How is his cough now?

meftal tab is mefanamic acid. It is indicated as a pain killer. What is reason for giving meftal instead of paracetamol which is generally given.

Are you giving him any allopathic drugs now?
kadwa last decade
meftal was given by mbbs doc., i dont know about it. fever comes down using it.

for cough, earlier given homeo medicine, we have given some allopathic med. on prescription of mbbs doc.

cough is quite gone. I have not seen him coughing.

He is very Aggresive and irritating and never say yes to any thing .. please help and change his attitute.. we want him very supportive and social.

Please stop ferrum phos 6x and kali mur 6x as there is no cough now.

Please give him a single dose of Lycopodium 200 and report back after one week.

There are very few authentic sources on homeopathy like Boericke and Kent. There is no need to take seriously what someone says about the remedy on the basis of sources known best to him.

You should not give your child ferrum phos and kali mur if he doesn't cough.
kadwa last decade
Lycopodium 200
one dose mean 1 drop in 20 ml water.

after 2 days of relief from cough he again start coughing badly.

me too is having cough.
and some sensation in throat.

Please give him one tablet each of ferrum phos 6x and kali mur 6x thrice a day. If that doesn't help, please give him spongia toasta 30 in the morning and evening for 3 days.

You should take three doses of Phosphorus 200 at a gap of 12 hours and then resume kali phos 6x.

i am giving him kali phos and ferrum phos.

in the start you prescribe kali phos.

you write kali mur ..

please suggest.
vajin last decade
kali mur is better than kali phos for cough.

kali phos is a nerve tonic and it improves stamina.
