Sudden outburst of cystic acne

Hello Experts,

I would appreciate your feedback for my situation. I have had severe acne in the past more than 4 years ago, but not until recently when I saw a outburst of cystic acne. I saw very 4-5 very hard eruptions filled with pus and blood. In the past when I had this problem, I tried everything from antibiotics, all types of acne gels etc, but later I noticed that this happened only when I ate beetle nut(supari). It could be coincidence, but I strongly believe that was the root cause.

Now I see a new cycle, however not had any beetle nut in the recent past.

Off late,just before the flare up, I have been thinking/stressing myself a lot about some recent negative events. It has been very hard for me to forget some insults and ego issues with a relative and just have not been able to stop thinking about it and deeply and constantly feel that my ego has been hurt. I am only guessing if this has a relation to my present condition.

I have a very oily skin on the face, several brown spots from old acne and skin is pigmented in general that I would like to get rid of.

Please suggest a remedy. I like cold weathers, extremely uncomfortable in warm weathers. As stated above, cannot forget unpleasant experiences and cannot stop over thinking about it. Not that am scared/shy., can get extremely angry on certain occasions.,but very rare.

I would sincerely appreciate your feedback.

'but very angry once angry'
What do you do at that time?

Who prescribed Silicea 6X?
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Hello Dr. Nawaz,

Thanks for your follow up. Pls see my answers to your question below:

'but very angry once angry'
What do you do at that time?

If at home, I tend to shout, yell, throw things around, frustrated and stop speaking after cooling down. Usually I do not speak at all even for a couple of days after the outburst.

However, outside home, I do not shout/yell etc, but prefer to express anger by making my point clear not initiating any form of communication on my own until my anger dies down. Publicly I am thought of as a very nice and dependable person.

Who prescribed Silicea 6X?

I took Silicea 6X by reading some threads on this forum that prescribed it for Cystic acne that is hard.

Please let me know should you have more questions.

Thanks for your time!

Hi,

Please take Natrum Muriaticum 30C, 4 drops mixed in 1/4 glass of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 4 days.

Report progress after 2 days.

It would be nice to have Colocynthis 200C and Calc Phos 200C for future use.

Many prayers for your good health.

Hello Dr. Nawaz,

As requested, I wanted to update you on the progress of my situation.

On the whole after taking Nat Mur for two days, I feel more energetic, I don't believe it is coincidence, but you can clarify if it works on the general wellness.

For the last several months(7-8 months), I have been fatigued, stressed, lack of energy, when I get back home from work in the evening, I am completely worn out and there has been a nagging shooting pain in the head occasionally. Have been under some mental stress for no particular reason.

But, after taking Nat Mur, there is more energy, I have become more active, mentally also become active. There is wellness from within. I like the feeling in general. I had some head ache before starting the medicine, after my first dose in the night, the pain increased, but later from the next day onwards I do not have any headache at all.

Do you think Nat Mur is working at the inner level?. I got curious and read the Nat Mur constitution type, I think I fit the description and can associate the Nat Mur personality.

For the Cystic acne, I originally created the thread, I am not sure if I cannot assertively say if it has worked/not worked., the acne had subsided considerably before I started Nat Mur. I saw two very small tiny grain sized pimples (hardly noticeable) after I started Nat Mur.

Do you think I should continue Nat Mur. Pls suggest.

Looking forward for your reply.

Again, I cannot thank you enough for your selfless service.

Best Regards!

Great! I am very happy for you. Greatly appreciate your positive report and comments. May God Bless You.

Are there any acne issues at the moment?

So, do you have Colocynthis 200C and Calc Phos 200C with you now?

More prayers for you.

Hello Dr. Nawaz,

There are really couple of small pimples. Other than that no acne issue as such, however my skin is very oily on the face and pigmented in the last years and have a lot of brown spots from past acne. I also read nat Mur helps cure water retention, my eyelids have been swollen since a very long time (4-5 years), I was told that it could be because of water retention and allergies, tried some allopathy for allergies but did not help. I put on more weight on the face in general than anywhere else in the body.

So, should I continue Nat Mur, if so please suggest for how long.I am already into 3rd day of Nat Mur.

I do not have Coloccynthis & Calc Phos currently, but will order it. Please suggest when to start/how long and frequency.

Thanks & Best Regards!

Hello Dr. Nawaz,

As you suggested I have been on Nat Mur for 4 days(and feel great within, very grateful to you for this). Should I stop now or continue beyond 4 days for the skin issues, if so how long. At what time do I need Coloccynthis & Calc Phos.

Please suggest.

Thanks & Best Regards

Good!

I am happy for you. Please tell me about the current skin condition?
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
The current skin condition is that; my acne frare up had reduced considerably just before i started Nat Mur.,because I broke the acne eruptions with my fingers. After I started Nat Mur, I have seen 3-4 of very small eruptions not like the ones before (large and very hard pimples), but these are really small. My skin is pigmented and in general oily. I have a lot of dark brown spots from my previous acne and also the ones left by the recent acne. Allopathy doctors in the past treated my acne using antibiotics and creams, they also noticed that I have tendency for water retention in the face and eye lids. The eye lids have been puffy for many years. One doctor was of the opinion that there could be allergy causing puffy eye lids and water retention and somehow connected to occasional acne..

Please let me know should you have more questions..

Thanks!

Hi, Thanks.

Please continue with Natrum Muriaticum 30C, 4 drops mixed in 1/4 glass of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 3 more days.

Many prayers for you.
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Hello Dr. Nawaz,

Sorry I could not keep you posted on the progress. I had to travel unexpectedly so there was a break in taking Nat Mur. I continued again for 3 days as you suggested. I do not have any acne now. However the oiliness of face, pigmentation and brown spots has not improved.

More than anything, i feel more energetic/general wellness within after taking Nat Mur as I mentioned before. Should this be continued..

You also suggested Colocynthis 200C and Calc Phos 200C for future use..Please let me know if I should get these medicines.

Thanks & Best Regards!
