Asthma in little girl

Hello, I have question about my 4 years old little daughter: she suffers from cough and choking as asthmatic do. One doctor says she has got asthma, one says she does not have one. She was given an inhaler (ventolin and clenil modulite). She will cough when emotional, when crying, when running or walking, when it is foggy or very humid, sometime when going to bed, when eaten corn flakes. Of course I do not feed it to her anymore, I try to keep her room without dust but sometime she coughs so much that she cries from pain. She also sometimes suffers from vaginal discharge and as baby she was very prone to urinal infections. We are also concerned about her hair; it is quite fine and does not grow nearly at all. We trim it regularly but it does not help. She is very smart but very shy and easily upset. Could you please help?
Thank you very much!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The therapy I prescribe for Asthma is as follows:

Nat Sulph 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
It is best to take the first dose first thing in the morning and the second dose just before bed.

Steam is also important inhaled for about 5 minutes twice daily. You can get the steaming device used in beauty saloons for facial treatment. You will most likely cough up a lot of phlegm immediately after steaming.

Physiotherapy is also indicated after steaming to rid the lungs and airways of the phlegm which is also the cause of Asthma. You will lay flat across your bed with your chest slightly elevated above your head which is hanging down over the side. You will get someone to tap your chest on the back from the waist up to your neck and you should find that your phlegm will drool out in cupfuls.

Exercise is essential for you and you will drink at least 3 liters of water daily. You can also blow into a baloon to help strengthen your lungs.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

Let me first help her with her Asthma and we can try to help her vaginal discharge which is very unusual for a chld of her age. It may have been caused to the drugs that she has been given up to now and we will observe how she responds in a few weeks without them.

Thanks to all of you, going to try everything.

1. Describe in detail the main problem - appearance, colour, shape, sensation, pain. etc. What happens, when it happens etc.
Cough (asthma) since about three months of age. On and off.

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms. Sometimes she coughs and chokes so much she would have pain on her chest and cry


3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. Position, temperature, food etc. when emotional or upset, for example when she is fold off or disciplined, when she can not find her cuddly toy…when running and physical activity, usually when doing to bed and lied down, dust and mould, corn, corn flakes; recently was one incident caused by “new improved super absorbent” bedmat

4. Describe anything that makes the problem better ie. Pain is better for cold bathing or at night in bed. She has an inhaler Ventolin which seems to help, recently could not help so she was given another inhaler called


1. Describe in detail the main problem - appearance, colour, shape, sensation, pain. etc. What happens, when it happens etc.
urinal infections– pain when passing urine, she was trying to avoid it ever since being a little baby, and sometimes it was associated with vaginal discharge. Vaginal discharge was usually white-yellowish and stank. Once it was greenish. Sometimes it was vaginal discharge on its own but it usually smells like an adult’s one.

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms. Painful wee, itchy, disturbing.

3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. position, temperature, food etc. most occasions were during summer, windy days

4. Describe anything that makes the problem better ie. pain is better for cold bathing or at night in bed. I have been advised to try Cantharis when she was about 2 and half years old. The urinal problem nearly cleared but the vaginal discomfort reappears. I can not associate it with anything; the only thing I can imagine is some kind of cross infection when using toilets in the nursery. It is itchy, stinks and the discharge is usually white-yellowish. I will use Canesten external cream and it seems to take a couple of days to ease.

5. Go through each symptom or problem he/she has, doing the same thing, even if the problem does not seem connected to any others (repeating answers for questions 1-4 for every problem). About two years ago she started to bite her nails, at first only on hands, later on also on her toes. We have tried some liquids, wearing gloves or plaster on them but she will still do it.

6. When did each problem start? What happened around that same time? She suffers the cough from very early on about three months of age as well as the urinal problems. Can’t recall any significant event around then. About two years ago during the recession we have both lost our jobs and we have been under significant amount of stress, we had to take her from the nursery, mum and dad would be at home all the time, running about looking for a job. It was temporary but I feel like it could have been a strain for her as well.

7. What is his/her character like? What kinds of fears or anxieties does he/she have? What makes him/her irritable? Flesh out his/her personality as much as you are able (age can make this difficult) she was breastfed and slept in our bed until she was three, than she decided to move into her room. She is very independent, she was nappy free very soon (14 months), she could feed herself pretty soon, she could dress herself fully from 2 years. She can play on her own, sometimes wants specific activity, she loves her nursery and has many friends there. She has occasional tantrum, more frequent since her brother was born 7 and half months ago. Sometime she would have nightmares, will say that someone tried to steel her little brother or kidnap her best friend, sometime she is scared of wolf from three little pigs or red riding hood. She does not like to be on her own in the room in the night but during day she will enjoy playing on her own. She wants to please others. She loves to cuddle and reads books, recently started to be afraid of dark. She is so lovely, she is a chatter box. She is very easily upset and will bite her hand when crying to stop herself from crying aloud. She will be upset when she can get what she wants (TV, chocolate).

8. What foods does he/she crave or hate? What drinks does he/she crave or hate? Is he/she sensitive to anything he eats or drinks? How does he/she feed? She loves milk, cheese, yogurt, chocolate and sweet stuff, does not like string beans, I think that corn, corn flakes and similar stuff sets off cough like she is choking.

9. How does the weather or season or temperature affect him/her? Can not tell, do not think that winter would make it any worse, probably just the cough seems to be more often in dump and foggy weather; her water infections were more common in summer

10. How have all his/her milestones gone? Does he/she have any issue with speaking, learning, walking, climbing etc she is very bright, she was out of her nappies at 14 months, also started walked then, speaks fluently three languages, she can draw with surprisingly many details for her age and has a fashion sense!

11. How is he/she with socializing with others? She loves her nursery, has a lot of friends there, loves her teachers, but when with the some kids in different environment (party or somewhere else) she goes shy and emotional, won’t join in with others. She loves her little brother, wants to cuddle and stroke him all the time, brings him toys, nappies, blanket but I am sure she is jealous because he is breastfed and I have to spend a lot of time with him as he was poorly when he was born (7.5months of age). Trouble is that it is just four of us living abroad (both children born here) with no relatives or grandparents to socialize with or to babysit.
12. What is his/her bowel habit like? Any problems? Any odours, strange colours or stool shapes? It is regular, sometimes hard, and sometimes soft with some loose bits.

13. Where does he/she sweat? Does it have a smell or does it stain a particular colour? She is like a baby, as soon as she falls asleep she starts sweating but it is light with no stains with no smell at all and mostly on her head.
She will sweat when running about but not much and it does not stain nor smell.

14. History of illnesses in his/her life? Born with umbilical hernia (ovary sticking out), repaired at two months of age, she had about 18 courses of antibiotics for her urinal infections up until two and half years of age, than I had been advised to try Cantharis which really helped. She has permanently purple circles under her eyes, no matter how much she sleeps for about two years now. Her hair does not grow. I keep trimming it to encourage the growth but it is quite fine and will grow about 1 cm a year which makes her upset as she would like to wear plait.

15. Has he/she reacted to any vaccines or medical drugs? No allergic reaction, some irritation after immunisation but that quickly cleared

16. Problems with sleep? Position he/she sleeps in? Once she is asleep she is usually ok, time to time it is hard for her to fall asleep, especially when she is later then her usual time, sometimes she gets nightmares, sometimes she would come into our bed because she is scared. She sleeps on both sides, and on her back but always kicks her cover off. Cuddling her favourite toy.

17. How is he/she with animals? She loves them, she would like to have a doggy at home. She would stroke it, not the one that barks. We used to have a little pet mouse, she would scream with delight. We have fishes; she would watch them and feed them with pleasure.

18. How is he/she with adults or strangers? Very shy, can say hello and thank you but from distance, partly due to the fact that it is just four of us with no other family members around so she is not used to talking or being with anyone else than her parents and recently with her little brother

19. What is the family history of illness and disease? Depression in mother, asthma and allergies in grandmother on maternal side, allergy to dust in father.

20. What was the pregnancy like? Any odd symptoms or feelings that disappeared once he/she was born? Any symptoms that were problematic? What kind of stresses were you under? Antenatal depression (bullied at work)-worried about work, had to move, moved into new house just week before she was born so under a lot of stress, mostly sorted after she was born.

Hope it will help to indicate suitable medicine, should you request any further info, please let me know.
Thank you for your help, it is very much appreciated.

Dear doctors,
I just remembered she is allergic to pineapple, she will get spot around her mouth and swelling and itching in her mouth and throat. She also started complaining from burning eyes, she told me yesterday that it hurts when she looks into light and she says it has been going on for “long”. I also noticed that her pooh is mostly usual but sometimes it looks like whipped or like mousse.
Thank you again.

Dear doctors, thank you for your advice. I have applied suggested treatment and the cough has eased but there are more worrying symptoms:

She is constantly exhausted, she did not have any nap during daytime since she was two, but recently she needs to sleep during the day in the nursery as well, she has deep purple circles around her eyes, she started to complain about pain in her tummy, she goes to the toilet unusually often it can be 3-4 times a day. Her pooh can be either sleek or like whipped cream/mousse which just falls apart. It is almost every time oily and yellowish rather than brown. On occasions it also smells like smokers` one – of cigarettes (we are nonsmokers). She also has asthma like symptoms. I am sure that her immunity is quite low, as she gets every cold running about. She became more melancholic rather then being happy little girl she used to be. I am really worried that it could be something more serious. Can you suggest anything that could help please? Thank you very much in advance.
