Everyone desires a lively and peppy skin. A skin that glows and looks healthy.
The sight of pesky pimples is abhorred by all especially girls.
They try everything from natural to herbal. Cosmetics to chemicals to get away with these irritating zits as soon as possible.
However, all such products are of little or no help. That is because acne isn't a superficial as many believe it to be.
Yes, there are superficial factors like dirt, sebum etc. Which may trigger it but for complete cure one needs to attack the root cause.
Homeopathy has always been handy in such cases where you wish to find a complete cure rather than temporary relief.
Being a homeopathic doctor myself, I come across acne cases quite frequently. Sadly, most of them have first been spoiled by an Allopathic cure and healing them becomes quite a daunting task because of that.
So before proceeding to the cure, I would like to mention that never ever apply any topical creams on your acne.
This can do more harm than good.
Now coming to the homeopathic medicine. They are basically prescribed on the cause of acne ( which could be an underlying disease, hormonal problem, stress etc) and symptoms related to it (which homeopaths have their own set of questions to find out) and third and most importantly the patient as a whole.
Keeping all these in mind, it is best to see a homeopath and let him treat your acne instead of doing any sort of self prescription since you may obviously not find much success in that case.
I am mentioning in some Homeopathic medicines for acne in general just to prove my point that there is quite a lot of scope in homeopathy for treatment of pimples.
If you find your symptoms similar to the medicine, consult a homeopath and tell him/her about it. So that he/she can prescribe you with proper dosage.
