How to deal with ACNEAcne affects mostly skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back.
acne occurs most commonly during adolescence, and often continues into adulthood. In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in male sex hormones, which people of both genders accrue during puberty. For most people, acne diminishes over time and tends to disappear or at the very least decrease after one reaches one's early twenties. There is, however, no way to predict how long it will take to disappear entirely, and some individuals will carry this condition well into their thirties, forties, and beyond.
Signs and symptoms
Typical features of acne include: seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples), nodules (large papules) and, possibly scarring. It presents somewhat differently in people with dark skin.
Pigmented scars is a slightly misleading term, as it suggests a change in the skin's pigmentation and that they are true scars; however, neither is true. Pigmented scars are usually the result of nodular or cystic acne (the painful 'bumps' lying under the skin). They often leave behind an inflamed red mark. Often, the pigmentation scars can be avoided simply by avoiding aggravation of the nodule or cyst.
This is how you deal it!

Hello I am new to homepathy and would greatly appreciate help.
I am 22 year old white female. fair skin dark hair light eyes. 103 lbs
prefers cool climates, irritated by hot showers
tend to be anxious
I have had acne off and on since high school i recently tried sulphur 30c for a week and a half and cleared my acne...until i ran out acne came back. I then went and purchased sulphur 200c and have been using it for 4 days now but my skin is starting to break out more. I read that for stubborn problems to try a remedy for 2--6 weeks to cure problem
I also use retin a which makes my skin very dry.
Is the higher dosage causing a purging effect?
should i use 200c 5 pellets 3x a day for 6 weeks?
should I return to 30c?
Any and all help, people that experience similar situations or advice is welcomed and much appreciated
Thank you in advance to all posters!!
