When her age was 8 months only, her all body was loose. Can not raise her head, motion is very low. But she can move all the parts of body. CT Scan Report was taken at the age of 8 months. Report Showed "External Hydrocephalus". But there was no "Epilepsy". Homeo treatment was started. Physical therapy was started with heat therapy. One day, when her age was 2.5 years, her mother brought her to give hir "Ceragem Heat Therapy". After 1 hour of Giving "Ceragem Heat Therapy" huge foams come from her mouth, then convulsion was started. Now it is not stopping. Please be helpful to save her life.

Details should be always given with complaints. Cause and other significant details about the patient.

Don't you have a near by homeopath who can see the child and prescribe?

Why do you think you stopped Ignatia and Nux v after they showed positive results? Were they aggravating?

This seems a complicated case with scant differentiating details. While you can wait for what Priyanka sharma has to say, I'd let you know my tentative remedy choice for what you have described. It may be tried and if there is improvement ---it can be persisted with. It would be Causticum in 30c. Initial dosage may be once or twice a week.

Thank you so much. Can I continue Nux vom 30 for long time? As after giving nux vom30 (only) epolepsy was gone and she slept a fresh sleep and she seemed very good.
A local homeopath told me to not to repeat nux vom for a longtime. So I became afraid and stopped it.

If she did well on Nux 30 and felt good generally then continuing it is not a problem--- in fact that would be desirable. Just watch out if the medicine stops working or aggravates or gives new symptoms. In that case either a new potency or a new medicine has to be employed.

In her condition sometimes a medicine will have to be continued for some time beyond general restrictions. But it depends if it keeps the generals of the child in good shape. Like you mentioned it affected epilepsy positively, then she slept well other general may be--- appetite, thirst and energy levels.

Did your local homeopath said why he was discouraging nux v 30?(except not to continue it for long term?)

Any ways give her remedy for two weeks on a stretch, then leave a week or two then resume N Vom 30 again if you are going to resume Nux v. 30.

Alternatively you could give sulph. 30 after 2 weeks of N vom for four consecutive days then leave one to two weeks gap before resuming N. vom 30. N. Vom works well when it is given a hour before going to bed. Sulph. needs to be given early in the morning.

What relation are you to this child?

My only daughter. I forget everything seeing my daughter's smile. But when her condition becomes worse, my whole life seems torn. Her age is 7 years. But can not hold her head, can not sit, can not stand, can not talk. She tries to say papa, mama,and tries to play with child. But can not. When her epilesy comes, my heart breaks into pieces.

Is not there any remedy to cure external hydrocephalus? as epilepsy is for that and her all symphtoms is for External hydrocephalus.
jannat.lackey 3 months ago
There are some remedies for hydrocephalus. Taking it into account I suggested Caust. But when you said Nux did good work, I had suggested Sulph. in addition to Nux. They both(Sulph. and Nux) work well in tandem. Sulph. also can work for hydrocephalus. Nux is not that much indicated for hydrocephalus.

It's early to predict if it can be cured in your child's case but definitely an attempt must be made---actually external one is more benign than the internal one---many times external hydrocephalus resolves on it's own by 2 years but it has not happened here on the contrary, it has become complicated. Treatment should have been done from the time of birth because you said at birth she had some critical situation and she did not cry.

Take Apis Mel -30/5pills thrice a day...
& Apocynum -3X/ 2tab with lukewarm water thrice a day...if 3X is not available then take the mother tincture of apocynum ,20 drops with normal water thrice a day

You have got three recommendations one from me, one from priyanka and the third from Anuj. I have given 2 advices. One about Causti., another is Nuxv+Sulph ---not to be followed at the same time.

I think Anuj in his latest post agrees to Apis.

You will have to choose one and follow one advice and one prescriber at a time.

If you choose to follow mine, keep me posted so that I can review in future. No problem if you follow other advice.
