Severe case of Acne

I desperately need help with my acne problem that i have had for over 10 years now. I am 24 right now, slim and tall, over 6 ft. I eat normal but can tolerate hunger for long. I like spicy food. Water consumption would be between less and normal. I have been a bit depressed for the past two years or so, was an idealist before, so i like to keep myself busy inorder to avoid thinking about stuff. Havent suffered from any major disease except jointis long back, dont know if it qualifies as major disease. I prefer winters over summer. I am usually quiet and cool, but i dont like being bossed around. I dont think i have self esteem issues since i feel at ease when in public. I think dry, dust filled atmosphere effects the acne. Rarely have any dreams. Sweat would be normal if not less.

My maternal uncle had severe acnes and from my fathers side, i inherit hair loss. The acnes I get appear as puss filled pockets rooted deep within skin, so they dont pop quick, take a long time to ripe and burst open. sometimes they dont pop at all. Before I used to have them on face, shoulders and upper arms. On arms they were less severe and smaller. After trying several different antibiotic treatments, they lessened a bit for a couple of months, totally disappeared from arms but for the past year or two, they have become much severe and they are recurring. Now i have them on face, specially the bearded areas of face and neck and shoulder. Them appearing in bearded areas is accompanied by hairfall in that area so hairless patches are appearing which is what worries me the most. I also noticed that they sort of appear symmetrical, like if one appeared on left cheek, another would appear on right in approximately the same zone. They have also left some pigment scars and pits.

My aunt had a problem with acne and she took gun powder for it which fixed it. I need to know what medicine should i go for. From what i have read, gun powder, echinacea q and vitamin b5 seem to help?

joe...i got schwabes Arnica 6, 10ml dilution in 90% alcohol...how much of it should i pour into the bottle. Also would mineral water do or does it have to be spring water which i think would be hard to find where i am.

jewishhomeopath...i composed my post after referring to your questionnaire in one of the other threads so have covered most...a few things i missed: i sleep well and my stool is normal, no specific posture of sleeping but usually its on the side...no fears as such, loosing my family, thats it i guess and rarely have any dream...while reading, 'sometimes' i do repeat stuff to myself aloud while i absorb and understand whats being said...dont like consolations...heat and contact, specially with pillow or bed i feel aggravate my condition.

I note that you wish to be treated by more than one Homeopath.

This form of doubling the therapy prescribed can result in more problems for the patient and I would prefer that you are treated by the other Homeopath who has also taken your case.

i guess you missed the 'desperately' bit in my initial post...i would like to be treated by whoever promptly responds...i got arnica 6 10ml dilution with 90% alcohol, how much of it would i need to pour into the water bottle and if mineral water would do?

Please read the instructions I have given in the link I referred you to in a previous post and follow the therapy precisely as prescribed.

You can use boiled tap water. Boiling is necessary to release the chlorine.

Mineral water is not OK as it has various chemicals which will antidote the Arnica.
