Acne, acne scars, eczema, weight gain

Hello, I would appreciate recommendations for help with the named problems.

I am 19 years old female and have suffered with acne since I was 9 years old. I was 11 years old when I started getting my period.

Over the years my acne has got slightly less severe, and once- over the 8 week holidays when I was working outdoors in the sun and was active- the acne cleared up.

I now have:

some blind and never come to a head
some puss filled pimples
enlarged pores on nose
an area beside my mouth which gets pimples- they go away- and always come back in same place.
sometimes very painful- especially if bumped bring tears to eyes.

acne mainly around chin area, although some on forehead and minor on chest, pimples all over upper back.

Acne worse prior to period- will always get at least one big pimple.(as well as always having small pimples)

Feels better when I am fit and excercise

I generally get a lot of sleep- 8 hours at the minimum each night. I sleep very deeply and find it hard to wake up- will sleep through a lot of noise- at times will sleep through alarm. find it easy to go back to sleep after waking. I LOVE SLEEP!

I am sensitive to other peoples actions and words towards me. I hardly cry but when I am very stressed I may cry and I will find it hard to stop. I also am sensitive about people close to me and can get very emotianally involved in other peoples problems.

I am also sensative to cold- I would rather be hot than cold

I am often negative, although like to appear positive to others. I don't like confrontations with people I don't know. I am lethargic.

I like sweet food and I love meat especially steak and beef. Also Like bread. I like plain food also without dressings/ dips etc.

I am intolerant to Milk/ dairy- makes my stools very sloppy and can also give me stomach pain.

Also intolerant to sugar (according to allergy test) but avoided it and found it didn't make much difference.

No Major diseases- I had boils as a child.

No reactions to other medicines

Was prescribed Silica for acne by homeopathic professional but no result.

Acne is my main concern but other symptoms I have are:

-acne scars
-eczema (mild- on legs)
weight gain (my weight vaires between 61kg and 75kg- I am currently 71kg and trying to loose weight)
-constipation/bowel problems had constipation as a child and problems ever since- only keep regular through using laxatives- I find Psyllium powder mixed with water effective)
-get cold easily
-lack of self control (regarding food and tidiness)
-Sometimes get sore back between shoulderblades - remidied by osteopath treatment
-sometimes low in iron
-appear sleepy
-wanting to please

I would really appreciate any help, as this has been annoying me for quite a few years. I have read other forums but realise everyone is different so would appreciate personal advise and will be willing to answer more questions so a remedy can be found..

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The remedy which has helped many for both Acne and Eczema is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily and also applied directly on the face and on your lesions as often as is possible to keep the lesions damp.

STOP all other remedies and/or drugs you may be using today

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.
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 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.

Thanks for that,

I will try the arnica suggestion- does arnica work for everyone?

In noticed on some of the other threads that others did not think arnica is ideal. Willing to give it a go but would appreciate other opinions.

If your menses are scanty, a dose of Graphites 200 may work for you. If your menses are profuse a dose of calc carb 200 may work.

Thanks for that, scanty so I would go for the Graphites, what is one dose? just one 200c pill?
VeraBethany last decade
kadwa does dose in pills as 2 pills,
( do not touch the pills) or 2 drops of
liquid in 20ml of water and sip slowly.

Follow homeopathic restrictions, such
as no coffee, strong onion, garlic
or perfumes the day of the dosing
and take it 30minutes before a meal or
brushing teeth etc.

I have been using the arnica as suggested for a week now. I still got a few pimples during that time but they went away more quickly and are smaller than usual.
VeraBethany last decade
I would also like to try the graphites, would I need to stop taking the arnica for a few day s while I take the graphites?
VeraBethany last decade
If you want too see how Graphites affects you overall, you should stop taking arnica. You may take Graphites after 3 days of stopping Arnica and you should not take Arnica for next 15 days of taking Graphites.
kadwa last decade
Ok, thanks for that, appreciate your responce. I will have to buy some graphites- so I just take 2 pills (200C) and that's it? (once I'm off the arnica)
