It is a very effective medicine to treat a number of nasal complaints. Firstly, it works wonderfully to treat complaint of cold. It is mainly given when there is discharge of thick, ropy, yellow or greenish mucus from nose. The discharge also has an offensive smell.  It is also used in cases where loss of smell and taste is present from long standing coryza. It is also well-indicated in cases where crusts are formed in the nose. The crust if detached leads to bleeding. Along with this, there is soreness and pain in the nostrils.

Next, it is a top listed medicine to treat cases of PND (post nasal drip). Post nasal drip refers to dripping of mucus from back of nostrils into the throat. Here ropy, thick mucus dripping from back of nostrils into throat is indicative to use it. The mucus is hawked up with difficulty.

Other than this it is a renowned medicine to treat sinusitis (inflammation of the membrane that lines any of the hollow areas i.e. sinuses present in the skull). Person needing it in sinusitis mainly complain of thick, ropy, yellow, greenish mucus discharge either from nose or dripping from back of nose in the throat (Post nasal drip). They also have complain of nasal stuffiness. Along with this they have violent pain in head and root of the nose.

Apart from the above, it is helpful to treat nasal polyps. These are soft, painless and non cancerous growths arising from the mucous membrane of the nose or paranasal sinuses.

They also have dryness and burning sensation in throat.  Along with this there is thick, stringy mucus in throat. It is so viscid that it can be drawn in long threads.

    Dear Doctor,
    Some 35 years ago I was suffering from severe migraine and all allopathic medicines failed to give any relief. That is when I met a Homeopathic doctor who advised me Calcaria Carb 1 M dose, followed by calacaria carb 200 for 5 days and after 1 month a booster dose of calcaria carb 200 for two days. Then he advised me to take Calacaria Carb 200, for two days every ear. This was in 1987. After 6 years I underwent Bypass Surgery and again met him to see if I can continue Calcaria carb. After reference of some books, he advised me to stop Calcaria Carb and start Kali Bichrome 200 every year 2 days to keep migraine way. And I did not suffer from Migraine. For the last two years the effect of the medicine is not lasting one year. It is lasting for less than 6 months. I am getting recurrent attacks of Migraine. Can you please advise me if I can take Kali Bich. 200 (2 Doses) two or three times a year safely? I am living in USA for the last 5 Years.
