The aim of this paper is to show that fixed point theorem in cones can be applied to singular equations. Using the positivity of Green’s function and the external force e(t), we prove the existence of a positive periodic solution for a damped singular equation with sub-linearity, semi-linearity and super-linearity conditions, and these results are applicable to weak and strong singularities. As applications, we consider the existence of a positive periodic solution for nonlinear elasticity model and Ermakov–Pinney equation
