Fitness..Please help in curing acne

Hi fitness,
I am a 22 year old female suffering from acne all over the body and face.I have been searching for a remedy for a long time with no conclusion till now.
My cousin also has the same problem and she has been consulting you and taking the remedy you prescribed.
Can you kindly help me in more or less the similar kind of case.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
A homeopath had recently prescribed me Nat Mur 30C as the constitutional remedy but i have not started taking it till now.
Will do so if you think it is suitable.

Will mail you the pictures.
Thanks a lot for helping me.
 
nehaaa 7 years ago
Please don't take any remedy now and also stop the Zinc & cod liver supplement. Observe for a week and then update your symptoms.

These things are messing up the true symptoms.
 
fitness 7 years ago
Sorry.I made a mistake while typing.
-I have stopped Zinc and cod liver capsules almost two months back.

-I stopped taking Kali Brom 30C 15 days back and i could see improvement in acne all over within 3-4 days but is am not sure if it was suppression of symptoms or a curative process had started.
 
nehaaa 7 years ago
Does Kali Brom 30C reduce the sex hormones?
I was sexually very excited and that caused some eruptions on my skin.Now after taking kali brom i feel normal and not very excited.
 
nehaaa 7 years ago
I think it might have been curative, we will know in the coming weeks.
