Intermittent Headache of 7 year child

My niece (elder sister’s daughter, 7-year old) is complaining of irregular headache for one and half month.

It occurs sometimes at back of head, sometimes at front, sometimes at left or right side, and lasts for 5-10 minutes. It does not occur at whole head at a time. Sometimes during headache, eyes become slight red. When she runs, the back head pains.

A local homeopaths medicine was used, no improvement. An allopath gave a cefradine, a paracetamol, and a fexofenadine syraps, but no considerable improvement. I initially thought it might be due to study pressure; but final exam is over some 20 days ago, but headache still occur intermittently.

She is rather tall, slender, cool-tempered, and smiling. No noticeable acidity/gas or any other problem.

Can anyone help?

Thanks homeo.mzp,

Yesterday, suddenly the baby had vomiting (3 times) and abdomen pain. Her mother rushed her to a brain specialist who prescribed Pizotifen and paracetamol for headache. I googled Pizotifen, and it says it is for migraine headache.

I could not get chance to start Belladona. ANd now I'm not sure if allopathy and homeopathy can be taken safely together.
 
JollyBoy 5 years ago
they can be taken together, and if homeopathy works allopahty can be cut down.
 
homeo.mzp 5 years ago
Hi homeo.mzp

after allopathy and homeopathy medication, the headache is gone now. sleep and mental freshness are good. confidence same as before.
thanks for your prescription.

One simple problem: the baby often makes mistakes in spelling, and often forgets names in study. what medicine can be used to address this and to boost memory of small school children?

I assume this is a simple and common issue for many.

regards,
Jollyboy
