Persistent cough leading to vomiting of mucus

My 14 year old daughter has had a bad cough for 3 weeks now. The cough is spasmodic and the coughs are in quick succession. She feels she is unable to breath whilst coughing.The coughing is quickly followed by vomiting of clear bubbly mucus mostly, but sometimes she also vomits up food. This does improve the cough temporarily. it is mostly worse at night when she is lying down, but more recently she has been coughing more during the day. Often there will be a deep intake of breath between coughs which will sound like the whoop of whooping cough. She has not had a temperature at all.
When she first became unwell I gave her Drosera 30 which seemed to help initially. The most recent remedy I have given her is Spongia. It seems to help a little but I feel it may only be a partial. I would be grateful for any help or advice.

Hi, Not a problem, I understand. The info. was needed as some homoeopathic remedies create problems, if taken during monthly cycle? Please go ahead and purchase the following remedies.

1. Bryonia 30C
2. Carbo Vegetabilis 30C

Please let me know when you get them.

Many prayers for your daughter.

Regards
Nawaz

Thank you for your kindness. I have Carbo Veg 200 at home with me and but not in the 30th potency. I get get the remedies tomorrow but I am concerned for my daughter tonight as lying down does aggravate her cough. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do until I am able to get the remedies?

Many thanks

Dr. Nawazkhan

Single intermittent dose of Pertusin-200 may help

It is your decision

Dear Nawaz

My Daughter did seem to be a bit better after the Carbo Veg 200, but the improvement did not last. I then gave her Bryonia 30 and that did not seem to help much either. Her symptoms seem to come and go and the whooping bit of the cough seems a little worse. My 12yr old daughter has the same cough which has got much worse over the past few days. Her symptoms are very similar. They both seem to be well apart from the cough and a little tiredness from the interrupted sleep. The cough is very violent and seems to rack the whole body. During the coughing spell they find it really hard to breath and when they draw breath they breath very deeply and make the whooping sound. It may be useful for you to know that my children are unvaccinated.

Sorry not to get back to you sooner. Thank you once again for your help. R.P. Tamhankar, thank you too for your suggestions.

Kind regads

It is always a good idea to keep Inula Helenium 30c in pellets form at home for dry cough.
