Drosera is primarily a cough remedy that will ease bouts of dry, barking coughs that come on the very moment your child's head hits the pillow. The coughs come in spasms and can be so violent that they end in retching or vomiting. If your child is old enough to express it, they might tell you that the cough feels tickly, or that the bouts of coughing make them feel like they're choking. The worst time for kids needing Drosera is often from midnight into the small hours, but the cough can also come on as soon as they lie down, too. Drosera is also the number one remedy for whooping cough. For more information about how homeopathy can help your child, please feel free to get in touch.
