5 yr oldwith cold and phlegm

My 5 yr old catches a cold very easily when exposed to cold air, eating sweets and cold food.
Most of the times it starts with a pastry or sugar syrup based sweet like gulab jamun or rasagulla. Also when the weather changes.
It starts with a running nose, and after 2-3 days develops a wet cough. It usually doesn't affect her chest or lungs. whenever she coughs a lot of phlegm comes up but she doesn't know how to spit.... these are the usual symptoms. Sometimes she runs a temperature on the 2nd or 3rd day. I tried Pulsatilla for a very long time with no effective results. Please advice remedy.

I started the Heparsulph 30 only last Friday. She is coughing a lot especially at night. The cough is as if she is choking. Once she starts coughing, she is coughing for quite a while during night time.
Please advice.

She does not cough during the day. After 11:00 pm the cough starts and lasts pretty much the entire night. The phlegm comes upto her throat but she does not know how to spit.

You need the case to be taken in a more complete way as this is a chronic condition.

Also, with any remedy, please be careful with long term repetition as by doing that, your child can develop symptoms of the remedy which she never had before.

The idea of homeopathy is to stop dosing once improvement sets (at-least when using centesimal potencies).

With the right remedy, you should not need more than 2-3 doses of one potency for the improvement to set in.

Sorry for the delay in posting an update. We continued Hepar Sulph for more than a week and stopped. She was feeling better with no cough for 2 weeks but again started runny nose. No cough and nights are quite. Should I start Hepar again for runny nose with no symptoms.Thanks

At the start of a cold, when very little symptoms are there
you can give the child Ferrum Phos6x cell salt, 2 tabs every 4
hours- 4x a day. That should help stop illness from
even getting a foothold. Always stop
when things improve.

If the child is having clear mucous from the nose, you
can give Arsenicum Album 30c. Give one dose and
wait for effect for 5 hours. If there is improvement, wait
to see if symptoms come back and only then give
another dose, Then wait again. You do the dosing by
the reactions of the child- more is not better, if you
give more you can bring things back,

There are different remedies depending on the symptoms,
color of mucous, etc.
