Homeopet Cough: $14.29


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

16 months boy unable to expel phlegm, suffocating cough

my son is having cough which is bringing up phlegm but he takes it back and he sort of choke when coughing, i have seen doctors prescribing medicine so the phlegm expels through motions rather than vomit but i can't any medicine in homeopathy, is there any medicine to correct this ?

i consulted a homeopath yesterday, he said he is having minor congestion but having throat infection due to which he is having choking type cough and unable to expel mucus. he gave medicine but there is no improvement

recently my son had stomach infection for which he took antibiotics and since then his cough is not leaving. i tried aconite 30 and it helped but only for few hours

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him Pulsatilla 30 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects.

I gave him Pulsatilla 30 but it didn't help so i consulted a doctor and he diagnosed pneumonia (his right lung his having phlegm) and given injections for 3 days and antibiotic syrup and mucus diluting syrup

He is better now but his cough is not going. He coughs and brings the mucus but then takes it back. He do not cough regularly but when he coughs, he coughs it for a minute or 2 and his face becomes red. Asked doctor about it and he said that the mucus is releasing so he will eventually cough. Is there any medicine so his lungs are mucus free so he do not cough so hard ?

Please give him belladonna 30 and ipecac 30 twice a day for 7 days.
One dose means 2 pills or drops each of both the remedies.

Please give belladonna 30 and nux vomica 30 twice a day for a week.

If his chest is clear , it sounds like he is having
A mucous drip down the back of throat sinus passage. This will
Make one cough and choke -
The drip has to stop, so he then has enough energy to get better
On his own.

I have been thru this with my children and myself several times.
You can add in some cell salts - ferrum phos 6x,
Nat sulph 6x, Kali Mur 6x. Take 2 tabs of each
And dissolve in a cup of water. Give him sips of this every 3 hours.
You should notice a decrease in the cough /drip.

You can try this along with what kadwa says,
Unless he objects.

fizspace 2 years ago
he again coughed last night but in the morning he was having green phlegm coming from his nose. i am also giving Simone's suggested cell salts combo
fizspace 2 years ago
You may revert back to bell and ipecac. Merc may also be tested later.

You may want to see regular dr/ pediatrician to get correct diagnosis- green
Mucous indicates infection - I would get that checked to see where it is,
And if it is bacterial or viral.
simone717 2 years ago
i have been to 3 doctors earlier, all of them gave different opinions and none corrected the cough, even gave antibiotics injections. it seems he is catching cough from his mother, she is having same sort of cough

today, his nose is running thick and he is having mild fever
fizspace 2 years ago
If his mom is having thick mucous also?
I would add silica to the cell salt mix and use that,
For both and try kali bich 30c a couple doses for each of them 8 hours apart,
And see if there is improvement after 24 hours.
simone717 2 years ago
the mucus from nose is now clear and eyes are watery too. he is having fever since yesterday but coughing less. he is not eating anything now, which is strange as before starting cell salts, his hunger was good
fizspace 2 years ago
Did you give kali bich ?

How many sips of salts in last 24 hours?

How is the mom?
simone717 2 years ago
i didn't had kali bich, instead i gave ars alb 30 single dose 2 hours back, he is a bit better and took something to eat but his head is warm then rest of the body. i stopped salts as i find it aggravating his cold
fizspace 2 years ago
Glad he is better. I would give ars alb again if you see he is going backwards.
simone717 2 years ago
he seems fine all day, just that choking cough only few times when he cries or get angry and it never seems that he is having any sort of problem. he is fond of electrical switches and all day open and shut them.

during night, he coughs a lot and sit up and bends, he seems to be choking and not having breath. fever comes and go and mostly his head his warm
fizspace 2 years ago
He is coughing at night more because the sinus drip from back throat is dripping more when one is laying down. One has to keep swallowing
And then feels like choking. And then part of this mucous gets into the upper chest again. Try to keep him more upright with pillows, and I would try
Giving him a dose of belladonna before bed to see if that stops the drip
In the back throat.

Anuj wrote to me and suggests dulcamera.
So you could try that also.
simone717 2 years ago
as suggested by you, i visited a paedriatician today and got my son checked, he found him fine and diagnosed that he is having allergy and gave a bunch of medicines (clarithomycin, Amoxicillin and Clavulanic Acid, paracetamol, Ambroxol, Guaifenesin and Terbutaline syrup and vitamin d3). I can't give so many medicines to my child.

as suggested by you, i have given him ars alb 30 this afternoon and in evening, again he had green phlegm coming from his nose. i will try your suggestion of sleeping him a little elevated with a dose of bell

Anuj Sir is the one who helped me out in my fungal infection and i trust his advice, will get dulcamara tomorrow
fizspace 2 years ago
Amoxicillin is for the infection/ green mucous.
I advised Anuj to post on your thread instead of me.
simone717 2 years ago
never received any reply advise from Anuj Sir. gave dulcamara 30 but no improvement

i finally gave aloepathic medicines which also had one anti-allergic tablet, after 2 days, situation seems almost same.

don't know which way to go
