Hi Evocationer,

Two days since the last dose of Calcarea Carb. 30c:

Better:
Tonsils - the right tonsil it's not touching the uvula anymore.
Nose: last night, in the last part, I've notice that he can breath through his nose, with his mouth closed. Also a little in the morning, after rising. In the rest of the day he breathed with his mouth open.
Sleep - he wakes up crying only twice, he is not tossing in his bed so much.
Stool - last stool was not smelling sour and looked normal.
Salivation - only a little in this evening.
Appetite - normal.
Mental - he was happy and content.
Eyes - less secretions in the morning.
Eczema - from the neck- the skin looks more clear.

Worse:
The irritation/eczema near the mouth it's looking better, but it's still worse than before Calcarea.

Same:
Fontanel open.

Thank-you.

Hi Evocationer,

6 days since the last dose of Calcarea Carb 30c:

Better then before Calcarea:
Tonsils - 5% (the right tonsil it's not touching the uvula)
Nose - 10% (he breath sometimes through his nose)
Sleep - 70% (he still toss in the bed, but he is not waking up crying and so often)
Stool - 50% ( the stool is still smelling sour, but his consistency changed, meaning that he is not containing undigested food. He still burn his skin.)
Salivation - 90% (only a few times in the day)
Mental - 100% (he is again happy and full of energy)
Eyes - 60%. (he still has a some discharge from the eyes in the morning)
Eczema - from the neck- 90%
The irritation/eczema near the mouth - 50%

Same:
Fontanela Still open - 0%


This morning I think he had a relapse because he drooled more, he couldn't breath through his nose, (after the Calcarea, in the mornings he could breath through his nose), the stool smelled very sour and burned his skin, and his eyes were full of secretions, white-cream colored. All improved during the day, but he was still unable to breath through his nose and I think it's a little beat worse than yesterday.

Thank you.

Repeat the remedy once, and let me know what happens. Hit the bottle 10 times instead of 5.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
OK. I will do that in the morning.
Thank you.

Hello,

Second day after Calcarea 30c,

Worse:
Stool - he had around 6 stools today, all different, the last one looked like the food was undigested and it burned his skin much more than usual. Now he has a pretty bad diaper rash.
Mental - he was grumpy today and fastidious with his food, even he was hungry.
Eczema from the neck still with some red points (was better in the morning, but in the evening the red points appeared).
Sleep - he woke up crying more last night.

Same:

The irritation/eczema near the mouth - no change.
Fontanela open.

Better:
Enlarged Tonsils - it looks like the tonsils are a little bit more small than before the last dose.
Nose blocked - sometimes partially breathing through his nose. I've managed to take a look in his nostrils today and he has a big polyp in his right nostril, which bloke it completely. In the left nostril the polyp it's smaller and it looks like he can breath through this one.

Thank you.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier as it has been Easter and I spend that time away usually.

Ok generally he seems to be doing quite well. Still some things not improving, or not improving enough, but they are all local (physical) symptoms rather than emotional/general ones, so that is encouraging.

Repeat the Calc carb one more time with 15 hits on the bottle, and we may consider using the 200c as the next step.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

Thank you for your response.

Generally he is doing very well. He did not took a cold for a month now and the weather, here in Europe, it's quite capricious, one day hot, another very cold and with a strong wind. Also I must say that the molar teeth braked into the gum much more quickly than before.

Today, in the morning, I gave him a dose of Calcarea Carb - 15 times hit.
The only thinks that changed after the dose was his mental state and his appetite. He was more weeping today and grumpy.

I have Calcarea Carbonica 200c for the next step.

Thank you again,
Adina

Ok good. Watch and wait for the moment. Let me know if anything worsens. Give me another update in a week. Don't use the 200c as yet.

Hi Evocationer,

Today right away after I gave him a fresh apple juice, made by myself, his skin under the lips, down to the chin, became red, like he was scalded. This happened for around 10 minutes and than the irritation it has reduced. He still have some little red spots now. I don't know if was from the apple juice or from something else that he ate today. It's not the first time that I give him a fresh apple juice made from this source of apples. No other symptoms, the stool it's fine. Could it be an aggravation? Or could be from the apple and Calcarea helped him to beat the "poison" fast?

Thank you.
Adina

Fresh apple juice shouldn't do that, but it is a minor symptom and may not have an relevance to the overall case. If it continues to be a problem we might need to add it in to the big picture.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

He woke up with the face clear, with no irritation.

Thank-you.

Ok it does seem like the 30c has reached its limit. We aren't seeing huge shifts now.

I would like you to give him a single dose of the 200c now. Hit the bottle 5 times only.

Sounds good so far. Keep watching and waiting.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

I think he caught a cold from me. He coughed twice today, in the morning and in the middle of the day. I think he has a few nose secretions that are going through the throat, because of the polyps. The nose does not seems blocked with secretions, he can breath with his mouth closed. His colds usually starts more powerful with a lot of secretions and sneezing. So I guess that he is and he will be OK due to Calcarea Carbonica.
I'll keep you informed if anything worsens. Hope not, I have confidence that Calcarea it's the right remedy for him.

Thank you.
Adina

Hi Evocationer,

This morning it looks like he has a little bit more secretions in his nose, that are getting down through his throat. Until he can cough the post nasal mucus make him a little hoarse and it's sounds like he need to hawk.
What should I do?
