my 2 yearl is spiking a fever of about 102, normally i would let it go for a bit longer but she is crying and carrying on so i am treating it

my DD has taken a few homeopathy remedies this week for her chest cold but they seem to have made her worse so we stopped them all together, she alos takes homeopathy sulfu for her constipatin she has been on this for a weeks or so but still no poop.

My QUESTION is can you mix homeopathy therapies with western medicine.
I am kinda on the fence I was raised on westertn medicine but for some things I am against it ( vax and antibitoics (if not really needed) please give me some feedback. I am very upset, not sure what to do.
thanks

When in doubt, call and ask a pharmacist. They know what drugs interact with what. Most homeopathic treatments would not interfere with Motrin or such as they only have trace amounts of medicinal herbs, etc. in them but I would just ask a pharmacist for my own peace of mind. Good luck mama.
