I have noticed some of our brothers (and probably sisters) are of a view that homeopathic medicines contain alcohol so it shouldn’t be used. Let me clear the confusion:
Firstly, alcohol is prohibited as a medicinal substance; whereas homeopathic medicines contain alcohol as a preservative (not as a medicinal substance).
Secondly, Homeopathic liquid medicine contains alcohol (as a preservative, not as a medicinal substance), it is sprinkled over non-medicated dry pills, as a result of that alcohol evaporates, the medicinal content stays on the dry pills and hence these non-medicated dry pills become medicated . These dry pills are used by the patients, which are of course alcohol free.
Thirdly, there is a difference between khamr (intoxicant) and alcohol:
Our noble brother Moosaa Richardson has talked about it: http://www.bakkah.net/en/differences-between-khamr-and-alcohol.htm

I hope it clears up the confusion.
