This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Does he like cool atmosphere, like air conditioned room?

Does his complaints get aggravated if he takes cold drinks/ water from the fridge/ ice cream etc?
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Thanks for asking.

Yes he generally like cool atmosphere, we don't have AC at home but we needs to have fan at good speed while sleeping.
Juice is instant trigger for cold cough for him. Whenever it rains suddenly and weather becomes somewhat moist and cold, he will get cold, increased itching.

Procure Ars.iodide..200c..30 ml liquid sealed bottle from any reputed manufacturer.

Mix 2 to 3 drops in about 30 ml of water, and give him a tablespoonful as one dose.

Give him the balance water in the evening, after stirring well with a spoon.

Mix a fresh dose next day, and repeat the above. You should increase the mixing time progressively.

Continue for a week and report back.

Make sure that there are no odors on him, around him and in his mouth while taking the medicines.

Don't use camphor products, room fresheners, deodorants, scents etc while the treatment is going on.

Avoid the use of inhalers as much as possible.

montair is very addictive and has lot of side effects. Try to taper off slowly.
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Sure, will let you know once we get and use it for a week. Thanks

One qq:

Mix 2 to 3 drops in about 30 ml of water, and give him a tablespoonful as one dose.

This has to be given as first thing in morning ?
kumarsids 4 years ago
Preferably. Not necessarily. Just observe the precaution on odors. Strong scents of any kind antidote homeopathic remedies.
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Thanks. Had a follow-up question on odour part. What about mosquito repellent smell since we use them regularly.
kumarsids 4 years ago
Do you use liquids like all out?
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Yes, we use Good Night liquid repellent
kumarsids 4 years ago
No problem. Switch it off half an hour before giving the medicine. You can switch it on after half an hour of giving the medicine.

Hi, Things got delayed on our end since we went out of station and I didn't wanted to get started with medicine while on the move. Yesterday unfortunately i was able to procure Arsenicum Iodate dilution 30c and not 200c since shop was not having sealed bottle for 200c. While I will try a different shop today, just wanted to know if 30c dilution is an option or not.

kumarsids 4 years ago
You can start with 30c.
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Thanks, will start from tomorrow morning.

Today it is 5th day of medication. Just an update that last few days I noticed increased nose irritation and eye itching, he always tries to put his finger in nostrils or breathe hardly through nose. Not sure if anything to do with medication or that's just coincidence. Thought of letting you know. I will continue for 2 more days as advised earlier and then wait for your further advice.

kumarsids 4 years ago
Is there any improvement in any of the symptoms?

Any new symptoms you observed?

How is he overall?
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Overall no other visible changes. Only nose and eyes irritation has increased. Have stopped Montair for last few days and reduced to one puff of Budecort 200 per day.
kumarsids 4 years ago
It is good that you stopped Montair. Some worsening is expected because of that, initially. How many mg you were using earlier?

How is his overall energy level?

Stop giving Ars.iodide after 7 days and report back.
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Energy level is all good and he is as active as normally.
He was prescribed Montair 4mg.

Sure, will get back after continuing for 2 more days.

kumarsids 4 years ago

Just wanted to update on completion of 7 day prescribed dose. On day 2, I had stopped giving him Montair 4 mg and reduced Budecort 200 to one puff per day. Between day 3 to day 6, there was significant increase in eye itching and nose irritation. On day 7 these symptoms have reduced.
Activity wise he was normal throughout the course and there were no other visible changes. There was no cough during this period.

Pls advice further and let me know if any info is required.

kumarsids 4 years ago
That is good.

Now wait for a couple of days and observe. If there is an increase in eye/ nose irritation, restart the medicine, in a similar way.

As long as he remains in the present condition, no further medicine. Once, symptoms reappear, start again.

Mixing for more time progressively is very important. You must have reached to mixing 50 times with the spoon by now.

Restart after mixing 55 times..next day 60 times etc. The progressive increase every day, will make the medicine more potent, and works smoothly.

Let me know, once you restart it.
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Sure, thanks. Will keep you updated.
kumarsids 4 years ago
Hi, Nose itching and eye irritation has increased again, not very severe though. More prominent at night on bed. Should I start medicine again ?
kumarsids 4 years ago
Yes. Use for a week as suggested and report back.
gavinimurthy 4 years ago
Hi, have started from today. Last night he was rattling his teeth too, can I give him dose of allopathic deworming medicine in parallel or any homeopathic medicine ?
