Unsettled or unhappy baby due to teething or just generally off color, or minor fevers related to teething or other minor ailments?
ABC contains that traditional children’s combination of Aconite, Belladonna and Chamomilla because sometimes it’s hard to decide which one of these remedies to use when your child is unwell.
Aconite 30c – fevers where child is hot, dry and usually thirsty. Symptoms that come on suddenly, especially in the middle of the night such as ear pain or croup, which may result from being in a cold wind or from a fright/shock. Patient may be restless and anxious. Always seek medical assistance for fever in a baby under six months old.
Belladonna 30c – acute illnesses where the child radiates heat, often with hot head and cold feet. Barking cough, hot, red, painful ears, teething with intolerance of noise and being jarred. Child may be hyper or lethargic. Usually no thirst. Symptoms often come on late afternoon.
Chamomilla 30c – most striking symptom is that the patient will be very irritable and usually won’t know what they want. Child is often better for being carried! Useful for teething and any other ailments when it fits this picture.
This is a good all purpose children’s remedy.
Current advice from The Melbourne Children’s Hospital on treating fevers is not to administer medication (paracetamol, neurofen, etc) for a fever under 38.5 degrees if the child is reasonably happy, drinking, etc. See the information under Articles.
