Cystic acne covering back

Hi, My 17 year old son has terrible cystic acne covering his back and the back of his neck. He's had it for years and we've tried everything except for roaccutain which he didn't want to try. We've tried some chinese herbal remedies with minor success, but he's going into the navy soon and is SO shy about letting anyone see his back. Any suggestions?? I read the post by a lady with chronic cystic acne, but wasn't sure if it would be the same as he's male and only 17 and it's on his back. Diet doesn't seem to have any effects. He was slightly anaemic a few years ago, feels the cold - lips go blue, won't eat fruit.

hello,

Do you feel they are worse in any particular season of the year?
Any itching sensation in those acne?
Do they get filled with pus?

Do the acne leave scars?
Any acne on the face, shoulders too?
Are they worse on intake of any particular food?

How is his appetite, thirst, urination, bowel movement, perspiraiton, sleep etc.?

Any past history of significant illness and treatment?

Any family history of similar complaint?

Thanks Dr Venugopal. The answers in order are:
No particular season, no itching; yes to the pus; don't know cos he doesn't scratch them; no pain really unless he tries to squeeze them; yes they leave scars; used to have it on his face but that cleared up ages ago and it's just been on his back and the back of his neck for about 2-3 years, slightly worse with junk foods but not hugely. His appetite is usually VERY good; no unusual thirst; normal urine and bowel movements; perspires a bit when he's asleep although he sometimes has a problem getting to sleep and staying asleep. As far as we know, no family history.

HEPAR SULPH 30C three times a day for five days along with ECHINACEA Q, twenty drops in a cup of water at bedtime continued for a fortnight should be of help to him.
Do post the progress.
Initially the existing acne should subside and over a period of time with medication, the recurrence should come down.

For a good prescription mental detail is must be and try to email of photographs of the diseases part.(if required) I am a very affectionate person, I love touch, and if someone is hurting I want to touch them and comfort them. I have anger that comes and goes. I am most angry when someone says something against my family members, or takes away my right to live as i please. I am deeply emotional, and become overwhelmed when i cannot change my curcumstances. I want to be home with my children, but I am forced to work because my husband cannot find a job, and we need to pay the bills. My husband did not force me, but we had no other options. I tend to take on the hurts of other people, and have deep compassion for others. I am an artist and a musician, and it is one of my deepest passions to sing. God is my strength, and without him I would have no hope.
21. Aggravation & Amelioration-I become aggravated especially around my menses, and sometimes to the point of a mental breakdown where my body feels like it is throwing up.

I have the same symptoms.
Deep acne along my spine.
Stress seems to make it worse.
The acne does have much in it. Clear fluid. But it hurts and itches.
Anything to help this??
