♥ Tui 5 months agoThank you for your response.
The have responded well to the 1 dose of belladonna and today their temperatures are 37.5.
They look much better and have appetite too, I’m very relieved.
So I think I should stop The belladonna.
They still have a slight cough.
Should I give calc carb?
namn 5 months agoCough might stay around for a while but no, you don't have to give them anything.
You managed the case very well.
♥ Tui 5 months agoThank you!
Am giving the credit to all the posts in this forum and homeopaths like you, though. :)
I wonder if I should wait for a day or two to see if the cough is really gone, before giving another remedy?
namn 5 months agoUsually, the cough is the last thing to go and it may stay around for a week or sometimes even longer than a week, but if your children are in a good health in general, like they don't have asthma or a severe allergy, then I would just wait and see before giving them a new remedy.
