BTW, I did opt for the antibiotics for the strep. There were a couple of reasons, mainly her level of pain but also that it had been a couple days already with symptoms. I didn't have time to research alternative remedies. I'm going to have to focus on that in the coming year. It's something I really want to learn about. I have to say, though, that ds was spared the worst of the strep since we started his treatment the same day. He's still able to eat and drink unlike dd1 for a couple days.
There are homeopathic alternatives to antibiotics for streptococcuss and staphylococcus bacterias. They are made with the bacterias itselves - called NOSODE remedies. They are GOOD to have at home in case any of you get diagnosted with an infection caused by one of these bacterias.Here
you can buy nosode kit - you pick 4 nosodes from the list, that has Staphylococcinum and Streptococcinum on it.
I did use it in past with FANTASTIC results. I'ts been years ago, when I had really bad sinus infection and went to my ORL doctor who was regular MD but was doing homeopathy as well. My infection was so bad that she really did not wanna wait for the results of the cultivation to find out what bacteria is causing it and mainly what antibiotics will kill it because I am resistent to most exsisting anitibiotics out there. So I agreed, took it and came back about 5 days later, sicker then before. The results were in and she was devastated to tell me that she gave me wrong antibiotics that the bacteria was totally resistant to. I remember it was a strep and she really did not wanna give me another yet different stronger antibiotics so she said she'd give me homeopathic nosode made with strep. NEXT DAY I felt FANTASTIC. week later I came back to see her and she was amazed how well it worked.
Elsanne ~ glad you got the remedy, I hope it will help.
I think DS2 has RSV
He has been very congested for past week or so and I myself have a horrible sinus infection so I bought some remedy yesterday for both of us because I thought he had sinus as well. Gave it to both of us, I felt better immediatelly, and I am still improoving, but he has now really loose mucus in his lungs. When he starts laughing he starts coughing and then he's struggeling to take a breath because of all the mucus coming out. He's not feeling good at all. No fever though. The mucus however is really thin - at least it sounds like it.
So I went on-line and read about RSV and I think that's what he's got. He also had a blood in his poop last time I changed him. I think it's all the mucous he is swollowing and coughing up. I know few babies here has RSV latelly - can you tell me more about it?
