Acne or pimples is an inflammatory skin disease of sebaceous (oil) glands consisting of blemishes that can occur on your face, neck, chest, shoulder and back. It can be a very distressing and troublesome skin problem that teenagers and even adults face. The factors contributing to development of acne are hormonal changes, bacterial infection, certain medications and genetics.
Acne can appear as
Whiteheads: which are round white blemishes that form when hair follicles become clogged.
Blackheads: which are round, dark blemishes that form when white heads reach the skin’s surface and touch air.
Pustules: the classical pimples which are inflamed skin glands clogged with pus.
Cysts: when pimples filled with pus break penetrate deeper within the skin.
SO, WHY HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathic medicines have shown a good response in treating acne and in preventing it from recurring.
