Acne and MelasmaHi,
I am a 32 years old woman, married for a year now. I have been having bad pimples on my face - mainly on the forehead, around the mouth and cheeks. I also suffer from melasma which really gets worse on sun exposure. Many of my pimples on the cheeks are a lot like ingrowth ones, which are not really drying up and ending. They r just there on my cheeks. They just look like ugly protruding acne. I don't know if people notice, but I do when I look at myself, and it's really pulling down my confidence.
I am using Nux Vom since 2 weeks now to detox my liver and intestines.I have it 3 times a day. I don't know if it's working, cause there are some new ones which keep coming up. The old ones get dry and leave ugly, dark marks. I don't know what to do.
Please suggest a medicine for me which will cleanse my system from within.
