Homeopathy has proven effective in the treatment of acne

by | 23 Jan 2021

Acne, pimples, zits… Whatever you call them. Nobody likes to have them.

Acne results from a blockage and infection in the oil-producing sebaceous glands of the skin. The severity of acne depends on your family history. If one of your parents had severe acne, you have a higher chance of developing the condition.

One of the major aggravating factors of acne is hormonal changes associated with puberty – the transition from childhood to adult life. The hormones cause the oil in the glands to become thicker and infected, and acne develops.

There is no permanent cure for acne in conventional medicine but it can be controlled by antibiotics and other anti-acne drugs.

Homeopathy is often effective for acne. Homeopaths may recommend discontinuing conventional medicines before beginning homeopathic treatment of acne, wherever it is safe to do so since these drugs can be suppressive.

Specific homeopathic remedies for acne include Lycopodium, especially for those self-conscious about their spots. Pulsatilla aids in skin clearance and Graphites is good for skin eruptions with pus.
