Adult Acne

I have adult acne for about 12 years. I am 28 (male) and still suffering from acne but not as much when I was on my teens. About 4 to 10 active pimples at a given time

Pimples are small to medium in size and do not come to a head. Pimples takes a long time to heal. Acne on the cheeks in symmetry with right or left cheek. Acne around the earlobe. Acne on the chest.

Acne tend to grow on the same place or near the area where the previous acne has healed.

Oily Skin and large pores; easily sweats even with little change in temperature; sweat has no odor

Food Cravings: Obese and craves eggs and ice cream, sweets or sometimes chocolate and salty potato/corn chips. Likes cold water and cold baths.

Skin Care: Acne Soap and witch hazel toner and sunflower oil as moisturizer; regular bentonite clay mask

Family History - My mother has acne even up to adult hood. I was diagnosed before with rheumatic heart when I was 11/12 but was healed after 2 years with antibiotics and medicine.

Mental Constitution: Happy go lucky; disorganized with my things in my room and workplace; a little shy/reserved but can talk in front of many people; has an idea but tends to keep quite; can easily adapt to change; have a lot of what if's or mental/sexual fantasies; have a lot of spiritual questions on my role and mission in this world; a high drive to make a positive difference and change in this universe

I have tried calcerea sulphorica for 1 week and I thinked it worked out fine for me as it healed acne around my earlobes; currently taking antimonium tartaricum

Daily Supplement: Chromium Picolinate GTF and Chelated Zinc from albion laboratories

I hope someone knowledgeable can chime in. I do not have access to a homeopathic doctor in the area.

Hi- Stop taking any other remedies. What potency of Antimonium are you taking
and how many doses have you taken already?

Depending on that answer, wait for 5 days and then start Phosphorus 30c.

Take 3 pills or 2 drops in a quarter cup of water. Take one teaspoon out of that
as a dose.

Start, with one dose in the evening, one the next morning and one the next evening.

Then report on that after 5 days.

Btw- the liver is the organ that rules the skin in Chinese medicine. Bc you are obese
and stools are yellow, it means the liver is burdened. Ice cream, salty chips etc
have to be eliminated and a gradual new diet/exercise routine put into place
to help here.

There are cell salts to help with all of this, but I want to see what the phos effect
is first.

Best,

Simone717

I am taking antimonioum tartaricum 30c, 3 pellets morning and evening, I have been taking them for about 10 days.

Thanks for the taking time to answer my problem. I will look for Phosphorus 30c. Homeopathic medicine is a little bit hard to find here in the Philippines. I will check my local health store. :)

Hi Simone,

It is now my fifth day.

On the first day, I felt a little weak but was able to work the whole day. I actually needed less sleep. Even If I sleep for 4 hours only, I was well rested and woke up early in the morning.

Well, my cravings for ice cream and potato chips is so much less. I also got under control my sexual urges. I feel more will power and in control.

My bowel movement is twice a day. But I have regular bowel movements even before I took phosphorus 30c.

My acne, not much to report. I still have 4 active acne. Though my body acne calmed down significantly and started healing. My oily skin is still oily but more in control.

What do I do now?

Thanks.

Hi-this is a good result.

The last dose of Phos 30 was on the 16th-correct?

So now you wait and let it keep working and see how
long the action is.

When you start to feel worse again, then you take another
dose and see how long that works for.

The dosing has to be fine tuned depending on your reactions,
and the dosing will change . As you improve you need less.
If you take too much you will temporarily bring back
things.

Try to stay with the good food choices. Have good lean
protein with each meal. The protein is a slow steady
energy and the body simply will not want the other stuff bc
the body has energy from the protein.

Report again in 4 days.

Best,

Simone717

Hi!

I repeated the dosage yesterday because I think my pimples are fighting back lol.

I will update in the next four days. Over-all feeling is my muscles seems to ache but I am mentally not tired. It is just general feeling like like some energy structures are being moved inside my body, or maybe just imagining things. Same feeling when I have taken it the first time.

All is good. I have taken an online test to check what is my constitutional remedy and surprise surprise phosphorus it is.

I guess I should be more patient when the effects on my pimples will show.

Hi-

The acne has been a chronic issue for 12 years, and yes it won't
just disappear in a couple weeks. You may have to do a dose once
a week for a time, however you always take the dose when
you feel you are going in reverse so that you do not overdose.

I want you to make up the dosing bottle a different way.

Get a dropper bottle and put in 3 pills. Have a mix of 5 parts water
to one part alcohol. That way it will keep. The next time you need
a dose, take that bottle and hit it hard against your hand or a book,
6 times. Then take out a couple drops and put them into a
quarter cup of water. Take a tsp. out for one dose. Throw the rest
away.

This changes the potency slightly and you will use the dropper bottle
from now on.


Thanks,

Simone717

Bowel movement is also regular 2x a day - morning and evening.

I forgot to add, I also bought Boiron calendula ointment and also assisted in calming redness.

Also sleep is normal.

Skin oiliness is more or less the same.

That is very good. Now that you are
more balanced, maybe you can start
to work on your diet- bc what you eat
has a big effect on the skin.

You probably know what to do there-
google how many grams of protein a
day you need for what should be your
height and weight. Make sure you get
that amount in good, lean protein bc it
keeps the sugar levels balanced and reduces cravings.

Then eat good healthy variety of foods,
with minimum oil and salt and
exercise doing anything as a start-
even if it is for 5 minutes.

Plan your food calories for the day
with the protein and have less than
the amount you burn-this will help
the oily skin.
