A homeopathic remedy for teething in children. It soothes the child who is restless, irritable, feverish and clingy.
This remedy is also useful in adults with dental pain and toothache.
Useful in childhood fevers too, it allows the body to use a fever as a healing tool.
One dose is 3-5 pillules sucked under the tongue in a clean mouth, this applies to adults, children and animals alike.
In acute conditions, dose every half hour for 3 doses then every hour for 3 doses.
Thereafter dose 2 – 4 hourly as required for 3-5 days.
Until an infant can suck the pillules safely without risk of choking (around 10-12 months old), crush 3-5 pillules between 2 plastic medicine measures then add a small amount of water and spoon directly into the child’s mouth.
As soon as the child can suck the pillules safely, dose normally.
Alternatively if you’re dosing frequently, another method may be useful.
Dissolve 10 pillules in half a glass of boiled and cooled water and spoon one medicine measure into the infant’s mouth for each dose.
Discard the water after 12 hours.
Should a high fever not subside within 12 hours, seek professional medical attention.
Swab the patient with a damp cloth, or even submerge in cool water. Rehydrate with fluids. Use a fan to cool them down.
