I am sorry, actually I started off asking what Homeopathic remedy to give our granddaughter, age two, for a second dose of a cold, and now a hacking cough in nearly three weeks.( we have all had it) our daughter has just started again, also today for the second time. Thank you.

OKFirst of all when things recur you need to worry about secondary bacterial infection.If the belladona worked and the symptom picture has not changed, it should be repeated.If there are new symptoms, let me know what they arePlease listList what makes them bettor or worseList her emotional and mental symptoms as well

Hi, our Grandaughter is much better today, thank you, she only woke up once during the night. She seems cough free up to now, I am pleased to say. I mentioned the hair colour etc of child & parents, as my old Homeopathic Doctor took hair & eye colour as part of which tablets to prescribe, thank you for your help. Jackie
