Two homeopathic medicines that I have found are very useful in treating cough variant asthma are Drosera and Coccus cacti. Drosera stands at the top of the  table for treating this recurrent cough episodes ;the main symptoms for its use are cough that aggravates at night and is also aggravated in the morning. Coccus Cacti is useful when the child vomits every time a spasm of cough comes on. I have used both the medicines with great success in treating many cases of cough variant asthma. Although there are other medicnes like Antim Tart and Ipecac ; but for my patients  Drosera and Coccus cacti have worked wonders.

    Hi Doctor,
    I have a 8 years old boy who has been diagnosed with cough variant asthma (dry cough at night) since he was three years old. Doctor had recommended him to use Asthalin and becklate inhaler and used about almost two years duration but there was side effect like excess saliva coming out of mouth and as such we stopped using inhaler despite Doctor said to continue to use for years ahead. After stopping it has been three years since the asthma didnt attack him but now it started again. Please suggest the treatment without side effect…

    Hello Dr Sharma,
    I wonder if you could help. I had a history of asthma, albeit mlld and intermittent until 2 years ago when
    I was prescribed Ramapril and since then have a severe cough which has kept me awake virtually every night since. CVA was eventually diagnosed, but i am doubtful. Each medication i have had has caused worse coughing. I have used the blue ventolin when necessary and gave up the brown one when the cough did not subside. I was then given Seretide which has caused severe coughing and gave that up last weekend.
    My GP (in London) has now given me a Turbohaler 200 200/6 inhalation pwder, and this looks good, my
    cough has subsided a little. I am, however unhappy about taking constant drugs and especially steroids, and therefore wonder inf you could recommend anything. I am 70 years young and normally very healthy.
    I would be grateful for any help you may be able to offer
    thanking you in advance
    Jennifer Cook (Mrs)

  9. I have a daughter with CVA and you are very right. Drosera has been the most successful remedy with her.

    Dear sir, Is cough variant asthma curable? Is it dangerous or what problems arise if remains untreated? Does it requres taking inhaler? or simply homeopathy medication can cure it. Would appreciate if you explain alternatives in details.
