RATTLING IN CHEST-KALI SULPH.
Kali-sulph.-There is no remedy so competent for rattling in the chest when that state has followed an acute attack of inflammation. When a child has passed through broncho-pneumonia and seems to have recovered and after every change in the weather to cold the child coughs and rattles in the chest, then it is that this remedy cures.
RATTLING COUGH-KALI SULPH.
A boy four years old was brought to my office for treatment. He looked well, but coughed several times with a rattling cough. “He never expectorates,” says the father, “but he always has that rattling. It is worse in cold weather. He eats well and seems well, but always has more or less rattling.”
Kali sulph. 200, one dose, dry, cured the case. In one week the rattling that had been there all winter was gone; the weather changes do not affect him now.
DOUBLE PNEUMONIA-KALI SULPH.
A little girl baby fourteen months old had a very violent double pneumonia last winter. Having been called to the case rather late, it was with great difficulty that the baby was saved. But, finally, it convalesced and looked well. During the cold spring weather it rattled in the chest and coughed. Otherwise it was healthy and plump. Some two months after the acute attack it was rattling when the weather changed to cold or damp.
Kali sulph. 200, cured immediately.
I prescribe Kali sulph. 200 for rattling in the chest, with or without much cough, in the absence of distinct indication for other remedies-in sub-acute or chronic cases.
