Need help with Cystic Acne

I am 28 female, With cystic acne on my cheeks and little on my chin. I stopped using retin-a and going to the Dermy because she just wasn't helping me. I've starting using AVC morning and night along with Green tea cleanser and that's it. They have really made my skin feel smoother and better but I still have breakouts that are very red, painful and leave ugly scarring even if I dont touch them. I don't know what else to do because I'm afraid whatever I do will make it worse. They last a rally long time and never come to a head. I have purchased a Jessner Peel but haven't tried it yet. I'm considering taking Graphites? Any thoughts? Any one out there have any suggestions for me? This is oh so depressing to be my age and look this way. Any advice on peels and or home or OTC remedies?

I have also been drinking green tea regularly, and take fiber and probiotics but alas nothing, I'm desperate. Nothing seems to work!

Thanks for the information.
Plz answer the following.

1) How is your overall skin looks? i.e. is it dirty looking?
2) Any flare up of acne, just before the start of menstruation?
3) Is the acne red and fiery looking?
4) Is the acne puss filled and painful to touch?
5) Any dandruff problem?

Please get hold of following medicines in liquid dilution:

1) Nux Vomica 200.
Take two doses of Nux Vomica in a day. First dose should be taken early morning empty stomach, second dose before going to bed. This is for one day only.

One dose means.
The medicine is in liquid dilution form. Add 3 drops of medicine in some half cup (Approx. 3 sip) water and stir with spoon. Sip up the content.

Make sure you keep all medicines away from direct sunlight, strong smell, strong heat zone (keep it in a dark cool place away from allopathic medicines). Also make sure the dropper is fitted with the bottle, else use separate dropper for different medicine for making doses, this will avoid unnecessary contamination.

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 and brushing of teeth one hour before or one hour after taking the medicine. These restrictions need to be followed each time you take homeopathy medicines during the treatment.

2) Echinacea Q (Mother Tincture).

Before going to bed do the following:
One hour before applying the medicine, wash your face with face wash and normal cold water (do not use soap). Pat dry. After one hour take a cotton ball put some drops of Echinacea Q (Mother Tincture) gently apply the medicine on the acne. Once applied leave it over night. Do this application daily before going to bed.

>Go slow on oily, greasy and dairy products.
>Drink abundant of water
>Try to keep your self cheerful away from stress.
>Don’t pinch the acne or keep touching the acne.
>Avoid heavy makeups.
>Avoid any junk food or drinks.

Important : While moving ahead with the treatment please dont take any acne suppresing allopathic medicine or apply local applcation this will hinder the treatment process.


Please do update.

Blessings & Prayers,
Nikkie.

1) How is your overall skin looks? i.e. is it dirty looking? Dark/scar spots, active acne on right cheek. Medium to large pores.
2) Any flare up of acne, just before the start of menstruation? I would say yes but only by the addition of 1 or 2 blemishes to the already existing acne?
3) Is the acne red and fiery looking? yes
4) Is the acne puss filled and painful to touch? some are def. painful to the touch, and they don't pop so I don't know what's in them.
5) Any dandruff problem? yes a little.

Thank you for your help. May I continue to take my other homeopathy during your rec. treatment?

What other medicine you are taking and for what ?

Nikkie.
 
Nikkie 9 years ago
Probiotics, fiber and burdock root to help with digestion and BM. I also started calc. sulph. for the acne before I posted on the forum.

P.S. I emailed you some pictures of my face so you can see how it looks.

Thank you!
 
magg88 9 years ago
Don’t take Calc sulph. Nux Vomica should take care of your Digestion and Bowl movement. Hope you had started applying Echinacea as said in my previous post.

Get hold of the following medicines in liquid dilution:
1) Thuja 30.
2) Chelidonium Q (mother tincture).
3) Carduus Marianus Q (mother tincture).

Once you finish with Nux Vomica dose you will start with the following.

Day 1 to day 3) Thuja 30.
Take three doses of Thuja 30 in a day. First dose should be taken early morning empty stomach, second dose in the afternoon and final dose before going to bed. Continue for three days.

One dose means.
The medicine is in liquid dilution form. Add 3 drops of medicine in some half cup (Approx. 3 sip) water and stir with spoon. Sip up the content.

Day 4 to Day10) Take one dose Chelidonium Q early morning at 6:00 am and one dose of Carduus Marianus Q 6:00 Pm.

One dose means.
The medicine is in liquid dilution form. Add 8 drops of medicine in some half cup (Approx. 3 sip) water and stir with spoon. Sip up the content.

Make sure you keep all medicines away from direct sunlight, strong smell, strong heat zone (keep it in a dark cool place away from allopathic medicines). Also make sure the dropper is fitted with the bottle, else use separate dropper for different medicine for making doses, this will avoid unnecessary contamination.

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 and brushing of teeth one hour before or one hour after taking the medicine. These restrictions need to be followed each time you take homeopathy medicines during the treatment.

Keep me updated.

Blessings & Prayers,
Nikkie.

Nikkie,

I can't find echinacea Q!! I can find regular echinacea and ech. Goldenseal but no Q. What do I do? Do I have any suggestions?
 
magg88 9 years ago
Mother tincture is required. Go ahead with thuja.

Nikkie.
 
Nikkie 9 years ago
I got the Echinacea in liquid but the nux vomica and thuja etc. aren't in liquid. Is that okay?
 
magg88 9 years ago
If the remedy is in pellet form, be careful you do not touch the pellets else medicine that is sprayed on them could be easily rubbed off. To make a dose from pellets add 3 pellets of remedy in half cup of water (wait for some time the pellets will dissolve, you can use spoon for dissolving it). This becomes your dose which you can sip it. You can use remedy bottle cap to transfer pellets from bottle to water cup, this will avoid direct contact of your hands with medicine. Also, if during this process of dose making if pellets slips down from the bottle, you can just discard those pellets and avoid putting it back in remedy bottle.

Nikkie..Okay, started on that, thank you. The bottle says to dissolve 5 pellets in my mouth. Do you still want me to put 3 pellets into water and drink it? I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right.

Thanks again for your time!
