Recurring cold in 10yr old

My son was born premature by 1 month 5 days. Since birth he has frequent cold and had to use antibiotics. He was born with enlarged tonsills. He now has pollips and adeniods. He is under homeo treatment from past 8 years. We have used belladona 1M, calc carb 1M and Thuja 1M each almost 3 times during different stages.

The complaint is still same. If he sits under fan, he starts rubbing his nose and sneezes. Early in the morning he spits phelgm. He complains for itching in throat almost every week. He would cough and says that due to itching he does that. His nose blocks after midnight and he would breath with his mouth.

Please suggest

Did you try a constitutional treatment on him?
rishimba 9 years ago
Hi Rishi,

Thanks for responding.

You have prescribed calc carb 200 once in fortnight.

Please refer the case here http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/418980/6

He currently has nose block as temperatures have dropped a bit. He also feels itching in his throat

Please prescribe

Tell me how did he respond to CALC CARB 200C?

Did he respond partially? What are the changes you have seen in him after he took this remedy?

To cure this bout of cold, you can try CALC CARB 30C once every 4 hours for 2 days maximum.

Once he is cured of this bout of cold, he needs to get a high potency constitutional dose to get him going for some months.

So, the question is: Did CALC CARB help him at all?
rishimba 9 years ago
I didnt observed any significant change after giving calc carb 200. I repeated every fort night.

He complained about the itching in the throat and was not comfortable going to school. Then I have given him hephar sulp 30 one time and he seems to be good after that for 3 days.

It again started.

Shall I give calc carb 30 and watch him?
geethap123 9 years ago
No, please give him PHOSPHORUS 200C three doses only...each dose 12 hours apart.

If CALC CARB has not helped at all, it seems its not his constitutional remedy then.

I will again go through the thread and find out which constitution could he be if he was not a calcarea child.
rishimba 9 years ago
Thank you for your attention. I will give him 3 doses and update you
geethap123 9 years ago
I have given 3 doses of phosphorus 200c to my son and still there is no significant reaction. He still sneezes early in the morning as he has slept under fan and also spits phlegm early in the morning.
geethap123 9 years ago
Try CALC CARB 30C every six hours for 2 days only.

Wait and watch his response in the next two days. If he doesn't respond, I will re-take his case again and find an alternative remedy.
rishimba 9 years ago
Thanks for the quick response. I will start today and will report his response.

My daughter is suffering with sever cold and huge phlegm. As mentioned by you earlier, I have give phosphorus 200c 2 times with 12 hrs apart on monday night and tuesday morning. She now has cough. Her nose is not running. Drinking lot of water. Her throat is stuffed. Please suggest
geethap123 9 years ago
If you have given her phosphorus 200C two doses, its enough to start the reaction. Let her immunity do the rest.

One cannot cut-short the duration of the cold to two to three days once it has already developed. One must make sure she doesn't suffer secondary bacterial infection.
rishimba 9 years ago
I couldnt start the medication as I didnt had calc carb 30 with me. To my surprise, he was absolutely good. His breadth was calm yesterday night and absolutely no sneezing or spitting of phlegm this morning.

Today is 5th days after I have given phosphorus. Is this all because of phosphorus? Seems its bit late in action.

Now, shall I skip calc carb for now? Do I have to repeat Phosphorus?
geethap123 9 years ago
Yes, skip calc carb for now. Seems the reaction to phosphorus was a bit late.

Don't repeat phosphorus now. Give him again when symptoms relapse.

My daughter ihas vomitings. She vomitted after 6 hrs of taking food. Just vomitted the solutions in stomach and no food. She doesnt have fever

What can i give her? Please suggest
geethap123 9 years ago
How many times has she vomited?

Was it because some food poisoning or indigestion? What is the color and smell like? Is she vomiting cough?

If she has vomited just once and feeling better, you needn't worry. But, if this feeling of nausea and vomits continue, you have to investigate the cause.

IPEC is a good remedy for children if the nausea is periodic, persistent and increases when lying down.
rishimba 9 years ago
I have given 3 doses of IPEC and after 3rd dose, she is completely back to normal.

Many thanks.

She still has phlegm in throat and a little cough. This condition is from 3 weeks for now. Should I use any?

Please suggest
geethap123 9 years ago
What are the remedies that produced response in her during cough and cold earlier?

Also, let me know her modalities, phlegm color and consistency etc. Which area is most affected, is she coughing, what is the sound like...
rishimba 9 years ago
Earlier she responded well to phosphorus. But from past 2 times there is no difference.

Her throat is stuffed when she wakes up and later it reduces. Not sure on the color of it as she cant spit and there is no nasal discharge. She complains of ear pain when phlegm is more. When she coughs we can feel the phlegm.
geethap123 9 years ago
Give her PULSATILLA 200C some three doses only, each dose 8 hours apart.

Let me know after 3 days.
rishimba 9 years ago
I have given 3 doses of pulsatilla 200c and her phlegm is totally gone. Her lungs and throat are clear. She now has dry cough and is continuous with low grade fever. While asleep she doesnt cough but when she is awake she coughs continuously.
Please advice
geethap123 9 years ago
Please teach her how to gargle with warm saline water. This will make the cough loose and clear out. If it doesn't get cleared in next two days, we will resort to a suitable remedy based on presenting symptoms.
rishimba 9 years ago

My daughter aged 4yrs is complaining of stomach ache and her stool is dark greenish black in color with mucus. He is not eating properly from past 2 days.

geethap123 9 years ago
Try CHAMOMILLA 30C some doses once every 4 to 6 hours for two days maximum.

If she doesn't respond in 2 days, please come back with more details.
rishimba 9 years ago
