i gave 2 doses one in the morning and one before bed. along with the cell salts. this morning his cough is a little more loose as it was very tight and shallow yesterday. blowing out a lot of yellow mucus from nose but very little from lungs. i gave one dose of belladonna because he said he was hot and his cheeks was red. he was very nauseated and vomited once looked a little pale afterwards. complained of a frontal headache. then i gave drosera rot for the gagging cough. i don't have ipec. he says his head feels better and he is not nauseous any more.i will give another dose of pulsatilla today.

His mental picture has improved and his chest feels better but the cough is not improving. Still sounds the same. I gave ipecac 30. He is not gagging or throwing up. Should I stick with pulsatilla and cell salts? He is not eating much but drinking. His nasal issues improved. Thanks a lot
