Infant suffering from severe GERD and eczema

Hi there,

My 6 months old son has been suffering from severe GERD and eczema. To cut long story short finally doctor has given Omeprazole(10mg) and Neocate for last 2 months after trying few other milk. Doctor has strongly advised us to use Elocon so we have been using this also for last two months. But no improvement in his condition.

He has developed following Symptoms since the age of 4weeks:
- He strongly refuses the feed,and sometimes he feel hungry but refuse to take after couple of sips or one sip,very uncomfortable , cries a lot then he puts his finger on his mouth and get content without milk, only sucks his finger.

- First 4 months he used to vomit a lot but now it is bit better but not completely.

- His poo is dark green/black

- From couple of weeks Whatever milk he takes, he takes it in lying position only.

- He raises his head and twist his body.

- His sleep is very poor.

- His eczema is all over his face and body.

- He burps a lot.

- He takes only approx 300ml MILK in 24hrs.

Please advice any homeopathy remedy.

Thanks & Regards,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I can attempt to make a homoeopathic prescription for you if you like. Homoeopathy of course needs to individualise each case, and assumes we will see an overall improvement in the health of the patient (should improve all symptoms not just one or two).

I can post a questionnaire I use for children, but it is a broad one so for a child of 6 months many of the questions will not be relevant or cannot be answered. Do your best to answer anything that is suitable for him, but the most important ones will be the last few (pregnancy and birth). In clinic when treating infants, I find that information can be vital to making a good prescription.

Describe each physical complaint/associated set of symptoms in detail. Please include the following when doing this:

1. Appearance
2. Sensation or pain
3. Situations/events/triggers for making it worse
4. Situations/events/triggers for making it better
5. Event that seemed to start the complaint
6. Other sensory features – smell, sound, taste, tactile etc

Make sure each complaint is done separately. Do not group them together. This is for physical complaints/diseases.


MENTAL STATE OF THE CHILD (IMPORTANT)

1. When the physical complaint is active, what is his/her emotional state like? What does he/she do? What does she/he want you to do?

2. Does he/she describe any unusual sensation or pain in the body, especially when they are complaining of something?

3. What fears does he/she have? How does she/he react?

4. Was there any incident in the past that had a great impact? What happened at the time? Is there any ongoing reaction to this event? How does he/she talk about it?

5. Is there any story (book, fairytale, cartoon, movie etc) that seems to really resonate with her/him? What does he/she say about it?

6. What kind of fantasies does she/he describe to you? How does this translate down into play, games, toys? Does he/she tend to draw particular things over and over? If so what are they? If you point to these images, what does she/he say about them?

7. Does he/she describe any dreams or nightmares to you, and what are they? How does she/he react on waking from them?

8. How is he/she when interacting with other children? What about sports or games? How about obeying rules or social conventions?

9. How is she/he when interacting with older people? Is there any difference between family or friends and strangers in terms of reactions and behavior?

10. What kind of activities does he/she enjoy doing? Which of these do she/he spend the most time at?

11. What qualities seem to make your child different from other children?

12. How does your child cope with school, school work, study, deadlines, speaking in front of others, following directions etc?

13. What kind of questions does he/she tend to ask you or other adults?

14. What makes her/him laugh? What makes him/her cry?

15. What makes him/her angry or irritable?

16. What does your child do when alone?

17. Is there a particular person or type of person that he/she reacts to, and what kind of reaction?


GENERAL STATE OF YOUR CHILD

1. What position does he/she sleep in?
2. Is there any position he/she seems unable to sleep in?
3. Any unusual behavior during sleep?
4. Any problems with sleep?
5. What foods are craved (cravings are strong desires) What foods are hated?
6. What drinks are craved? What drinks are hated?
7. How does he/she react when hungry, or hunger is prolonged?
8. How does the weather affect?
9. How does the temperature affect?
10. Are there any other environmental influences negative or positive (season, noise, music, moon, light, dark, day, night, time, smells etc.)
11. Problems with stool or bowel habit?
Problems with urine or bladder habit?
12. Where does he/she sweat most? Does it stain or smell unusual?

PREGNANCY AND BIRTH

1. What kind of health problems occurred while you were pregnant with your child?

2. Were there any other stresses or traumas that occurred?

3. Did the birth itself have any problems?

4. Do you remember if any symptoms occurred suddenly during pregnancy that then vanished after your child was born? Especially important are any emotional or mental changes during this time.

As I said earlier, the most important ones are the questions about pregnancy. Can the mother give no information at all? My ability to prescribe successfully relies on the quality AND quantity of information provided.

Initially her pregnancy was going well but the last 2 months was bit unwell. She was having pain in between the chest on the lower side just above the tummy. Dr had given Omeprazole and Rantidine but no improvement. At times the pain was so sever that she couldn't eat, drink or sleep well. Still she is having the same pain. Because of that pain she couldn't eat properly even now. At the end of her pregnancy she was bit stressed also. When none medicine worked dr said this is due to pregnancy and it will be ok after delivery so just keep on taking the same medicine.

Baby had passed his first pooh inside her tummy and water had broken around 12hrs before his birth.

Get her to describe that pain exactly, in as much detail as she can remember it.

What kind of stress was she under at the time?
