Streptococcus A, Sore Throat and Scarlet Fever
Homeopathic remedies for Streptococcus A, Sore Throat and Scarlet Fever

I’m so very sad to read of the children that have recently passed away from Streptococcus A infection and I understand that many parents are naturally very worried.  I have listed below some homeopathic remedies that can help should you or your little one develop a sore throat, scarlet fever or impetigo.

If you have attended or have purchased my on-line course you will be familiar with most of the remedies and will know how well they can work especially in acute situations.  I know many of you have been using your remedies with great success.

If you have used homeopathy please do spread the word because taking anti-biotics as a prophylactic “just in case” isn’t the answer and will not do any one’s immune system any favours in the long run.

I have listed below remedies that will help you.  As always please always seek medical help if you are worried or concerned.

Ailanthus –  This remedy is for chronic cases. Throat will feel dry and scrapey worse in the morning.  Coughing up mucus.  Cough may sound croup. Cold perspiration. Tongue coated white brown in the centre. Vomiting, dizziness and vertigo.

Apis – this remedy is for inflammation and swellings.  The throat will feel swollen with burning pains.  Worse for heat, touch and right side.  Better for cold applications, fresh air and drinks.

Belladonna – Sudden onset, high temperature with burning and intense heat, red discolourations. Eyes will be dilated with glassy appearance.  Delirium with fever.  Worse for light, jarring, noise and touch.  Sore throat.

Lachesis – Sore throat usually worse left side with difficulty swallowing liquids or even saliva.  Feels like lump in throat which will induce swallowing.  Worse on waking or during sleep.  Pain can extend to the ear.  Sensitive to touch and can’t stand anything tight around them (pressure).  Worse for heat better for fresh air.

Lycopodium – sore throat usually starts on the right side but can move to left.  Worse from 4-8pm.  Better evening and open air.  Sore throat better for warm drinks.

Merc – Sore throat with swelling of glands.  Desires cold drinks.  May have offensive odor and bad breath.  Worse heat of bed, perspiration, night time.  Will feel better for lying down.

Nit-Ac – throat will feel like it has splinters and swallowing will be difficult.  May extend to the ears.  Will feel chilly and worse for cold.  Worse at night time.  May also have ulcers in the mouth.

There are many other remedies that can also help but the ones I have listed are the most common and you will find most of them in your 36 and 42 remedy kits.  Remember you are an individual and everyone’s symptoms are different so match the remedy to your symptoms.

How to take the remedies
In acute cases with high fevers I usually suggest taking the remedies in 200c potency but if you only have 30c that will also be perfectly okay.  Most of the above remedies will be in your remedy kits but you can also order the remedies at all good homeopathic pharmacies such as Helios or Ainsworth.

I offer acute appointments to my existing clients and if you would like to work with me please contact me or book an appointment.
