- Digestive upset
- Teething in infants
In a nutshell:
Teething children especially if child has one red cheek. Characterised by over-sensitivity. Pains are intolerable and appear to be out of all proportion to the illness or injury. Suited to bad-tempered children who are only quiet when carried and constantly request, then reject things. They are hot and sweaty (esp the head).
Better: for being uncovered.
Worse: 9pm to midnight.

Chamomilla is an excellent children’s remedy. It is prescribed for stomach upsets, colic, diarrhoea and irritability, especially during teething (when one cheek is red).
The symptoms of such irritability may include over-sensitivity to noise, light and smell, desire to be picked up and carried, restlessness characterised by wanting things but rejecting them when offered, crying and being distressed.
For adults, Chamomilla is prescribed for irritability, tension, insomnia, stomach upsets, earaches and toothaches.
The remedy has been successfully used by women past and present to attain relief from excruciating pain, profuse sweating and fainting that accompanies menstrual and/or labor pains.
