Please find out some of her repeated dreams.

Is she neat and tidy or careless and shabby with regard to her clothes, toys and study table etc.

repeated dreams of water in a bottle and mango juice. no frightening dreams.

Two remedies that may be helpful to her are ARS ALB and KALI CARB.

Since she has taken GRAPHITES recently, it won't be right to give her any other remedy now. Also, ARS ALB is an antidote to GRAPHITES and if given now, can undo the benefit of GRAPHITES.

I would recommend to wait and watch for a week or two and see if Graphites is working on her.

Then, if she needs further treatment for her blocked nose, start with KALI CARB 30C once every 4 to 6 hours for a day only. After about 4 doses, stop to see her response.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
thanks, will wait for a week and give kali carb and report.
 
starzan 4 years ago
given 4 doses of kali carb 30 yesterday. this morning she had severe headache and running nose. most likely due to medicines since no fever etc. pls advice what next to be done. thanks
 
starzan 4 years ago
It seems there is a response, may be a little over-response. No need to worry. Don't give anything for the next 10 days.

This will pass and she will gradually get better. Lets hope, within the next two days, this aggravation will be over and curing will start.

You have to make sure that during this time, she doesn't take any other medicines or remedies.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
the headache was better in the morning itself. the running and blocked nose seems as before and there is no change.
 
starzan 4 years ago
It has been a week now and there has been no perceptible change in her nose block. pls advice if anything needs to be given now. I do not know if the headache last week was due to the medicine or a random occurance since it was too brief.
 
starzan 4 years ago
Would you like to try ARS ALB now?

This was one of the remedies at the top but I didn't give it as it is an antidote to Graphites.

It can be tried now.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
shall I give ars alb 30 4 doses in a day and stop as before or is there any change?will ars alb 30 do or any other potency?
 
starzan 4 years ago
Please give 30C potency some 4 doses on the same day, within 24 hours.

Watch for the next few days and update me.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
given 4 doses of ars alb 30 3 days back. very little improvement in nose block, but wheezing has worsened. no change in rash. no stomach pain or headache so far. pls advice
 
starzan 4 years ago
We should wait and watch for a week. Once the symptoms stabilize, we can decide on what to do next.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
over the last one week after ars alb there has been no change. kindly suggest. thanks
 
starzan 4 years ago
dear Dr rishimba: It has been more than 10 days after ars alb 30 and there has been no perceptible change in her nose block or any other symptom (rash/headache/pain abdomen). she also used to have sensitive teeth, which over time has improved. pls advice.
