Homeopathic remedy temporarily relieves croup and barking cough in babies and children

A helping hand for a cough

Young children (6 months to 3 years) often find themselves afflicted with a rather hoarse-sounding cough and a chesty noise when inhaling, also known as croup or a barking cough. Many times a child may seem fine when going to bed – only to wake up later in the night with this type of cough and trouble breathing.

A child who is not breathing freely often becomes agitated and flustered – which often makes matters worse. Young infants and small children have much smaller airways than adults, and so any inflammation, swelling or irritation caused by a build up of mucus can cause the trachea and bronchial tubes to become blocked.

Smaller children suffering with this bronchial obstruction will usually also have a hoarse voice, decreased appetite and a fever, which is usually low grade, but worth keeping an eye on.

Although they may have trouble breathing, children with spasmodic coughing often don’t have a fever, and get better quickly after several hours. Be sure to watch your child’s color – if he or she has a high fever, appears sallow or seems overly lethargic, it is wise to seek further medical advice.

The natural way

There are many natural ways to help open blocked and congested chests to improve easy breathing. Children in particular become very agitated and restless when their breathing is hindered. Since symptoms worsen if your child is crying and agitated, trying to keep your child calm should also improve symptoms.

A cool aromatic mist may be used in the room and it is a good idea to encourage the expulsion of any mucus through therapeutic techniques such as back rubs and massage. Increasing the moisture in the air in the room using a vaporizer may be helpful, but the vaporizer must be used safely and kept out of reach of children.

What is CroupEx Sprinkles?

CroupEx Sprinkles is a safe, non-addictive FDA registered natural remedy, containing 100% homeopathic ingredients especially selected to temporarily relieve chest congestion and barking cough in babies and children.

Soothing a child with croup is difficult. Children often become irritable, clingy, and won’t eat or sleep when they have croup cough. CroupEx Sprinkles helps to decrease short-term irritability and discomfort.

This remedy should be taken at the first signs of a barking or hoarse cough associated with croup to address the symptoms. CroupEx Sprinkles provides temporary relief by decreasing inflammation and encouraging open airways.

CroupEx Sprinkles is taken internally and works quickly to increase the body’s ability to expel mucus. Presented in tiny sweet-tasting sprinkles, CroupEx Sprinkles dissolves on the tongue, is easy to ingest and hassle-free (even for small babies) with no artificial colors or preservatives.

“It was a scary experience for me to have my four-year-old daughter wander through to my room in the middle of the night, coughing and wheezing like a steam train. She sounded so clogged and her cough was brassy. My husband and I didn’t know what to do, and we took her into the bathroom and ran the hot tap till the room steamed up. We sat with her for 20 minutes, till she seemed a lot better. The next day, first thing – I got online and found you guys. We had another episode two nights later –I used these sprinkles, and what a difference! I can’t tell you the relief I felt to see her settling, and I think the idea of the sprinkles also calmed her down! Thank you.”

* Aconite (30C) has been used safely for many years to address sudden, frightful events with psychological implications, as well as nasal or chest congestion, hoarse, dry persistent cough, and restless sleep.

* Hepar. sulph. (6C) is suited to children who seem pale, sluggish, and tend to look as if they could gratefully sink into the nearest chair, tired and weary. It is a good choice when presented with a crowing cough with loose, rattling phlegm in the chest to promote expulsion of mucous. Children who may benefit from this remedy will usually suffer with an exhausting cough that tends to worsen or arise between 6 p.m. and midnight.

* Kali. mur (D6) this effective remedy and biochemic tissue salt is best suited for Bronchial afflictions and coughing (acute, spasmodic, harsh and barking). Children who may benefit from this ingredient may experience a wheeze that rattles, or the rattling sound of air passing through thick, tenacious mucus in the bronchi that is difficult to cough up. Dr. Schuessler, who first formulated the 12 biochemic tissue salts, often recommended Kali mur. as a deep-acting remedy useful to prepare the way for other indicated natural remedies.

* Mag. phos. (D6) works foremost as a relaxant and antispasmodic. It is a great supporter for the relief of nervousness or anxiety, (which often makes breathing more difficult) with a sudden and unexpected onset. This remedy suits afflictions that are spasmodic in character. The child suited to this remedy may appear languid, tired, exhausted, and unable to sit up.
* Rumex crispus (6C) is a welcome choice to address a cough which then runs down to the bifurcation of the bronchial tubes. The cough will tend to become worse from temperature changes – hot into cold air or vice versa. This is also a good choice to help diminish the secretions of mucus membranes and at the same time encourage the expulsion of mucus from the larynx and trachea.

CroupEx Sprinkles is a homeopathic remedy registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

How do I use CroupEx Sprinkles?

DIRECTIONS

Safe for all ages, including during infancy.

CAUTION

Please consult your doctor if symptoms worsen or persist, or if a child has severe difficulty breathing with extreme lethargy. Also, avoid strong mint-flavored candy, as this may reduce effectiveness of the remedy.

How long until I see results?

How long will a bottle last?
