Homeopathic Medicines for Sports Injuries
Aching for Homeopathic Medicine

© Dana Ullman, MPH

Ointments are made from a petroleum base which doesn't allow the skin to breath as well, but they tend to work well because they are not easily washed or wiped off. Gels and sprays allow the skin the breath more, but they are more easily washed or wiped off. Gels are my personal favorite because they are not as easily washed off.
