature 38. Celsius. Then came cold and they started to cough at nights. We went to the doctor and she said that it's because of sore throat and cold. I gave them bryonia, hepar sulphur, ca phos, sulphur. Then went 1,5 week and they were pretty healthy again and then came temeperature to the second twin 40,3. Then I gave him Belladonna, he had red face and her eyes were looking only one place. China took his temperature down and lavendel water. Then we went to the docotr and she got these haemophl. infl tests and suggested Bactrim. I have given Apis 2,5 days, didn't get better, hepar sulphur, ferrum phos, 2x lycopodium 200. The other remedies were 30C. Now I have given them Ca carb 3 days. So they don't cough at nights but in the morning at nine o'clock and during their lunch sleep between 3-4.
Before they got sick, I had difficulties with my husband and mother in law. During their illness we have had conversations and I think we have solved our problems.

Thank you for your answer.

Unfortunately still not enough for me to make a suggestion.

When exactly at night do they start coughing?

What else affects the cough, to make it worse or make it better?

What is the sound of the cough?

What are they like when they cough? How much or how many times do they cough? What do they look like when they cough?

What do they cough up if anything?

How is their sleep?

How is their appetite?

How is their behaviour at night?

They have had a lot of homoeopathic medicines and a lot of allopathic medicines as well. What medication seemed to have the worst effect on them?
