Pulsatilla colic displays a tender abdomen with
rumbling from the gas. The child is cold and has a pale face. Eating
ice cream, fatty foods, or fruit will trigger this type of colic. The

the remedy needed.

do not thrive. They become colicky whenever they eat, and they can
refuse to eat. They can have a delayed closing of the fontenelles as

intense and shooting.

his teeth or gums together for relief.
