My six year old son was diagnosed with infection of the lympn node. It is on the right side. He has no fever. there is only swelling of the right side of the neck. I gave him Belladonna the first night. Then I started him on bar-c yesterday. but the swelling is still there. I would appreciate any suggestion on which remedy to give him.
A few swollen lymph nodes in children, especially in the neck region, need not be a cause of concern. The lymph nodes are part of our body’s defense mechanism and often become swollen after a bout of cold or another acute infection. If there is no other symptom, please wait and watch. The lymph nodes usually settle down within a few weeks. If it persists, first consult a general physician (or a medically trained homeopath) for a proper diagnosis and then go in for professional homeopathic treatment.
