Curoxen on a lip infection?

Can I use Curoxen products on a 4-year-old's inner lip infection due to a lip bite?

Curoxen is marketed as a natural and organic first aide ointment.  There is one specifically labeled as Curoxen With Vitamin D For Kids.  The active ingredients for the one marketed towards kids are Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D) 3X HPUS, Calendula 3X HPUS and Olive Extract 2X HPUS.  This, as well as the other products in the brand, are not FDA tested or approved.  You will need to check with your pediatrician regarding any use, although most likely will not be recommended.
