This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Causticum 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

If you have taken sulphur 30 earlier, it is better to take a single dose of calc carb 200 and start lycopodium 200 on next day.

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, 2 drops 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.

thank you very much for your reply.
I have got my periods yesterday and after my own study I took Pulsatilla C30 2 doses and it really helped and now I have stopped taking it as it helped and the flow is normal.
Should I still take Causticum 200? when yes should I take it straight away or after my periods have ended?
many thanks and best regards
 
NKCheema 7 years ago
There is no need to take causticum as Pulsatilla helped. Your remedy is Pulsatilla. Whether the remedy helped for other things too like constipation and other reported problems?

thanks for your reply and time...
Constipation is always better by the onset of periods. I have to wait for some days to see other changes. One more thing is my weight gain and craving of sweet things.
Even I am not hungry I want to eat and I have gained weight on my thighs and lower back. As soon as I eat something my stomach looks like I am pregnant. This is a big problem. I don't eat much. I am a nutritionist so I know how to check my calories, but I always feel like everything I eat is not giving me energy, instead its just depositing in my body.
I hope you can help me with this. I will be really thankful

I may also ask you for a remedy for my son. He is 14 months old and his left eye duct is closed since birth and he is assigned for an operation in 1.5 months.
His left eye is always producing tears and is sometimes sticky and get infected very easily. I have tried Euphrasia with no help. Doctors are going to pierce his eye duct and I am really afraid. I didn't want to open a new thread should I do it or can you help me in this over here?
I can post his complete details if you want to know any. Many thanks in advance

NKCheema 7 years ago
Reply to your questions regarding my son:

1.whether he prefers warm surroundings ie whether he likes to be covered or he prefers cold surroundings and open air.
Ans. He loves to go out, but in my opinion he is better when its warm. When it starts getting cold his eye tears more.

2.whether he has a mild disposition or an irritable deposition?
Ans. His deposition is mostly mild, but during a course of cold or flu it gets irritable. At the moment its between mild and irritable, because he is suffering from cold for 3 weeks with cough etc.

Q.How is his attitude towards his friends and relatives?
He loves playing with us and his older sister. He gets jealous easily when we are paying attention to the elder one and he cries and sits in our lap

3.What other physical problems, if any does he have.
He is physically very fit and is growing well. He is having cough(just at night and mucus cough), runny nose and he might get chickenpox because my daughter had them recently

4.At what time he feels better and at what time does he feel worse like in the morning, evening, late night etc.
in the morning is his eye really bad and during the day its get better. When he is angry it's worse and when he is sleepy.

5.What do you think is the causative factor for starting his problems.
he is having this from birth. The tear ducts are closed when a baby is born and they get open by time, but his one eye got better when he was 3 months old, but this one is the same from his birth

6.How is his thirst for cold drinks, hot drinks and water?
he loves drinking water and is mostly thirsty. I never give him cold drinks or hot drinks. He is drinking everything at room temp.

7.How is the bowel movement? Normal, constipated or loose.
From normal to loose. As soon as he gets unwell the first thing is bowel movement which changes and he gets loose tools. Never constipated

8.Whether the child prefers to move around or prefers to keep still.
he loves moving around and cant keep still. He doesnt like to play with toys, instead he prefers to play with people

I am having another problem, will be very thankful for any help.
I am breastfeeding and my right nipple is sore at top left side. It looks like a spot which is white from between and red around. It always pains when my baby feeds from this side and the pain is like warm wave and something knocking inside. It feels better to put on cold things and by pressing that side. Can I have a remedy for this along with Pulsatilla?
 
NKCheema 7 years ago
I would like to add my daughter to your patients list. She is 5 yrs old and has started school at the age of 4. She is really afraid of darkness and is just afraid of unseen. She always walks in our room at night and is willing to sleep with us. I am really worried about her. She even can't go into the bathroom alone at night.
She is having Thallasemia minor, but is overall good in health and is gaining height and weight. She is active and quite good at school. Every virus catches her first. She is having a weak immune system. Has just had minor chickenpox because she was vaccinated against them. She is fond of going to school and has good friends.
One more thing is she is very sensitive. I really keep on thinking about her fears.
I will be thankful to you for your favor.
May God bless you, ameen

Hi Kadwa!
Thanks a lot for Croton Tig. I have got it today and is helping me already. I can feel the difference and will let you know in some days.
I am not giving anything to my son as he has got Chickenpox now.
 
NKCheema 7 years ago
One more thing. I am not giving anything to my son as he has got Chickenpox now. The problem is that he just got one spot under his lip and i am sure it's chickenpox. He just scratched it and I am afraid a mark is going to be left over on his face. Chickenpox marks doesnt look good at all. Can I help him with Calendula Q or Silicea D12 or anything else in homeopathic? The pox isn't crusted till now...
Looking forward for your help
thanks a lot in advance
 
NKCheema 7 years ago
Yes. You may give him 2 pellets of silcea 12x in the morning and evening for 3 days.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Thanks a lot for your reply. I went to the GP today and she told me he is having Impetigo. I think, due to his scratching on his chickenpox he has got this bacterial infection now. What can I give him as it's getting worse and is spreading. It started from a smaller spot and is more than 1cm now. It's red and itchy with yellowish crust forming over. Otherwise he seems to be fine. Sleeping restlessly and seems to be tired sometimes. I have got antibiotic ointment which I Am using, but will still lik to use homeopathy with it, many thanks
Regards

Please give him crot tig 30 in the morning and evening for 3 days. That should help his impetigo.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Thanks a loads for your help and support, sorry for replying after some days. After one dose of croton tig c30 my son got chicken pox so I stopped every remedy. Now I am giving him silicea d12 to prevent scarring as directed 2 tabs morn and evening. I have noticed one problem, in his nappy area he has too many spots and they scabbed over, but today all of them looked like open sores or wounds. What should I do? They all look so red and awful.

It has been 16 days app. After pulsatilla c30. What do you suggest me now?
I am not craving sweets so much at the moment, but the cravings start before my periods have to come.
Secondly I am constipated again. Which is really irritating, even everyday bowel movement isn't normal.
As I told you I take magnesium as it helps me with constipation and muscle pains, but in a way I feel it makes me bloated and my tummy looks big.
One more thing is that my left shoulder pains a lot and as stated above my smallest and ring finger both have a strange kind of pain, which increases when I put some pressure on them. Even I can't hold any heavy object with that hand. It wasn't a problem before. I will go to my GP after chickenpox clear up.
I feel unmotivated and tired. Don't want to go out, even I often plan to go for a walk on regular basis.
Please any help is appreciated. I am really looking for help
Croton tig has helped me a lot with breast pain, but it isn't healed completely yet

One more thing I want to add is that I don't feel hungry in the morning. I even doesn't want to breakfast, but in the evening I try to stop myself from eating. I am really hungry after having a good dinner. Even though I feel to be full, but there is something which doesn't satisfy and I eat in response. That's really irritating and I feel I am doing a crime and harming myself and my body.
