dry cough in 9 month old babyHello all,
My son is suffering from dry cough since 1 day. It started with a cold and runny nose 4 days back.
When the cold started, I gave him BC6 and the runny nose has reduced and now there is slight discharge which is lumpy and milky in colour.
But his cough started since 1 day and it is hard and dry. He coughed in the night in his sleep as well. I suspect sometimes his cough is because of the nasal discharge going into his throat.
For the cough I gave him Koflet syrup and Nux Vomica 30 (2 doses). It helped with the blocked nose in the night but cough has not changed.
He is irritable if he does not sleep well and wants to be carried around. He has loss of appetite. But the thirst has increased.
He is 8.5 months old and weight around 8 kgs. He is passing 1 stool per day and the stools are soft and mustard yellow in colour.And has had history of cold and cough. He sweats a lot on his head, nose and back.
Please advice a remedy for him. Thank you all in advance.

I have an update about my son. I noticed his cough pattern today. He coughed from morning till about 11 am. He hardly coughed from 11 am to 5 pm. After that he is coughing as in the morning. I will be starting Calc Carb 30 only tomorrow as I dont have it with me right now.
Also, could you please advice about my elder son too? He too had cold since 5 days. But cold has healed fully. No nasal discharge. But every time he has cold, once the nose dries up, his cough starts. His cough has a unique pattern. He coughs a few times after getting up from sleep - whether it is morning or afternoon sleep. It is usually dry or sometimes loose.
I checked with the Remedy Finder and found Pulsatilla 30 as the remedy for him. Would it work?
He is thinly built, 4.5 yrs of age, Around 15 kgs.
Passes stools once in 2 days. It is dark brown and well formed.
From a few days, he has disturbed sleep, talks and shouts in his sleep and gets up. He cries readily and being very sensitive.
2 months back he was hospitalized for severe sinusitis, pharyngitis and tonsillitis. He still has a pus pocked on his left tonsil. He has history of allergy and eczema as well.
He has taken homeopathy medicine from a homeopath for almost 1.5 yrs.
Please be kind enough to help my elder one as well.
Thanks you very much in advance.
