My kid suffering from chronic cough for 4 years

My kid who is turning 5 this week has gone through tough times in last 3 years mostly due to cough, frequent fevers once in 2 weeks and wheezing sometimes.
X-rays show clear chests, he had otis media treated with grommets, Barium investigations revealed GERD, CT scan showed lung collapse and pneumonitis once.
All secondary conditions like otitis media, pneumonia and lungs were treated with allopathy but they could not find the primary causes. All allergy tests could not
find any allergy. Though he is treated for ashthma for 3 years and GERD for 2 months, none of them have stopped the cough or recurring fevers. Fever stops in summer
and returns in winter. Cough never stops. It is mostly consistent dry cough with varying intensity. a few times in 3 years, he had cough with vomiting mostly in the morning.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Today morning after getting up from bed, he had lot of cough and vomited. No sputum in vomit but only white watery liquid, slightly frothy.

His sufferings continue.
Any one can help?
bzohara 4 years ago
Please give him one dose Sulphur 30 any time during the day but not at night.
Do not give him any thing sour to eat or drink.
Update next day
telescope 4 years ago
Thanks Telescope for the reply. I bought a homeopathic kit few days before joining the forum.
1. It has Sulphur 200 and 1m. No 30c. from other threads I understood that wrong dosage can not be given. Or can I give Sulphur 200 with less pellets?
2. Should I give directly in tongue or dissolved in water?
Thanks again
bzohara 4 years ago
I could get Sulphur 30c through a friend and gave one dose of 3 pellets in 30 ml of water today around 2 PM.
The cough persists through the day, may be mild reduction.

But now the kid went to sleep and he could not sleep due to severe cough once in 10 min making him wake-up.

before posting this query, I tried Cina 30c last week for night cough and it worked well to make him sleep. But did not improve situation in the morning.

1. Should I antidote Cina given last week?
2. or Can I give Cina again in the night.. will it work with the given sulphur dose?

Kindly advise.
bzohara 4 years ago
Telescope sir, The dose of Sulphur did not help much. Again today morning after waking up, he had severe cough as if he is trying to bring the food from stomach. He could vomit little bit of water he had in stomach. It reduced one hour after waking-up. But loose cough continues. What could be done?
Should I give Sulphur again today?

Do not give any more medicine. You have to give some time to the medicine to work. Update tomorrow
telescope 4 years ago
Thanks for the reply. I did not give any medicine yesterday. The story repeated today morning. The kid woke up at 5:30 due to cough. He did vomit little bit of white watery liquid. No food seen. Continues to cough for more than one hour - loose dry cough.

I'll wait for your instruction for further medicine.

Hello Telescope sir,
I did not give any medicine for 3 days, but NO improvement. Yesterday around 1:30 AM in sleep, child had severe spasmodamic cough. he had coughed more than 100 times in 3 min and started crying..but not able to cry due to continuous cough. He coughs in double manner ( like "Lok lok" and immediately again "Lol lok"). I could not bear the trouble and gave Cina 200c available with me 3 pellets in tongue. Within a minute, his cough stopped. later in the morning it turned to a single cough once in 5 min/10 min. This time it is more barking.

From the past, Cina 200c always works for him in night for spasmodic cough but does not help the persisitent day cough.

what could be the next steps? Sulphur does not see to provide any relief.

Kindly reply

Dear Bzohara,
Please answer few questions:

1. does he get coughing after he drinks milk or consumes any dairy items?

2. Does he vomit food along with coughing during day time?

3. Did your doctor check Medicine for GERD?

4. Is there any particular time when he coughs? (eg. around mid night, evening, early morning. )

mitesh1 4 years ago
Hello Mitesh1, thanks for picking it up.

His cough went through various changes in year. Current situation is as below to your questions.

1. He feels okay after dairy items. but coughs after eating chocolates ( caramel ), sweets or oily items. In the morning, his cough reduces after milk.

2. No vomiting happens in day time. Vomiting happens only early morning after 3 AM and normally at 6:30 AM after he gets-up. if it is 3 AM, food comes from previous night. if it is 6:30 AM, only water and anything he ate in morning comes out.

3. For GERD, Allopathy Doctor gave Nexpro Junior ( PPI ) and Domstal. we gave for 3 weeks, but not much improvement. last 2 days, he had only eaten Nexpro as the first thing in morning and he vomited that with cough.

4. He coughs heavily for 2 hours after waking up until he has his breakfast and it improves over the day. Good during noon. Again starts in the evening and high when he goes to bed. After some sleep, again after midnight.
Maximum cough at 6 AM and 3 AM. Moderate cough at 9 PM. best time 10 AM - 2 PM.

Thank you for the details.
Please follow dr reva's course of calc carb 30, phos 30 and lypo 30. One dose of each medicine only once a day. Keep gap of 2 hours between each dose. Repeat for 3 days and revert back.
Give one wet dose of justicia adhatoda Q (mother tincture) 15-30 minutes before going to bed. Check for 3 days and get back.
Although these remedies are harmless Please read profile before following.

One dose equals one drop in 20 ml of lukewarm purified water.

mitesh1 4 years ago
Thanks Mitesh.
I'll follow your instructions. I could not find the thread with Dr. Reva's prescription of same medicines yet.

Is this Lypo 30 or Lyco 30?
Can you confirm?
I guess, I have these medicines with me ( if it is Lyco 30 )

I need to look for justicia adhatoda Q and buy it.
bzohara 4 years ago
Sorry, its lycopodium. Please buy justicia adhatoda Q. Also get hydrastis 30. You will need it.

mitesh1 4 years ago
Thanks Mitesh for the clarification. The next day the cough was so bad that I took the kid to local homeopathic doctor. She said the cough is very bad and asked to stop all medicines. She prescribed Aconite, Spongia and Hepar Sulph in the same order in night. But this did not help and his cough kept sequence moved more from midnight to morning. She then asked us to switch to Nux Vomica 200. I mentioned about your prescription and she said, it can go along with Nux Vomica.

we started with Nux Vomica 200 for one day and then along with Calc Carb 30, Phosporous 30, Lyco 30 also from yesterday morning and there is definite improvement. Though the cough continues, it reduced 50% and he could atleast sleep now. The cough is no more choking but more dry/persistent.

Justicia arrived only today and I could not include hydrastis 30, as I already ordered.

Summary, Nux Vomica helped along with Calc Carb.

Please advise how to continue. How long should we give these medicines.

Thanks for your continuous support also on behalf of the suffering kid.
bzohara 4 years ago
Morning one dose calc carb 30.
Afternoon one dose Phos 30.
Evening one dose Lyco 30.

Repeat this for 3 days.
You can discontinue Nux vom 200 if you wish to.

Wait for 4 days and report with changes.

Many prayers for your kid.

Thanks for the quick reply and I'll do the same for 3 days and report back.

Should I start with Justicia tonight? I got the order delivered.
Also, should I order hrdrastis 30? It takes a few days to get delivery.
bzohara 4 years ago
You can give one dose of justica Q tonight and night after tomorrow.
yes, order hydrastis 30. But don't give hydrastis for 1 weak.

Hello Mitesh,
Sorry for posting earlier than 4 days. Today is the 3rd day of his current remedies.

After taking justicia Q on first day, he has vomited once yesterday and today morning. Both the times there was some sputum coming out with food.
Is this some aggravation?

He was better for 1st and 2nd day, as I already mentioned but today morning 3 AM, he got severe cough and struggled until 7 AM, then it reduced again. he vomited the morning food mixed with some small amount of sputum. I called the local doctor, she advised SBL Stodal syrup, which did not help at all.

is this due to sputum coming out? what could be done now?

bzohara 4 years ago
Hello bzohara,
Vomitting of sputum along with food might trigger bit cough but its a good sign. You will notice some good change in 1-2 days.
Don't give justica for the time being and let the medicine work.

mitesh1 4 years ago
Today is the 3rd day for Calc Carb, Phosphorous and Lyco.

Should I stop giving tomorrow or continue?
bzohara 4 years ago
Stop from tomorrow. Report after 2 days.
Please report if u see coughing at anytime ending with a sneeze.

Many prayers for your kid.

mitesh1 4 years ago
