Homeopathy in the Treatment of Acne.


Homeopathy offers very safe and natural treatment for acne. Homeopathic medicines for acne work internally, in a very gentle and effective way, without any harsh external applications. Rather than suppress acne, Homeopathic medicines treat the condition at the root. These medicines, which are safe from any adverse side effects, are prescribed after a thorough in-depth analysis of symptoms.

What is acne vulgaris?

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It appears on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. The pimples and bumps heal slowly, and when one begins to go away, others seem to crop up.

The signs and symptoms are

Whiteheads – closed plugged pores,

Blackheads – open plugged pores — the oil turns brown when it is exposed to air,

Papules – small red, tender bumps,

Pustules – papules with pus at their tips

Nodules – large, solid, painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin

Cystic lesions - painful, pus-filled lumps beneath the surface of the skin
