Belladonna is a great remedy for fever. Of course, a doctor should be consulted anytime the parent feels like condition is serious enough.  One of the great things about homeopathic remedies is that they work quickly, especially for acute situations.  That is, if you have selected the correct remedy.  Belladonna should always be considered for a fever when:

~given at first stages of a fever

~there is a sudden onset of high fever

~redness on face, flushed cheeks, red lips

~the skin is so hot that it radiates, hot heads

~the fever is dry heat, w/o perspiration

~strong pulse

~temperature spikes at night, agitation, delirious, hallucinate

Other great fever remedies :aconite, ferrum phos, nux vomica, pulsatilla, sulphur

I have had great success with Belladonna in our family.  The key is to take it right at the onset of a fever, once you have had one for 2 or 3 days it works much slower.  We have not treated any fevers with tylenol since learning about Belladonna.  We purchase Belladonna 200C from ABC Homeopathy.  Also, fevers are a sign that the body is fighting an infection.  Which is a good thing.  A healthy immune system should try to fight off infections.  When there is a complication or a compromised immune system a high fever (or prolonged fever) can be a sign of danger. Homeopathy does not suppress a fever, but it helps along with the healing process.  Homeopathy helps compliment the immune system so it can do it’s job….and eventually beat the infection.
