Acne is very common in adolescents, and can persist into adulthood.
The eruptions are mainly found on the face, neck, upper chest and upper back and are caused by inflammation of the small sebaceous glands which open into hair follicles. The glands become blocked and acne develops.
Acne has been treated by homeopathy.
Acne requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy. Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
