Common Names: Chamomile; camomile.
Those needing Chamomilla (Cham.) are abnormally sensitive to ailments or pain. The pain feels unbearable and they respond with irritability and anger. Their complaints will be hostile, accusing and vehement. Anger or coffee / tea may also trigger pain. Children needing Chamomilla are hard to please and reject attempts to comfort or appease them. They cling and want to be carried, responding with anger or tantrums when put down. They may also kick, hit, or arch their back and scream angrily with earaches, teething or colic. One cheek may be red and the other pale.
