Homoeopathy is a non-drug therapy that is based on the principle of 'like cures like'. Homeopathic remedies have no side effects, are gentle enough to be used by all the family and can be used with any other forms of medication. Headaches from fasting/too much mental work may respond to Silica. In children sore, dry eyes, blocked tear ducts, deep/chronic ear infections (works deeper than Pulsatilla). Bleeding gums, toothache especially to heat or cold and abscesses under the tooth are an indicator for Silica.
