The mother feeds him milk again and again he vomits it out. At times constipation and diarrhoea alternate.
Calcarea carbonica In this medicine also milk is vomited out in the form of curd. But difference between Aethusa and Calcarea is that Aethusa child again takes milk after vomiting whereas Calcarea child doesn’t want to take milk after vomiting.
Besides , in case of Calcarea the child gets sweat on his head and his body smells pungent, which does not happen in case of Aethusa.
