Chronic Acne ! Please Help

I am 27, suffering from acne for the last 10 years. Took Sulphur 30 in 2001(4 months), then am constantly on Kali Sulph 200(last 2 years). Earlier, I took it 5 times a week for about 8 months, then reduced the frequency, now take it weekly. Although the rate of eruptions has decreased, still there is recurrence. 4-5 pimples are always present. Some are soring, big while others are pus filled and small. Whole of the face (including the forehead) and the back are mostly affected. I am on constant medication since the last 7-8 years. Please Help!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
what meication yourefer to --taking past 7-8 years?

what was health status before acne started 10 years ago?

any eye/vision problems /complaints?

any other skin conditions in health history?when?how treated?

any white spots on/under fingernails?

Its me again.
1. In the last 7-8 years I have tried Calc Pic, Kali Brom, Silicea, Kali Mur, Merc Sol, Arnica Mont, but didn't continue any of the remedies for more than 5-6 months.
2. Health status was normal and I presume that it was due to adolescence. In the very early stages, there were very sore boils on the forehead between the eyebrows which cleared up in a month(no medication). Thereafter, after a gap of nearly 6 months, they re occured and spread over the whole face. I suffer from mild constipation.
3. I don't have any vision problems neither there had been any problem with the skin. The problem may be hereditary, my father had a lot of acne in his teens which cleared up in his early 30s.
4. There are semi circular white spots on the base of the thumbnails.

any moles or warts?how many?where?

how does sun affect you?
John Stanton last decade
1 month on Doxycycline in 2001 to clear acne, didn't work.
Typical diet consists of carbohydrates, cooked vegetables. Drink plenty of water.
No warts on the body.
Sun appears to aggravate the rate of eruptions. Summer and damp weather also aggravates.

Just needed to tell you that I had a lot of worms in my childhood. Also, in 2001, I took dewormin tablets and a big worm was expelled.
rikky last decade
I am surprised, no body told you to take GRAPHITes.

Take GRAPHITES 30 C four times a day until the acne begins to clear out and skin on fingers heals.

Reduce to three doses a day and then to two doses a day and so on as the healing progresses.

I dont know how to create a seperate thread within the Acne forum so please forgive me for hijacking this thread..

I am 33 male and have been sufferring from Acne for long as i can remember - 15 yrs now if i remember correctly-

1) I used to have a severe outbreak all over the face earlier but that has come down to about 2-3 a week now.
2) I dont get too many on the forehead but i do get on temples and cheeks.
3) The start small and then in about a couple of days fill up with pus and look absolutely horrible !!
4) I get same on the chest a few times( red swollen sopts )
5) The skin is slightly oily.
6) I have a 'strange' habit of feeling thirsty during the night and i typically have 2-3 glasses of water between sleep.
7) I also feel the need for passing urine at least twice times per night.
8) I dont smoke and alchohol is only about once a week . I regularly work out.

I currently use Clindamycin Topical roll-on lotion and that helps to keep the acne low A LOT !!

However, i want them to not come out at all - for heavens sake i am 33 now !I am currently using

1) Antim Crud - 3 times a day/10 min
2) Hepar Sulph 200 - 3 times a day/10 min ( alternate day to Antim Crud)
3) Kali Brom 30 - 3 times a day
4) berberis aq. tincture - 10 drops - 3 times/day

I have been using them about 4 days now .

My question - is this the right remedy combination ?How long do i need to use this before i can see any result ?
kkarank last decade
As per your instructions John, I took Nat Mur 30 on 21st Jul. On the 2nd day, the left flap of the nose became slightly red and painful to touch, however no swelling. It has gone now. On the right side, just above the moustache, a red swelling has appeared, painful to touch. Rapid pus formation was there on the existing pimples over the eyebrows on the 2nd day, granualated in next 2 days.No major change has appeared apart from this.
