Skin - very dry hands and acne on face

Hi - if anyone could please help me

My sister who is 31 years old moved to Canada and since she has gone she suffers from severe dermatitis on her hands. Doctors say its because of the change in weather.

The skin on her hands is excessively dry, itches and peels off.

She also has acne on her face. Her temperature is quite hot. And craves sweets. She has some gas issue but it is mild.

On this basis i thought of sulphur but it seemed to make her acne worse.

She is quite short tempered and very sensitive. Tends to overthink.

Can anyone please help and suggest some remedy? thank you so much

Can you tell me more about her acne?
Is it acne vulgaris(simple acne that most people have this type) or rosacea? or cystic acne ( very severe acne)?

What color is it? red, pink, white, black, yellow with pus-filled? And where on her face? forehead, cheeks jaws or everywhere?

Is it somehow related to her menses?

Is she taking or applying any kind of medications?

And about her hands, is it cracked or just dry and peeling?

Hi Tui

Thanks for getting back to me.

She developed acne after the death of her father. She’s my cousin sister.

It’s left indents on her cheeks. Back then it was intense and painful.

Now she gets the occasional spots near her chin and cheeks during the time of her period. They are smaller but sometimes pustular.

I gave her sulphur for just a couple of days but she got a very large spot so we stoppped immediately.

She only gets acne on her face. No where else.

She does have more body hair for a girl also. She’s quite slender

Her skin cracks on the tips of her fingers. And peels. It’s excessively dry. We thought it might be an allergic reaction but even after eliminating many soaps etc I don’t think it’s that. It seems hormonal to me.

And her acne is red.

Pulsatilla 30c three times a day for 3 days and use Calendula soap for washing hands and face.

1 dose is 2 pills or 2 drops and report back in 15 days.
