Sabadilla 30x or 9c is helpful for the child who experiences spasmodic sneezing with a lot of nasal discharge and a peculiar itching of the nose and soft palate. This child will want to scratch his upper palate. Exposure to flowers often increases the itching and sneezing.
If your child has had a runny nose since receiving a vaccination, give him Thaja 30x or 9c, twice a day, for two days. This is for a child who is sensitive to cold and humidity, and has a tendency to develop warts.
If none of the above remedies seems to match your child's situation, there are homeopathic combination formulas available that may be useful.
Fire Safety for Children
A child who knows basic fire safety rules is less likely to suffer needless injury. As soon as your child is old enough to understand, teach him to do the following in the event of a fire:
Shout "Fire!" to alert others.
Leave the building immediately. Do not stop to pick up anything. Do not try to put out the fire.
As you leave the building, feel each door before opening it. If a door is hot, find another way out. If there is no other way out, stay where you are and stuff clothing or a towel under the door and wait for help. Always close doors behind you as you leave.
Crouch close to the floor, or crawl if necessary. There is less smoke lower down. Cover your face with a cloth (a damp one is best) and breathe shallowly through the fabric.
As soon as you escape the building, summon help. Go to a neighbor's or dial 911 or O from a nearby telephone and ask for emergency assistance.
If your clothes catch on fire, immediately stop moving, drop to the ground, and roll over to extinguish the flames, all the while shouting "Fire!"
Practice these techniques with your child so that he will know what to do if fire should strike.
If your child suffers a serious burn, take appropriate emergency measures. Rely on medical personnel to treat the injury properly.
If your child suffers a minor burn, promptly cool the area under cool running water to minimize damage.
Give your child homeopathic Urtica urens.
Apply aloe vera to the burn.
Give your child Bach Flower Rescue Remedy.
Do not use ice water directly on a burn. Doing so can deepen and worsen the burn. Instead, use cool compresses or running water.
Never apply butter, petroleum jelly, ointment, or cream to a burn. A greasy substance will trap the heat and can cause a burn to deepen.
Do not bandage or cover the affected area tightly. A tight covering traps the heat and can cause a burn to deepen.
Do not burst any blisters. They form a natural bandage that aids healing.
