Difference between Merc Sol & Merc Viv?


Is there one? From what I've found on the internet, they seem to be the same. For teething especially?

Hi Sajjad,

Thanks for your reply - could you pls give me an idea as to the mental charac of merc? I am trying to find out whether my 5 month son fits the personality - the greatest reason being he salivates excessively and is painfully teething with restless sleep and irritability. Lycopodium has helped him somewhat but I'm beginning to wonder whether it was simply palliative in its cure as he has not completely improved.

Thanks for your help

Merc. is reactive to temp change. Very emotional, sensitive, irritable, shy,(adult like emotions)-precocious. I suppose very bad breath may help confirm you choice in merc.

Thank you all for your replies.

My son has very sour breath (rather than bad) and saliva - his clothes smell like vinegar from the drool it's that sour.

He is quite emotional and sensitive, very restless generally not only at night.

Thanks for the rep - i wonder if there is a rubric for disturbed sleep during dentition because my son wants to sleep and cries loudly when he is forced to wake, he falls back to sleep very quickly only to awaken again in discomfort.

Interesting though that Coffea came up. Is that a common remedy for dentition?

Thanks for your help
