This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The remedy I prescribe which has helped many who like you are affected by Acne is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. This remedy is also applied directly on the face as it hastens the cure. I note that you have also mentioned Rosacea and I would like to know if this diagnosis has been confirmed by a doctor.

Arnica will also help with many of your other ailments listed by you.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack aka Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
If this is not available the Dry dose in pellets may be use but this is not as effective as the remedy in the original Ethanol pack
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle or 5 Pellets and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

Please post your response to the Arnica therapy in a week.

Hi Joe,

Sorry for posting response here. I am taking arnica 6c for my nose rosacea internally. I am not applyint it to skin (should I do that as well?)

Also, since I didnt get 500ml water I mixed instead of 3 drops - 6 drops into 1000ml water(spring bottle).

Please reply and all the best to flockster.

Kind Regards,

It is essential that you apply the remedy water on your face as often as is possible since you suffer from Rosacea.

6 drops in a 1 liter bottle of spring water is OK.

You may also increase the dosage to thrice daily for best results.

Please report your progress weekly.

ckeck: thx .. i also wish you all the best. :)

joe: thank you. i will try this. regarding the rosacea. it has been confirmed by a doctor although they are also a bit confused. some say it's rosacea, some say it's seborrhoeic dermatitis and some say it's both. :/

hi Flockster,

how are you doin? how are you feeling now? Did you see any improvement?

Please let Joe and me know...

Hi Joe,

I hope it is ok if I ask a question here about Arnica.

I too have acne (severe since 3 months) and hair loss (since many years) and I am thinking about trying Arnica in the wet dose, like you suggested to many patients, Joe.

However I can get either Arnica 12C or Arnica 30C. Would this still be OK or do I need to order Arnica 6C online? Thanks for your reply and all the best to flockster and check.

Arnica 12c should be OK.
Joe De Livera last decade
hey all,

just wanted to quickly report. it's been only 3 days since starting the arnica therapy but my skin is already looking the best it has been in a long long time. it's really amazing almost unbelievable.

i'm taking the dose 2 times a day and also applying it about 3 to 5 times a day directly on the skin.

my skin is already much more smooth then before. pores are smaller. before it was oily and also at the same time dry....now it looks like its really balancing itself. also no new pimples. it's still red at the cheeks because of the rosacea but less red then before. at the moment i'm extremly happy. if this continues in the same way i will be cured soon.

joe, thank you very very much. i will report how this continues...
flockster last decade
Wow that is amazing, flockster! I am very happy for you. Please keep us informed about your progress. All the best.

To Flockster

Glad to learn that you have experienced considerable improvement in the condition of your skin in just 3 days and that it is rapidly returning to normal. This is indeed a surprise to you after suffering from Acne and Rosacea for many years but I have often received similar reports from patients in the past from 80% of the patients I have treated. Many who meet me in person sometimes embarrass me with their gratitude for their seeming miraculous cure which usually occurs within the same time frame of 3 to 4 days.

Many patients who suffer from Eczema have also reported that their oozing mess has suddenly dried up within just 2 days and within a week they were cured. They too used the same Arnica 6c in the Wet dose.

You are fortunate that you suffered from Acne and Rosacea which is a condition that can be tolerated and even if you were not treated by me you would not have suffered as much as the Eczema patients I have cured with this simple remedy which is not referred to in the classical homeopathic texts.

This is the reason why I do delight in classifying this therapy as 'Joepathy' much to the consternation of a few classical homeopaths who hound my presence on this and other homeopathic forums as their classically generated advice and remedies do not seem to work in the manner that Joepathy cures.

hi Joe, Flockster,

Flockster - you rock dude !!

Joe - You have to forgive me, I didnt follow your regime honestly and almost followed it half-heartedly. I am still on doxycycline anti-biotics as my rosacea seems to be responding to only doxycycline...

But now and then, whenever I see the spring bottle in my cupboard I gulp down on cap of it. I am not at all applying it on my nose as I seem to lazy...

Flockster, you are inspiring dude !!!

Joe - I am into this regime from now on strictly and I will post after a week....

Thanks all !!

Hi Everyone,

My red nose seems to be responding to Joe theraphy - Arnica 6c..I would like to say that although am not cured completely...I have noticed a satisfactory change on my skin in 7 days. I believe I should continue this and see if this would further improve....time will say.

The best part is....I could achieve this change without the use of antibiotics and topical lotions on my skin...

There is something in Arnica .I am still wonderin what it is, that just 3 drops of Arnica in water could bring this difference....Joe your experience is really really unquestionable.

A quick question Joe - Does Arnica Cream that is normally sold in stores....bring the same effect ?? Although I didn't use this...am asking out of curiosity.

Warm Regards,

Glad to note that my Joepathy has helped to solve your problem with Rosacea.

I do hope that my classical antagonist from Australia will please take note and also follow my lead and use my therapy which is NOT in any classical works of reference to treat his patients.

' There is something in Arnica .I am still wonderin what it is, that just 3 drops of Arnica in water could bring this difference....Joe your experience is really really unquestionable. '

This is the reason why I classify it as a MIRACLE REMEDY.


Do not even dream of using Arnica Cream as it will destroy your skin within hours.

Continue with my Joepathy for life.

Dear Joe Livera,

I have tried Arnica 6c in wet dose on my nose and cheeks which has little rosacea. I have for the first time tonight and the itching diseappered after few seconds. Can I use Arnica D6c in wet dose and put in schampoo or rinse the scalp with it or put some drops of it on the scalp to treat sebborhea?

Glad to learn that my Joepathy has helped with your Rosacea:
'I have for the first time tonight and the itching diseappered after few seconds'

I hope that the Australian homeopath who is ever ready to criticize me will read your post.

You will have to use Johnsons Baby Shampoo daily on your hair to stop the bacterial growth which is the cause of your dandruff. The chemicals used in the formula will change the ph on your scalp and ensure that the bacteria are eliminated in a week or so when the scratchiness will cease.

I shall copy below my default remedy for hair loss which will give you more information on treating your dandruff.

The following remedies will help to arrest the loss of hair and will also help to regrow the hair in about 2 months.

Arnica Q or Mother Tincture 5ml bottle
Arnica 30c in the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol
2 500ml bottles of Spring water sold in supermarkets.
Any good Fish Liver Oil in capsule form.


Pour out about 100ml of water fron each bottle.

Pour in 10 drops of Arnica Q into the water in a bottle and you should notice that the water bubbles freely when the bottle is shaken about.

Half a teaspoonful of this medicated water is to be applied on the scalp twice daily.
Please note that this water remedy with Arnica Q is NOT for oral use. It is only for massaging into the roots of the hair.

Arnica 30c for Oral use

Make the Wet dose of Arnica 30 as follows:

Order Arnica 30c in a 5ml in the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you take a capfull which is a dose twice daily. This is best taken first thing in the morning and last thing before bed.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

Take a capsule of the Fish Liver Oil daily.

Use Johnsons Baby Shampoo daily for your shower which will help to wash away the perspiration from the scalp which causes the bacteria that are responsible for your Dandruff to propogate.

Avoid Coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham and bacon, and all canned cola beverages as they antidote the therapy.

It is understood that you will STOP all other remedies and drugs you are taking today.

Drink plenty of water and exercise daily for at least 45 minutes like walking or jogging depending on your age. The idea is to sweat it out. This is essential to promote the circulation of blood in the body which Arnica will help to promote.

Patients who suffered from severe hair loss who were losing over 200 hairs daily have confirmed that they discovered in about a week that the loss of their hair had been arrested. They also noticed that the new growth was plainly visible above their scalp when their hair was parted in about 6 weeks.

Report progress in 2 weeks.

Dear simone717,

I have think I try Arnica for a while, since it also works very well for my seasonal pollen allergy.
troja last decade

Can you give me more information about your 'Seasonal pollen allergy'?
Joe De Livera last decade
Dear Joe Livera,

There are different species of trees in my country, Sweden, which flowering between May – June. If I not take any homeopathic remedies during this time I get itching, tearing, redish eyes and runny nose. Between June and August, many species of grasses produce pollen. At this time, my eyes are not affected and my nose gets infected with painful yellow stuff (not watery at all) and is very often complete blocked as well as I get nausea. I have tried during the last 20 years some homeopathic remedies such as Silicea, Urtica Urens, Hepar sulphur, Arsenicum. I have found that homeopathic nosode of the tree and grass species (although not all grasses species avaible) are very good. Hepar sulphur and Ruta grav works very well for me in acute sinus infection. However, I found that Silicea is probably the best of all, but I read in this forum that it seems not to take this remedy for long time, since I tooth fillings. I have a dog and I was allergic to dogs, but I took homeopathic nosode for dogs for about 1 year and the allergy to the dog is completely gone. I now it much more worse illnesses than allergy and sebborhea, rosacea, since my sebborhea and rosacea (incl. hairloss) started for c. 1,5 years ago. The sebborhea and rosacea gets worse when the weather turns to be dry and cold during the winter. I have also developed allergy to perfume schampoos, but this is not very important. I am now trying your advice of Arnica and it seem works well at least until now. I am only taking these homeopathic nosode of tree pollen in the morning.

The remedy you can use to overcome your 'allergies' aka Catarrh is:

Eupatorium Perfoliatum 30c in the Wet dose taken once nightly for a week and just twice weekly thereafter.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.
Joe De Livera last decade
Many thanks for your help. I have not been able to find Arnica Q or Mother Tincture, so I took Arnica 6c in water for the face and scalp. The face has become much less reddish and flushing. The scalp has been less irritaded, red, itchy and some of the scars has almost gone. And take Arnica 30c as you told me to do. I still waiting for Eupatorium Perfoliatum 30c.
