Sounds familiar, my 4 yr old has had similar - pre-asthma symptoms w/some bad viruses-flus, etc. On this one, I agree with your husband as its been nearly 3 weeks. If asthmatic symptoms or breathing is involved I tend to move quicker to an allopath, if homeopathy or naturopathy, acupuncture, etc. aren't showing quick promise. If the rhus tox doesn't do it tonight, I'd hurry him to a regular doctor tomorrow. I definetly prefer the homeopathic/complimentary approach too. Sometimes though allopathy is needed. We have a family practice doc here in Boise that is very accepting that sometimes we choose alternative care for our kids. He just tells me what he can offer and says its up to me. He knows my preference for avoiding antibiotics and works with it, with me. He has even referred people on occasion to an acupuncturist, etc. I hope you have that kind of doc where you are or can find one. I believe we need allopathy sometimes, sometimes when things calm down homeopathy can come back in or to help speed healing. Last time we took my 4 yr old to our naturopathic/RN/acupuncture person (she does all 3). It did work w/her asthma. However, if it didn't that night, definetly would have gone to the allopath doc. Best wishes & please update us on your little one.
