The acne vulgaris is perhaps one of the most dreaded problems many people face. The main cause behind the fear is obviously the degree of “loss of confidence” this problem causes in the population than the actual lesion. But with aptly chosen homeopathic remedies, we can halt the progress of the disease and put an end to the menace by rendering soft supple skin to the ‘beauty-conscious’ generation. Causative factors of Acne- Excess oil secretion from the sebaceous glands is considered to be the ...

Spotted skin, scars and acne marks make you feel embarrassed and hurt self-esteem as well. Many of us opt for cosmetics and other products to get rid of acne residues. There are many home remedies which have proven their effects on lightening these skin marks. Tomato and Lemon Juice: Take a “fresh tomato” and make its paste. Mix it well with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply the paste on face for around 20 minutes and rinse it off gently with water after 20 minutes. Pulp of Aloe Vera: Let the pulp from Aloe Vera dry for 5 minutes in sun. Add 6-8 drops of lemon juice to it and apply on the affected area and face for 15 minutes. Onions: Cut the onion into small pieces. Grind those pieces and separate the juice from the residue. Apply the juice for few minutes on the affected skin and rinse after 10 minutes. Cucumber and Milk: Make a paste out of cucumber, milk and a bit of lime extract. It will serve as a face mask. Apply thoroughly and wash it with warm water after 10 minutes. You must consider a visit to dermatologist in severity of the condition. But, these home remedies are proven effective in getting rid of acne marks, black spots, pimples and dark spots.

Dear Dr. Shreya, I just finished reading your blog about your homeopathic remedies for acne. I am always looking for some healthy way to clean up my acne, and you seem like you know a lot about it. I am 22 years old, with oily skin. I have pimples on my forehead, mildly on cheeks, constantly and severe on chin and neck, and pretty severe on my back, my nose is clean with no blackheads or pimples. I have tried everything that i could think of from washing face 3 times a day with salicylic acid soap, using saltwater twice a day, tea tree oil 3 times a day, etc. nothing gets rid of it completely. I know that my problem has some part to do with my parents and the genes they gave me, because my dad went through his stage a acne around my age and my mother had it about the same. I do not scar really at all, which is a good thing, but I don't know how to get rid of the acne completely. I'm hoping you could help me. It would mean the world.Sincerely, Austin Perez

Hello Maam,I am a 26 years old boy. My skin type is oily. I have problem of acne especially severe in winters. They develops under the skin, cysts are formed, and leaves red scars the generally takes months to fade. I feel very bad and losing confidence to interact with people.9 monthsago I had taken Allopathic treatment and the doc prescribed me isotretinoin. It worked wonders and cleaned up all pimples and scars in 3 months. but it had side affects . I started losing my hairs and thining . SO i have discontinued it 5 months ago and now my face has become prone to acne again and getting 1-2 pimples weekly...I dont know what to do, I dont want to go back to allopathic treatment as it had severe side effects. Also, My father had the acne problem too.

@ Anjum669, when we treat acne, it is necessary that the whole constitution of the patient is taken into consideration; that is why the treatment differs from person to person. Acne aid may be working in a few but may not work in all due to its generalized nature. It's better you seek one to one homeopathic consultation than resort to some generalized medication. Thanks.

Dear Chandan22, you can definitely be benefited by homeopathic treatment. One thing is important to understand that mere external application can never help you have lasting relief. So, go for internal therapy. If you know a good homeopath around you, you can directly contact him or her; else, you can write to us at contact@drshreya.com and we will help you overcome this trouble. Thanks.

Hello Dr.Shreya i am facing this problem since 12 years of age and it was like white needles on my shoulders. But after some years, when I grew up this disease aggravated and spread on my chest, back and buttocks. Now it is in pimple form with pus and redness around. Typically I never faced this problem on my face. Now I am 30 years old and the whole affected area looks like a blotchy mango and every pore of skin seems a potential pimple. What is the homeopathic treatment.

Dear Gayathri, Exactly that's what happens. Homeopathic medicines act on individual basis and lot of study has to be done in any case to decide the right remedy for that case. You can mail me your details and I will be more than happy to help you cure your acne. Thanks.

hello Dr. Shreya,I am 24 yr old and i am suffering from acne since two years. I used to get one or two pimples once or twice a month during my puberty but it was quite ignorable. but in the past two years it has become so severe especially during winters i would feel pain even while washing my face. the pimples leave dark pigmentation and few scars which take a very long time to fade. My skin is a combination skin having a T-zone. I usually get pimples on my cheeks and at the time of my menstrual cycle all my face is affected (fore head, sides of the nose, chin and ofcourse cheeks). The pimples end up with eruptions oozing pus. I tried a lot of creams and ointments which seem to be of no use. My brother has acne but after reading your med blog he has taken* Asterias rubens and his acne is drastically been cured. I took the same pills but it dint help me. If you can kindly suggest me with a medicine it would be of great help to me. Thanks in advance. waiting for your reply,Gayathri
