What do you take when you are allergic to common medicine ingredients?

    Okay, what do you do when you find out that your kid is allergic to the commonest of medicines---such as Advil, Tylenol, Motrin, Bayer, and Benadyrl.  Well, I can tell you my reaction when I got the news.  I  bit my lip and wondered what else could go wrong, allergy wise, in our family.  What I was going to do when he got his next headache, or needed a fever reducer?  Ack! 
     I am happy to say that our trusty doctor had some homeopathics that he could take!   I just keep learning new things all the time!  So, I wanted to share what we have used successfully, without reactions,  just in case anyone else out there dares to be allergic to any of the aforementioned over the counter drugs.
  • Gelsemium Sempervirens - headaches, flu like symptoms, and sore throats (Replaces Tylenol).
  • Arsenicum Album - nausea, vomitting, and dirrahea.
  • Arnica - sprains or bruises.
  • Belladonna - Sore throats, redness and swelling from an injury.  I have also used for teething, and earaches.
  • Chamomilla - for fusiness, teething, and general not feeling well (illness).
  • Nux Vomica - nausea
