Strep ThroatMy 9 year old daughter had strep throat which turned into scarlet fever. She had a 103 fever for 8 days and began to shut down. It was an extreme case. We ended up in the ER. It was either check her into the hospital (they give her antibiotics) or give her the antibiotics at home. We waited until the last moment. I was hoping her body would fight it off. I came down with strep 2 days ago and have been managing ok. Not great...it's a very strong strain. But I know my system can get through it without the suppressing drugs. It's been tough, a lot of suffering in bed. My daughter finished her last dose of amoxicillin 2 days ago. I gave her Carc 200c yesterday, 2 doses. Last night she told me she had a soar throat. She woke up in the middle of the night with a soar throat and now the soar throat is constant. I can see her energy going down. No fever yet. She's tired and on the couch. So what do I do? I don't have the nosode of strep A. I don't know what remedy to give...I'm deciding between hepar sulph, phytolacca, belladonna and baryta carbonica. I have most potencies. The more time that goes by the more nervous I'm getting because I don't want to get back to the crisis situation we were in. I NEVER give my children antibiotics unless they would die without them. This same daughter struggled with C-Diff as a two year old and I know how bad antibiotics can be for your body. Right now we are giving her oil of oregano and gargling with different substances. I need to give her the right remedy...stop guessing. I called Boiron and they said you can give more than one remedy at a time. Should I just give her a different remedy every 30 minutes. I know that's not classical and would have never of thought to do that but at this point I'm desperate. I thought about even giving her a cocktail of different remedies. Please help...someone that really knows homeopathy and can get the right remedy...please help us.
One other thing...my daughter just said, "Mom do you remember when I was sick and I couldn't eat anything because the food stung my tongue? Well that's happening again."

PSORINUM: The homoeopathic medicine Psorinum may be indicated in sore throats which tend to be recurrent. There may be a constant pain in the throat which may radiate to the ears during an attempt to swallow. There may a constant desire to stay warm because of the extreme chilliness, so much so that there is a desire to be dressed warmly even during summers. Psorinum may be given to improve the immunity in children who suffer from recurrent upper respiratory infections. There may be a foul-smelling discharge from the throat. All the symptoms are aggravated by a cold in general and by drinking coffee, and usually get better with warmth.
SULPHUR: This is one of the best indicated medicines in cases of chronic sore throat. Sulphur may be prescribed when there is a sensation of heat in the mouth and throat. There may a sensation of swelling in the throat as if some foreign body is stuck and there is a constant attempt to clear the throat. Sulphur may be given in people with a hoarseness of voice with a constant burning in the throat. The sputum may be rusty or stained or greenish. Sulphur may be given to reduce the recurrence of throat infections.

You could give her Mercurius 200c twice a day for three days.
Bell. is a specific for Scarlet fever. While there was temp. it should have been tried.
