DO the following every day before going to bed:
Wash you face with good face wash (do not use soap). Pat dry. Take a cotton ball put some drops of Echinacea Q (Mother Tincture) gently apply the medicine on the acne.

Few more questions:

1)How is your scalp condition. ie. do you loose hair, do you have dandruff etc.
2) Are there any scrs on your face?
3) When playing cricket what drink you take ? ie: simple water, glucose, aeriated drinks etc.

talwar1288 last decade
small correction i have constipation not fisher it was a typo error..

also i am taking a wet dose of arnica montana 30
 
talwar1288 last decade
Dear Deepak Talwar,

Thanks for the information. For time being please stop with Arnica wet dose.

Please get hold of following medicine in liquid dilution:
1) Nux. Vomica 200.

>> Take one dose of Nux Vomica before going to bed in the night. Repeat for three nights(days).

One dose means
The medicine is in liquid dilution form. Add 3-4 drops of medicine in some 20 ml (Approx. 2 sip) water then mix slowly with spoon. Sip up the content slowly.

Please follow homeopathy restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, and no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 45 minutes before or after taking medicine.


Since how long are you suffering from Under eye dark circles?

Lay down on your back (best position to balance the scraped cucumber slices). Was and grate one cucumber. Close your eyes; now place the grated cucumber on your eyes, making sure they have contact with the skin under the eyes. Leave them on for 10-15 minutes. Be careful not to get cucumber juice in your eyes. Wash you eyes with cold water (do not use any face wash) Do this before going to bed. (Make it a Habit) When you get up in the morning wash your eyes with clean and chilled cold water.

Food Restriction/suggestions for speedy recovery:

1) Your water intake should be around 3 ltrs per day (min).
2) Avoid Junk -spicy-oily stuff.
3) Restrict your self from dairy saturated fats.(butter,cheese etc etc.)
4) Please Take the following in the morning empty stomache.
Please boil 4 cups / 2 glasses of water to this add fresh mashed ginger let it boil for some time, Filter the liquid ( It is boiled water which has contents
of ginger) to this add fresh lemon juice and honey as per your taste.
Benifits :
- It will detoxify your body if taken first thing in the morning.
- Your immuine system will improve drasticaly.

Update me on daily bases.

Regards,
Nikkie.

talwar1288 last decade
Dear Talwar,

Enjoy your Vegetarian Diet, no more food restriction as of now. Nux Vomica will be taken before going to bed. One dose in a day for three days.

It is ok with cucumber thearpy. You can take one more tip here, wet a towel in ice cold water to which little salt is added ( remove excess water, taking care water should not move inside your eyes) place it on your eyes for 10 minute. Wash your eyes with cold water and pat dry. Gently massage (for 3-4 minute)the area under your eyes by taking few drops of almond oil.Use your middle fingure for applying almond oil. Then go to bed. Use good sun glasses when moving outside your home.

Suggested medcine will take care of your problem !! Need to see your daily update.

Regards,
Nikkie.
 
Nikkie last decade
Dear Nikkie,

talwar1288 last decade
Dear Talwar,

As we proceed with the treatment we will tackle the scar issue. Explain me about your face hair growth.
1) How often do you shave? Is it necessary for you to shave daily?
2) Are there any pimples-acne inside the shaving area of your face?
3) How many scars are there on your face? What is there visibility that is making you feel bad?
To lessen the chance of scarring, we will try to reduce-cure inflammatory breakouts as much as possible. Pass up the temptation to pick or squeeze a pimple. Doing so can force debris deeper into the dermis, spreading infection to other tissue and worsening inflammation. Picking at scabs should also be avoided. A scab is the skin's natural 'bandage' which protects the wound as it heals. Picking a scab off a wound before it is ready prolongs the healing process and increases chances of scarring. Hope in future you will always remember this. You will not apply anything other then what was discussed in the previous posts.

Regards,
Nikkie.

Dear Nikkie,

apology for not able to share daily report with you as mentioned earlier had to go on unplanned trip which is 18750 above sea level hence no internet there ......below is the detailed report on the acne situation as of now:

* have ensured that i had taken the prescribed dosage also have been taking ginger / honey / lemon water empty stomach early morning daily....feel that the ingestion has improved ...will continue with this

* but no visible change on acne....please suggest should i continue with Echinacea Q
* infarct 2-3 big ones have popped out .....please suggest any remedy for the same.

* have taken Nux. Vomica 200 dosage for 3 days as suggested ....it did help me to sleep well....have stop the usage now of the same.

Below are the clarification required:

) How often do you shave? Is it necessary for you to shave daily?

* Yes i shave daily & my work culture is such that i have to shave daily.

2) Are there any pimples-acne inside the shaving area of your face?

* yes there are many pimple - acne inside the shaving area ..

3) How many scars are there on your face? What is there visibility that is making you feel bad?

* around 15-20 scars are there on my face .....there visibility is very prominent on the skin because i have a fair skin tone so any scars on the face are very clearly visible & they look really bad ...

will ensure that i do not pick or squeeze pimple...

thanks for the clarification...
 
talwar1288 last decade
Dear Talwar,

Please continue with Nux. Vomica for three more days. Echinaceq Q can be used externaly (on pimples) as and when it pops up.

Let me know the life cycle of say one pimple. How fast it appears on the skin and for how long it remains on the skin. Is it that it pops up overnight an takes couple of days to go off ?

1)Do you take Milk or curd or lassi ? every day.
2)Do you have any stress ? Please elaborate if any.

Regards,
Nikkie.

talwar1288 last decade
Dear Deepak,

You need to stop nox vomica now. Wait for three days.
Please get the medicine Hepar sul. 30 in liquid dilution.

>>As you are using echinacea
For external application on Pimples, did you see any benifit from the medicine ?

>>Since you are shaving you face every day, are you using after shave lotion ?
It is a good idea using Echinacea instead of strong chemical loaded after shave lotion. This will help healing of minor cuts-burns and controls spreading of pimples to other area !

If you apply (say) medicine at 10:00 pm. you can just wash your face with water and gently tap dry it and finaly apply medicine with cotton and leave it overnight. If any use of face wash use it 2 hrs before.

Food Precautions:
1) Always take milk after sunset (late evening or night, taking precaution that no sour or salty food be consumed in 2 hrs radius). Instead of white sugar go with Natural Honey.
2) Curd-butter milk only in Morning or Afternoon (Never during night). Instead of table salt make use Black salt (and corriander & cummin powder).
3) Avoid all sought of junk drinks.
4) Avoid taking water with your meal(butter milk can be taken). Small sip of water is ok. Take water 1 hr before or after having your meal.

Thats all this time !

Regards,
Nikkie.
