8 month old bably cough,flu and vomit

Hi All,

My 8 month old daughter got flu on friday. We went out to see a friend in the evening. It was cold wind outside and every one at my fiends home had flu too. After coming home she started having running nose (watery) and little fever38C. I gave her Aconite 30C ( 1 drop in a tea spoon water) 1 or 2 dose on Saturday. Same on Sunday. We gave her paracitamol as well. 3 times in 2 days. She was ok(no fever) on Monday but running nose was still there and it was turning yellow. On Tuesday i gave her Alium cepa and Arsenicum (both 30c, 1drop in 1 tea spoon water) alternate every 2 hrs. but after second dose she had started coughing a lot and vomited couple of times. We took her to doctor. She gave usual paracitamol and some cough syrup and something for running nose and 1 for allergies. My daughter is constantly crying. must be hungry because she didn't eat or dring since afternoon and was not able to sleep either.

can someone help please. I am in singapore and i am afraid this flu thing is very common here due to humid weather. I want to have some better remedies than just relying on paracitamol and cough syrups.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Pl stop all other medicines
Pl give her
1. Nux Vomica-30 6 pills 3 times a day (or 3 drops in one teaspoonful water 3 times a day)
2. Hepar Sulph-30 6 pills at bed time (or 3 drops in one teaspoonful water at bed time)

Pl give feedback after 3-4 days

Thank you very much. I have Nux 30c and i will start that now. But i don't have Hepar Sulph and the worst thing about Singapore is almost nill homeopathic medicine availability. I bring medicines from india every time i visit. Is there any other alternatives for Hepar Sulph.

Just to add, she is vomitting after any food intake and urinating very less.

i gave her Nux Vom 30c. she is better. Though we are continuouing with the alopathic medicine as well.

current condition:
Nasal Discharge : While thick
Vomiting : once in the morning when drinking milk.

I will report in the evening again.

If you have
Calc Carb-30 then give 6 pills in place of Hepar Sulph
at bed time

Thanks R.P.
unfortunatly i don't have that either. I have
R. T.
Allium Cepa
Aethusa cynapium
Nux Vom

I know this doesn't help but I have limited option. I will try to order online but it's going to take a week at least.

Her current condition is a lot better. She is active. No vomitting after the last one in morning.
Coughing a little and it seems painful looking at her expressions.

She had 38.7C(102F) in afternoon and we gave her paracitamol.

One more generic question. since this is going to be the almost every 2-3 months , is there some medicine i can use to prevent flu or anything which i can give on the very firt symptom to stop it. Someone recomended me a bio salt Natrum Phosphoricum. Is this ok to use for flu?
As i mentioned earlier, Flu is very very frequent in Singapore weather.

If there is a wet weather, then pl keep following medicines with you.
1. Dulcamara-30 and 200
2. Rhus Tox-30 and 200
3. Calc Carb-30 and 200

If the days of epidemy of Flu, pl take one dose of 6 pills of Influenzicum-200 once in fortnight.
For general purpose of fever conditions, pl keep with you following Bio-Chem medicines
1. Ferrum Phos-6x
2. Kali Mur-6x
3. Natrum Mur-6x
In addition to this
Belladona-30 and Euapatorium Perfolinum-30 are many times used in Flu.
