7 1/2 years old daughter's cough

These symptoms used to happen every month when she was 3 years old, then 4 times a year when she turned 6. But now this is continuous since July. The only treatment that helped her before starting with the homeopatic remedies was mixing ventolin + plumicort + atrovent in the nebulizer & she inhales it 3 times a day for the 1rst 10 days then once a day plumicort for 2 to 3 months.

SYMPTOMS: She starts first with a dry cough every 15 mns the 1rst day, then continuous dry cough the 2nd day without stopping. The 3rd day she either starts the cold with a wet cough or only cough & the dr uses these terms: allergy, asthma, even bronchitis. No fever. I took to a homeopath 1rst week of September.
Monday, sept 14: cough started.
Dr gave her phos 30 5 pills 3 times a day every 1 hour for 2 days
Tuesday, Sept 15: cough attack for 2 hours between 7:30pm & 9:00pm. Then she slept
Wednesday, sept 16: morning, cold, sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, wet cough.
Friday, sept 19: green nasal mucous, stuffy nose & cough. Dr gave her Pulsatilla 30 2 pills every hour 3 times a day for 2 days. She felt immediately much better after the 1rst day. Nose clear, no cough ( except for little bit in the night), no congestion.
Sunday, sept 21: she came back home after playing outdoors ( we live in Dubai where the weather is so humid with 40 temperature). She told me that every day, they go outside during the breaks, sweat a lot , then go back inside an air conditionned classroom. So cough started again in the afternoon, got worse in the evening between 7:30pm & 9:00pm with runny nose but nothing to blow, voice has changed (rough) & throat pain from the strong cough. After falling asleep she coughed little bit till 11:00pm. The second morning, weak cough again , not frequent, stuffy nose, voice has changed. Dr gave her pulsatilla 200 2 pills once a day for 3 days. Today was her 1rst dose.

I have a video of her that shows her cough on Sunday between 7:30pm & 9:00pm. If it helps I can send it by email.

I feel that we still didn't find the right remedy for her. Any suggestions?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It seems that the homeopath thinks her remedy
is Pulsatilla. Why don't you wait for a week and
see how this works out. Nothing is instant.

In June he saw her the 1rst time before we leave for the summer holiday. He was sure that she a a phos person. When I text messaged him about her cough in July he insisted on giving her phos but it never helped her. I had to put her again on the nebulizer.
I will wait one week as you said. Thank you for your reply.

My daughter started with a wet cough on Thursday but not frequent.
Friday at 3:00 am, she woke up with a stuffy & runny nose, wet cough but also not frequent.
Saturday, her wet cough became more frequent from the sternal notch with runny, stuffy nose with some sneezing. The doctor gave her pulsatilla 30: 5 pills every 2 hours for 4 times.
She took her last dose at 2:30pm.
At 3:00 pm, continuous cough for 2 hours, with fever 38.0.
I called her doctor, he told me to give her Phos 200: 5pills every 1 hour for 3 times.
Now it s 8:00 pm, she is still coughing little bit less than before, but still frequent & her fever is 38.5.
She feels tired. I gave her panadol.
Any suggestions?

What color is the mucous?

Do you have any cell salts on hand 6x?
 
simone717 5 years ago
Her mucuous is mostly white little bit yellowish. She blew her nose a lot during the day.

I m now at the pharmacy. Is cell salt same as tissue salt? The pharmacist is asking me which number? She has dr.schubler salts 6x bit different numbers:
1: c fluorata
2: c. Phosphorica
3. F. Phosphoricum
4. K. Muriaticum
5. K. Phosphoricum
6. K. Sulfuricum
7. M. Phosphoricum
8. Etc......
 
thereseazar 5 years ago
Yes, it is Tissue salts.

Get, Kali Mur 6x, Nat Sulph, and Cal Sulph- all 6x- and Mag phos 6x.

Give her 2 tabs of each at one time ( dissolve under tongue)

Give 4 times a day.

Report tomorrow.

Can I dissolve it for her in water? Usually it s easier for her to take the remedies this way.
It s nightime here in Dubai. Should I give it to her every 6 hours or I can give her now 1 dose & wait till tomorrow morning for the 3 left?
 
thereseazar 5 years ago
You can dissolve in a couple tablespoons
of water. You can give it now.
 
simone717 5 years ago
My daughter is doing much better.
Thanks a lot!
 
thereseazar 5 years ago
Good to hear that. You can reduce
the amount of doses to 3 times a day,
2 times a day, once a day- as you feel
it is needed.

Best,

Simone

My daughter has now runny nose again but from her right nostril only. The left is open & not runny. Right is stuffy & runny. The previous cough is still there but not frequent at all. Her cough is wet but not loose as if there s very thick mucuous stuck in her throat.

Clear nasal discharge
 
thereseazar 5 years ago
Now from both sides

Hi-

you can switch to nat mur 6x and give
2 tabs -3 times a day. If she starts
having more mucous or sneezing then
stop.

It looks like the cold /cough is getting
better and her body is handling it. A
good thing to do is give extra Vitamin C.
She could have 2000 mgs and divide it
up into 4 doses. Also squeezing a lemon
into a cup of hot water and put honey
in it is a soothing drink and gets more
Vitamin C into the person.

Hi. I was still giving my daughter the cell salts & her cough was still there but not frequent. But today she has again her old cough with some stuffy nose. Usually if I don't give her pulsatilla it gets really worse & will end up coughing nonstop for 2 hours in the late afternoon . Sometimes it turns into a bronchitis. Should I continue with the cell salts or I give her pulsatilla now? If pulsatilla how many times a day & for how long?
 
thereseazar 5 years ago
What have you been giving her?

Nat mur 6x alone?

Or the other salts that you gave at the start?

Does your daughter have asthma?

Is this happening due to being out in the hot weather for
school breaks/play and then going back into the
air conditioning classroom again?

I was still giving her the cell salts of before not the Nat mur. I stopped yesterday because she got from her brother the stomach flu & she was very sick with high fever. I was giving her ars alb & nux vomica yesterday. She s much better now.
Regarding her cough. Since she was 3, the doctors tell me that her cough is a type of allergy. We used to treat it with pulmicort, atrovent & ventolin in the nebulizer. What s strange is that last year she had only 2 cough attacks all year & it was followed by the flu. She didn't get sick all year. But now, since we went to the mountains in Lebanon for the holidays (July) she s been coughing. We came back to Dubai in September & the cough is still there. Cough without a cold, stimes followed with a cold, wet cough sometimes with wheezing in the chest. The Pylsatilla is helping her a lot but only for few days & then it comes back again.

Hi,

What has to happen is her full case has to be taken.
She is most probably having a drip due to allergies in her back
throat sinus passage. One can have this drip go on and hardly
notice it- especially at night.

Then the mucous gets into the bronchial area and develops into
a chest cough and is much harder for the body to throw it off,
bc now the body has the drip ( allergy cause) and bronchitis to deal
with.

Last year when she did not get sick often, she may have finally
adapted to your area, weather, pollen, and other allergens so
it did not happen. When you went to the mountains, she was
probably exposed to other pollens she is allergic to. After you
go thru this reaction the immune system is weaker and so
things that did not bother you start to bother you again.
If the immune system is strong enough it handles these things.
They are the immune system over- reacting to allergens as if
they are a threat-the immune system is out of balance.

You can post for someone to take her full case for allergies or
try another homeopath. I think she should also be tested for
the genetic blood problem that your other child has, bc this
can make people anemic off and on - and not show symptoms,
so she may need Ferrum Phos off and on to get her blood strong
and perhaps other remedies to help her blood. You need to get
her tested and put that into the thread or tell the homeopath
if that is the case- bc that can possibly be causing the immune
system to be weak which causes all the rest.

Hello.
It has been now 2 1/2 weeks. Tina had no cough attacks at all. Her doctor treated her with pulsatilla 30 for 5 days on November 4. She is fine now.
 
thereseazar 5 years ago
That is good news. I would stick with
that Dr. I would take your other kids
to be treated with him also- it always works best when the homeopath can
see children in person.

Best,

Simone
