The essence of Belladonna is –

The eyes can be a real give-away for Belladonna. Eyes are usually dilated, and shiny – particularly when fever is high. Face may be red too.

Administering Belladonna

For Potency – 30c will suffice, 200c often has a quicker reaction. If no 200c, you will more than likely have to repeat the 30c more often. This is ok to do, just be aware of that.

For very high fever, give remedy every couple of minutes until fever subsides.

For Ear Infections or Tonsillitis, give every 30 mins until a positive change is seen, then give less often.
