Dentition is a purely physiological process and should run a normal, uneventful course. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and there is no doubt that many infants are unnaturally peevish and uncomfortable and have derangements of digestion when they are teething.
The child is peevish, irritable, feverish, with swollen, irritated gums, some diarrhea and vomiting and evidently in marked pain,
Here we discuss some REMEDY RESONANCE for this particularly difficult time for the child.

Aconitum — Heat, redness, pain, swollen gums, and restlessness. Aconite, is often invaluable during dentition.

Chamomilla — This remedy may follow Aconinte, for dry cough; short breathing; and fretfulness ; flushed cheek ; loose, green or frothy stools. A sovereign remedy in many of the ailments of dentition.

Coffea — Excitability, sleeplessness, restlessness, and frequent changes. It is especially indicated in the absence of fever.

Belladonna — There is restless sleep. The child bores his head into the pillow. The head is drawn backward and he rolls it from side to side. There is pain in the ears and the child cries out in sleep. The mouth is dry ; there is vomiting and diarrhœa. The bowel movement is thin and green, and there is pain in the abdomen.

Calcarea phos — Slow or late dentition, especially in scrofulous children subject to loose bowels, with loss of flesh and strength.

Silicea — Similar symptoms to those of Calcarea especially when the teeth, though on the point of coming through, are still tardy. Silicea generally obviates the necessity of lancing the gums. Silicea is valuable in rickety children.

Mercurius., Kreosotum., Ipecac, Nux vomica, are some more remedies that can be indicated.




  1. Baby wants to be carried all the time. If the child cries without reason, or parents can’t find the cause of crying, give him chamomile. He will be better.

  2. Le sienta rebien todo eso a la nena mas su tratamiento. Besitos.

  3. I hear you Robin, as a Classical Homeopath for Animals I do agree with you, but there is occassions when you can just prescribe a certain remedy for a certain illness. People always want a direct cure, which homeopathy sometimes doesn’t provide as you have to find that one exact remedy and sometimes you are wrong, so you have to choose another one. People usually don’t have the patience for that. But these are the people who don’t believe in homeopathy that much anyways in the first place. I NEVER ever try to convince anybody.

  4. Yes, Hyland’s may not work for all. But when trying to show someone who knows nothing about homeopathy how helpful homeopathy can be, it is easier to cast a briader net and try something easy rather than complicate it. Someone who knows nothing about homeopathy is unlikely to hire a doctor.

  5. You need to see a professional Homeopath to take the case for you. The Council For Homeopathic Certification site (CHC) has a list of Certified Classical Homeopaths and is international so you should eb able to find one in your area. Good luck!

  6. Only of the symptom picture fits. I get annoyed with these commnets as they further the notion that Homeopathy is not a true medicine. Let’s remember people see these posts and it looks less credible when we say this kind of thing.

  7. Highland’s are wondrful but don’t always work for all. I prefer tohave client’s call me to help find a single remedy for babies. For instance a client’s baby was helped by Cham. 30c but after being around the baby and getting a broader picture Puls. is even better for him.

  8. My memorable cure in dentation babies , prescribe Chamomilla in alternation with an interval of 4 to 6 hours prescribe Symphytum ,for best and quick results in teething cases .

  9. I thing the most comun remedy is chamomilla…calc. is good when the teething is slow..

  10. Can you suggest any remedy for- one point burning sensation along the spine and exactly just below the neck and in between the two blades of the shoulders?

  11. Justin Whitepine, here is a list of remedies for teething but Hyland’s Teething pills would be easiest but perhaps this article gives you more info 🙂
