13-year old with chronically enlarged tonsils

I have a 13-year old girl whose tonsils have been enlarged for several years. First just one then the second one last year when she was diagnosed with strep and took strong antibiotics (1st time in her life) as one of them was developing an abscess and a few homeopathic remedies that were tried did not bring any result. She lost her voice this past year, and causticum 30 brought it back quickly. Her throat is feeling sore right now and gets that way at night sometimes but better during the day, and every morning she likes to blow hard on her nose as it gets stuffy (this is usual for her). No redness but the tonsils are large and have pockets and there are a couple lines in them that look like yellowish mucous (this is usually how they look). Any thoughts on a remedy that could reduce the size? One doctor is recommending removal if the size does not reduce. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Hmm .. Nat.phos 6x or 3x .. 2 pills three times a day for one week only. Avoid milk, sugar, pastry and that kind of heavy things ++ sour thing. Update click my name after 5-7 days.

Also as regards the low potencies not having
Much effect due to antibiotics, etc- I find that
Not to be true-and some illnesses respond
Better to repeated low potencies.

I will follow you Reva V., thanks. Also, please consider the case of a 10-year old girl - she came home and vomited twice 2 days ago then slept the night and next day - started feeling better and had eaten a little rice and kept it down - ate a grapefruit in the evening then back to bed and woke up and vomited it up around midnight all over her bed. Went back to sleep and woke up coughing but little more energy. She said her stomach hurts when she coughs. She's been picking the skin off of her lips (she does this sometimes and says she's "bored" and can't stop herself). She's extremely sensitive to remedies which often make her worse and bring out the streak of anger in her personality where she reacts to everything (including attempts to help) as if it's a personal attack (but shows it only at home where she can get aggressive with mother and sister and call names and threaten injury).

For your 13 year old, please give Merc Sol 30, one dose (2 pills) in the morning, every 3rd day (2 days interval between doses). Continue this for a few weeks and report once a week.

Give her vegetables that grows well in winter only (like carrots), and avoid vegetables that are brought from outside state, where the weather conditions are different. (Any vegetables that grow well only on summer must be completely avoided)

To clarify, when it is summer, you should give vegetables that grows well on summer only

For your 10 year old, since she is sensitive to medicines, give her Cumin seed (1 tea spoon to 2 cup of water) in boiled water and give her when it is warm. Repeat and this should take care of her to most part. Report later in the day.

Thanks - please let me know regarding the 10 year old. she is still very lethargic and her body feels sore.

Thanks for the cumin suggestion. I would love to address her constitutionally as well to address lip picking and other unhealthy habits. Please let me know if that's possible and what further info can I give.

Merc Cor would be a better choice in place of Merc Sol. It could be alternated with Hep S.

Just an update that 10 year old's lips are bleeding due to picking. Would Arum T be a good remedy? And if so, what potency? Other aspects of personality are shy at school and not great at taking risks - lots of anxiety when having to perform (becomes mean with family in those situations). Trouble with R sound. It takes a couple days to order that remedy where I am. Thank you.

For the ten year old, first focus on Getting well with her stomach. Constitutional ones later

Apply Vaseline or calendula if you have external on her lips.

Merc Sol is commonly available from Whole Foods, Vittamineshop and other natural grocers.
