creosotum effect

Kreosotum acts on the skin, mucous membranes, the stomach and the mind.

Creosotum in pregnancy

The homeopathic remedy is given during pregnancy for nausea and toothache. Patients wake up in the morning with a bitter taste in their mouth and persistent vomiting. It is noticeable that the vomit still contains undigested food components, even though it has been several hours since the last meal. Eating relieves both nausea and stomach pain.
When women during pregnancy complain of toothache due to carious teeth or receding gums, Kreosotum is often used.

Creosotum for the baby

Children who sleep very deeply during the first half of the night, who can hardly be awakened and who wet themselves during this period, often get creosotum.
The remedy is also given when baby’s milk teeth are already affected by caries or when the permanent teeth are decaying immediately after eruption or are already breaking out black. The teeth are generally very stressful for the children. They suffer from pain, their gums are inflamed and they often suffer from an itchy rash on their buttocks. The children are irritable and insufferable. They demand toys, only to throw them away in anger when given what they want.

Creosotum for dogs, horses and cats

Kreosotum is commonly used in animals to treat tartar and gingivitis. Gums are blue or red in color, soft, spongy, and bleed easily. The smell from the mouth of the animals is foul. Creosotum is also given for teeth that quickly decay or turn black. During the night the animals are restless.
The homeopathic remedy is also given to animals when they vomit several hours after eating and when undigested food is then thrown up.

Kreosotum side effects

There are no known side effects when taking Kreosotum. If the drug is taken too frequently or for too long, it can lead to a worsening of the condition. The intake should then be stopped immediately.
