Along with homeopathic remedies, remember to Use the Neti Pot to Clear Sinus and Nasal Congestion
These are the most common homeopathic remedies to treat a simple head cold:
Allium Cepa: The most common remedy for a simple head cold. The eyes and nose run. There is burning discharge from the nose, making the upper lip red and sore. This person feels better in the open air.
Euphrasia: Nonirritating discharge from the nose with burning tears. There may also be a cough that is worse in the daytime.
Arsenicum: Like allium cepa, the nasal discharge burns and reddens the skin. These people are very chilly and restless.
Nux Vomica: This person is very chilly and irritable. The nose is stuffy at night and runny during the day.
Dulcamara: This person gets a cold after exposure to cold damp weather. These colds are more common in autumn when the seasons change from warm to cool.
Natrum Muriaticum: Nasal flow with mucus that looks like raw egg whites. There may be blisters around the mouth or nose.
Kali Bichromicum: Usually at the later stages of a cold, when the mucus is thick, yellow, ropey and difficult to expel.
Dosage and Repetition: Give a 12C or 30C potency (strength) of the indicated remedy every one or two hours, depending on the severity of symptoms. If a few doses of a remedy has brought no relief, try a different remedy.
