Homeopathic acne treatments are directed at a disease that affects the oil glands under the skin. These glands produce an oily substance called sebum. This oil is exuded through minute passages (follicles) that come to the skin surface. The follicles also send up dead skin cells. During puberty in both girls and boys, a large quantity of hormones are produced which also elevate sebum production. Sebum is an irritant that clogs the pores and results in a pimple. When the pimple gets infected it forms a pustule. If the condition is severe, it can leave permanent scars that can be a source of embarrassment. Hormones do not go away after adolescence; many women still get premenstrual acne from of the release of progesterone after ovulation.
Homeopathic acne remedies offer permanent cures.
Acne is typically found on the face, neck, back and shoulders which have the largest functional oil glands. People with acne have various kinds of lesions, such as whiteheads, blackheads, papules, that are inflamed lesions which appear as small, pink bumps on the skin and can be tender to the touch; macules, that are temporary red spots left by a healed acne lesion, are flat, usually red or red-pink, with a well defined border, pustules (pimples) which are raised; reddish spots that signal inflammation or infection in the hair follicles, as well as various other types of acnes.
Conventional acne treatment relies on topical bactericidals, lotions, antibiotics and laser treatment. Homeopathic acne treatments proceed by focusing on the patient as a person, as well as the pathological condition, and selection of medicines after a full individualisation which includes medical history, physical and mental constitution, as well as, predisposition and susceptibility in case of chronic cases.
