Babies crying is not always for feed. In the first 3 months crying is more in some babies. It can be due to wet napkins and need for urinating. You have to give other feeds with s spoon and not bottle.

Hi lybrate-user you must be giving formula feed to the baby. If yes please stop that and give breast milk with some cereal diet like khichdi etc. The problem will be solved.

Treating whooping cough with homeopathy

Treating whooping cough with homeopathy

Cough and cold are very daunting diseases for anyone out there. Especially for people who have a tendency of catching cold easily. Nobody likes to have a runny nose, vigorous cough and fever. But all these symptoms occur when anyone suffers from cough and cold. However, the symptoms get doubled when anyone suffers with Whooping cough. Though any kind of chronic cough can be severe enough but whooping cough is the most panic striking among them all. 

What is whooping cough?

Whooping cough begins with a little respiratory illness and includes runny nose, relentless cough. In later stages a development of vivid, copious mucus with the cough and the whoop sound while coughing develops. Whooping cough can be treated safely. If we look at the homeopathic treatment, there are various remedies for whooping cough. But first and foremost, it is very important to boost your immunity. Good immunity helps you to recover faster. Next you need to add nutrition to your diet, which are very important for your health. So intake green veggies and fruits as much as you can. Talking about the homeopathy treatment, yes there are some common homeopathic medicines available, which are prescribed for whooping cough. However, it depends upon individuals and their condition as to which one would be prescribed. 

Listed are homeopathic medicines for whooping cough:

  1. Antimonium tartaricum: This medicine is prescribed if anyone suffers with scanty and prolific cough along with difficulties in chest or lung. The patient may get mucus with cough, but it hardly comes out. As a result, the patient might end up vomiting in an effort to expel the mucus. The cough can be worse in this case, and the patient might feel breathless often. This medicine is prescribed in such a condition when the chest is filled with mucus, but it barely comes out. 
  2. Drosera: This medicine is prescribed when a person experiences convulsions of coughing and ends up having cyanosis and shortness of breathing. The cough will be worse, especially at night, and the patient may end up vomiting. There is a chance of getting cramps in feet and hands while coughing.
  3. Belladona: This is a very common medicine for whooping cough, which is usually prescribed in the early feverish stages of whooping cough. If taken properly, it can be effective in terms of curing the illness. 

Mostly in the coughing stage, patients may face violent cough with red nose and bulging out of eyes, there can be abdominal pain too. Severe irritation in larynx and headache too are noticed in this period. All the above mentioned homeopathic medicines are likely to be used in treating whooping cough infection. However, it is advised to consult a homeopathic doctor before starting any treatment.

I have a baby of 2 years. He has often fever and cough. His weight not increasing.

I have a baby of 2 years. He has often fever and cough. His weight not increasing.
The baby is not gaining weight due to recurrent fever and cough which is probably also followed by a course of antibiotics. It is important to improve your child's immunity so that he does not fall sick often. Give him a high carbohydrate and high protein rich diet including cereals, Dal, milk ,butter, paneer,ghee, nuts,egg, meat.Fruits and vegetables must be included to improve vitamin levels sp. Vitamin B loss which occurs due to antibiotics. If his appetite is poor, feed him 5-7 times in a day. Make atta/soya/besan halwa or laddoos .Give him stuffed paranthas, parantha rolls stuffed with rajma/ lobhia/ soya cutlets/ paneer/ chicken. You can consult personally for detailed diet plan and homeopathic treatment for improving his general immunity.

Along with fiber and getting regular exercise, drinking enough water is the most important factor in relieving constipation. H2O is critical to help stool move easily through the colon. "The colon's main job is to reabsorb water. If you're a bit dehydrated, your stool will be harder and more difficult to pass. Soluble pectin rich foods like papaya, pineapple, banana, ripe guava, and berries like strawberry, flaxseeds, chia seeds, not only aid in proper digestion and bowel movement but also aid in improving appetite.
