    I would go to a higher potency of Baryta carb if he did well on it.

      Thanx Ricky ,Baryta Carb sounds good ,I was on a diff track ,child also likes to eat salty things which I may not have mentioned in the earlier post and some other similarities with the Nat Mur type. Meanwhile I will wait to see if anybody has any other ideas. If this wouuld help he is very artisitic and is highly imaginative.

        Been given Baryta Carb 200 as it had app helped him initially,sleep pattern is better,slightly more alert than before but is still absent minded and the wart on his left knee has gotten bigger and is white now ....he is having the medicine in water I would be grateful if somebody would give me a litle advice on this one
        Some more details are .....He was born 3 days late after the mother was induced ,she had severe nausea thru the first four months of pregnancy and had taken some homeopathic medicines for nausea and vomitting ,Ipecac 30 and later on Sepia 30C. Had a severe throat infection during the 4th month and was given a course of antibiotics. She then had a reasonably comfortable time till the last month when she had
        swelling of the feet and foetal distress towards the last few days ,was under supervision about 3days prior to the due date and had a late delivery ,but a normal one ,about 12 hrs .
        Child is the first born and the mother tends to be a little tough on him on and off ,expectations
        were high and so he has grown up with a critical mum. Relationship with mother is very close .Looks up to her for everything.

        These are some more details I have managed to get
        could someone shed some light...

          What do you mean by -he is being given the medicine in water? One dose of the 200 should have been all he was given!!

            Ricky sorry I've not been able to post a reply earlier ,regarding the dosage ,it was three to four pills dissolved in water and given to the child after shaking the solution over a period of 3-4 days (Baryta Carb 200) right now the child is not being given anything ,was that the wrong way?? The mother says he has become even more forgetful,can u pl suggest something,I will be grateful...Ariana

              Just thought that I would mention that after the initial aggravation and no medication the child seems much more alert and is beginning to show signs of improvement (recollecting/confidence)However the wart on his knee still seems to exist!Would it be wise to give Thuja 30C for the wart???

                Things sound as if they are going the way they should. Don't worry about the wart on the knee. It's hardly life threatening!! If you want tell Mum to put Thuja tincture on the wart a couple of times a day as that should get shot of it but it will still take a few weeks.
