2-yo twins: nearly no hearing, glue ear, enlarged adenoids + tonsils. ANY HELP?

Identical twins are 25months and have suffered from enlarged tonsils and adenoids for some time, possibly 1.5 year. A recent tympanometry (hearing) test showed that they hear nearly nothing. They have liquid in the ears. The next step is adenoids removal + grommets. It does not solve the problem though.

Eating (chewing) difficult for at least a year. Most of the things they eat is blended or requires little chewing. Otherwise they dont swallow and keep in the mouth for ages, pointing to the ears/tonsils, showing pain.

History
------
Difficult pregnancy, suspected twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome
(twin2 stopped growing at 22th week; started to grow a bit later on; I was nearly forced to be delievered at 28weeks. Said no.). I suffered from fungus infections, candida, strep, indigestion and finally the salts from the bile that were released to the blood. This possibly triggered an early delivery.

Delivery
----------
Started by T1(twin1) at 35 weeks. C-section because T1 was coming with his feet instead of head.

T2 was born with umbilical cord around neck and his arm. This (my guess) could explain his poor growth.

T1: birth weight 5.5pounds
T2: birth weight 3.8 pounds

T1 & T2 did not keep the body temp in the first few weeks (below 36). Fluctuacting blood sugars. Jaundice for 2.5 months.

Breastfed with a formula top-up. Switched to goat's formula after eczema at T2.

Slow weight gain for the first 5 months. So slow it was on the edge of acceptance but never weight loss. Very stressful.

Lots of gases, difficulty with their digestion.

Stopped breastfeeding at 10 (T1) and 12 (T2) months.

NOT vaccinated at all.


T1 & T2
---------
Tonsilitis at 10months. Antibiotics.
Supplemented later by priobiotics.
MY IMPRESSION: all problems continue from this.

T1
-------
antibiotics 19-20 months for an ear infection. did not clear the fluids in
the ear.

FOOD
--------
They eat home-cooked soups and meals, porridge (with 12h soak oats + buckwheat), meat, green smoothies (raw leafy greens + banana+apples), cooked vegs, free range eggs (moslty yolks), some bread (rarely), goat's milk + cheese, cottage cheese + some regular cheese (little). pasta 1-2 x month. Mostly potatoes, buckwheat, some meat, lentils, peas, vegs.

T1 has more problems with ears/hearing than T2

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give them three doses of Calcarea Carb 200 as follows and see how that affects in next 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NOW?

As suggested by Dr Kadwa I gave calc carb 200c. The 1st dose was given 9 days ago.

Twins have become worse, developed even more enlarged tonsils, stopped swallowing (have to blend nearly everything) got cough, sneezy nose, etc.
In meantime my another child (pre-schooler) got ill.

As of today twins seem to have either Scarlet fever (high fever, >= 39.5C =103F) or step throat (pus on tonsils) + a rash. Rash feels like a sand paper, mainly neck, behind the ears, check and groin area. Fever first then rash, which could suggest scarlet fever.

In addiiton twin2 (T2) has been hugely constipated all the time. I gave him glycerine suppositories
3 days ago as nothing else helped. It caused the bowel movement but he has been still in pain. He has eatne little only.

What to do now? My pre-schooler responded well to Belladonna 30C.

What do I need to do with twins?

Please give them a single dose of Lachesis 200. Please repeat the remedy after 12 hours on need.
