Eczema creams and homeopathyOur son is currently taking a homeopathic remedy for:
- Warm and sweaty head during sleep
- Common contagious colds and strep infection
I am not aware of the specific remedy name as our homeopath won't give them. He suggested us to stay away from Coffee, camphor, peppermint and cinnamon.
It helps our son to use a peppermint based cream like below link. We use a peppermint based toothpaste which has not created any issues so far.
I am wondering if we can apply a cream like this on his legs. Especially since legs are far from his sensory organs and curious to see if it would still anti-dote the remedy.

Skin ailments esp. troublesome ailments like eczema can get suppressed with strong topical chemical applications which can defeat the purpose of the treatment. Natural moisturizers like coconut oil can be used however.
The medicine that's being given internally can be applied as Mother Tincture drops, ointment, cream on eczema site.
Homeopaths or any other paths should disclose names of the medicines if patient wants to know for information. In most countries this is expected as per law. And even medical ethics demand that a patient or a patient's close relative knows what medicines are being dispensed. If they refuse they can be reported and if one is not willing to go that extent atleast try homeopaths or homeopathic doctors who can be transparent on this aspect.
