I am inclined to agree with this opinion. To my knowledge, there aren't 
many parasites big enough to be felt under the skin which could be causing
the problem.

I am also of the opinion that homeopathy is nothing more than expensive
distilled water. Claims that it "treats the disease not the symptoms" and
such are clearly completely without foundation; the "diagnostic process"
that homeopathy uses is based around surpression of symptoms, not around 
a philosophy of treating the cause of said symptoms.

In short, homeopathy is a placebo only.

I agree with all other posters here; see a qualified conventional 
medic, and get an informed opinion on what, if anything, the disease is
and how it may be cured.
