TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
When the child has been frightened and suffocative attacks set in with bluish, bloated face, SAMBUCUS NIGRA is useful.
In the suffocating cough of children, waking them up in the middle of the night and accompanied by sibilant wheezing and great dyspnoea, but without croup, I have found small doses of SAMBUCUS Q of the most rapid service.
I have myself found SAMBUCUS NIGRA of great use in checking those debilitating perspirations, which often retard convalescence after delivery.
