Acne is a skin condition that becomes visible during the teenage years and may continue in adulthood. Find out how you can get the right acne homeopathic remedy to treat different types of acne.

Key Takeaways

  • Globally, about 650 million people suffering from various types of acne
  • Homeopathic remedies for acne have been able to reduce acne symptoms
  • Get acne homeopathic treatment with ease on Bajaj Finserv Health

Getting the right acne homeopathic remedy can be an effective way to finally see clear skin, not just on your face but on your body too. Before we get into acne homeopathy medicines, it is important to learn about the condition itself. Acne is a skin disease that usually becomes visible once we enter our teenage years.

Acne can affect your face, back, and chest. Some common types of acne are blackheads or comedones, pimples or acne vulgaris, red skin or seborrhea, pinheads or papules, nodules, and more. These are all descriptions of various acne symptoms you can observe and are treated in slightly different ways.

Acne is caused by a high level of reproductive hormones like androgens or testosterone. It basically involves a disorder of the hair follicles blocking the sweat glands, which causes pimples. It is no surprise that it is a common sign among adolescents occurring in 28.9% to 93.3% of both teenage boys and girls.

Post teenage years may also continue during adulthood. Globally, about 650 million individuals suffer from this condition. In fact, the WHO has reported acne vulgaris, or chronic acne, as one of the most prevalent skin diseases, with a prevalence of 9.4% [1].

While acne is not something toxic and may go away automatically, it still causes pain and irritation and may lead to infection if you scratch or tear the affected area by accident. It may also lead to embarrassment and confidence issues. Research has shown that an acne homeopathic remedy can be a prudent way to address this issue. Here’s more on this.

In a particular study, individualized homeopathic remedies for acne were given to 83 patients [2]. Among them, most had previously undergone conventional treatment for acne, but this didn’t show sufficient results. During the study, researchers prescribed each patient a single acne homeopathy medicine. As a whole, this acne homeopathic remedy study involved 17 different homeopathic medicines.

Acne Homeopathic Remedy

This acne homeopathic treatment was followed up every 6 to 8 weeks by each patient. The types of acne being treated were classified into the following groups: 

  • Mild: If it was comedonal acne with no presence of papules or pustules 
  • Moderate: If it was marked by lesions, both inflammatory and not 
  • Severe: If it was marked by lesions that are primarily inflammatory, such as nodules, cysts, and pustules

The study’s results reflected that the treatment worked for at least 68 patients, which shows an 81.9% success rate. The number of lesions in these patients reduced significantly after following the prescribed acne homeopathic remedy. This study helps establish that homeopathic remedies for acne can reduce the symptoms to a large extent. Now take a look at the common medicines used as acne homeopathic remedies.

Dispelling Five Misconceptions About Acne 

Besides going for an acne homeopathic remedy, it is also important for you to know the facts about acne rather than believe misconceptions. Take a look at some erroneous beliefs about acne.  

  • Misconception 1: Acne only happens to teenagers 

Though acne becomes visible during the teenage, it may also continue during adulthood.

  • Misconception 2: it is important to wash your skin repeatedly to tackle acne  

Though it is recommended to take extra care of your skin, especially your hands, during the pandemic, over-washing your whole body can further worsen the condition of acne. During summer, having a bath twice a day is enough to cleanse your skin.

  • Misconception 3: Chocolates are responsible for acne 

Remember that it is not the chocolate but the dairy and sugar products used in it that can lead to hormonal changes that may cause acne to form.

  • Misconception 4: You can heal acne by pressing on or squeezing the pimples 

Never try to do this as it can worsen the condition further. Talk to a homeopath for easy acne homeopathic remedy to take care of the condition.

  • Misconception 5: Sunscreen boosts acne symptoms 

It is important to choose the right sunscreen to keep acne at bay. You can go for a product that is non-comedogenic and oil free. You can also choose a sunscreen based on your skin type for best results.
