Question by jyotsanadang: Is homeopathy a good remedy for acne?
Hi

Iam facing a lot of acne problem. i have a lot of acne on my face ,shoulders and back. I tried allopathic but it didnt work. Iam using herbal remedies also but that will take ages to work. I am taking homeopathic medicines now. Is this a good solution. Since i have started taking homeopathic acne is spreading a lot. I heard that in homeopathy the disease first comes out full -fledged and then it goes away permanently. Is this true ? Please advise. Also pls recommend me a good body wash for acne-prone skin that i can use for future. Presently am using a neem based soap. Many thanks .

It depends on what causes your acne. You should treat what causes it first.

    My daughter used Homoeopathy treatment for her Psoriasis and yes is works, it does take a while as they have to find the right sort for your body, your acne might not go permanently but it will reduce what you have a considerable amount so that it is manageable. Always make a note yourself of what homoeopathic treatment you take and the results you get from each treatment, then you can look back and say this one had the best results.

    Acne is caused by increased hormone levels. You should talk to your doctor about possibilities for other treatments if what you are using isn’t working. Beware of using any products for acne unless they have been prescribed or recommended by your doctor. Often both topical and oral antibiotics are needed to treat acne, and sometimes topical benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid and/or retinoids.

    People make all kinds of suggestions about the best thing to do to cure acne. Some cures I’ve heard include putting oatmeal, honey, lemon juice, tea tree oil, cucumber, vinegar, milk of magnesia or toothpaste on your face. Practically every cosmetics company and company that makes personal care products makes something that is a “sure cure” for acne. If we think about this, and use some common sense, we have to come to the conclusion that there is no quick or easy cure for acne, because if there was it would be well known and doctors would be telling everyone about it.

    Numerous companies make a lot of money persuading people to buy products that at worst will make the acne worse, and at best may help some people a little. Often fewer products are better. People often make their acne much worse by using too many products. There really is no quick fix for acne. Don’t spend a lot of money on products just because their ads say that they will cure acne. Your doctor is the best person to ask for help, and he or she may recommend some prescription medication or non-prescription treatment that may be suitable for you..

    There are some very simple and basic things you can do that cost nothing. Keep your face or any other area affected by acne very clean. Any mild antibacterial soap will help with that. Rinse the area well to remove all soap residue. Drink plenty of water – it really does help to clear up acne. Eat a nutritious diet and get enough sleep. A healthy life style will make a difference. Try to reduce the stress in your life – stress contributes to acne, so also probably the more you worry about the acne and focus on it, the worse it will be.

    Probably the most useful and effective things you can do are to apply hot compresses to pustules and cysts and never to pick or squeeze pimples. Playing with or popping pimples, no matter how careful and clean you are, nearly always makes bumps stay redder and bumpier longer.

    Here are a few informative links with additional ideas about preventing and treating acne.
