Absent minded child

My 10 year old son is very absent minded.We have to repeat and reinforce things many times but he listens one time and forgets again. He is a smart kid but he is always lost in his dreams. We have tried so many methods but its very frustrating getting him to do something and remember stuff. He knows all about the stuff he likes, has good memory and retains information. But if tell him to go and change, he will take forever and get lost in his world and you need to remind him again. He also had eczema. He does not like to take bath and we have to remind him everyday to go and take a shower. I was researching online and though he might have ADHD and Sulphur can be a good remedy for his type of kids.I am very worried as it has started interfering with his studies and other sports schedule as he is never on time. Could you please help and guide me.
Thanks

If you are in USA, you will not be able to order this remedy.
You can order from Helios homeopathic in Uk. I would get size 6
Pills in a 4 gm bottle. It will take about 10 days.
