Acne and Depression - Help!

24-year-old have had acne since 10 years old, if not earlier. My first pimples were around age of 7 years old. Most likely genetic because my father and my mother's father both had recurring acne.
Currently I have deep acne on both temples and along my cheeks . Also on my jaw and underneeth my jaw. Currently about five to six pimples. They are often near eachother and hurt and itch. Also I've had it on my back and chest all my life. Acne that has gone away leaves reddish and blueish scars.

Also, I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety and have been taking paxil 20mg for five years. I've had crying, sense of tiredness, take several naps durign the day.

I have been on Accutane for one six month cycle and my skin had cleared but acne came back again. I'm considering a second cycle, but would rather try homeopathy. Please help.

You can check if you are not suffering from CANDIDA.
(yeast overgrowth)
check it.

Do you recommend any way of checking for Candida overgrowth? Have you used it and has it helped you?

I'd be suspicious of candida too, especially if you have acne on your scalp, it's really easy to clear up, and if that's not the problem, then you have to look at your diet, and your cleansing habits.

Acne can be genetic, of course, but it is really aggravated by clogged pores, so the trick is to keep those pores clear and clean, at all times.

This cured my acne, as well as my daughters, which had gotten so bad that we tried several medications from the doctor. They offered a bit of relief, but not completly. I searched around and found a really good way to control acne.

benzol peroxide 2.5% on a cotton pad, applied 3 times a day to a freshly washed face. Use nice hot water as well, as this helps loosen the plugged glands. A little unscented lotion on the spots that dry out, we used neutrogena lotion and ivory soap.

If you need to squeeze, be careful. Only after a hot shower, and with very clean hands. wash hands between pimples, as you can spread bacteria from one to another. Then a compress of peroxide on the inflamed tissue.

Keep your hair washed daily, pillows and bedding changed often, and keep your hands off the pimples. don't touch them unless your hands are sterile, and the pimple or black head is 'ready'. If it bleeds, keep pressure on it. If you sweat a lot, wash your face after exersize for example..

Look at your diet. Avoid high fat, rich foods, and dairy products, as well as snacks that don't offer much nutrition, and drink lots and lots of water. Avoid alcohol, coffee and smoke. Get atleast 30 minutes of sunlight on your face every day, or go to the tanning salon for 5 minutes, 3 times a week. Stay away from make-up, atleast while you have a bad outbreak, and make sure your make-up is fresh. Old stuff can add to the madness, laden in bacteria and rancid oils.

And, ofcourse, take a good multivitamin, with iron daily.

good luck

for reseding gums, massaging works wonders in just two days. If massaging with just your finger and the vitamin oil does not do the trick for you, try a finger dog brush. It makes instant miracles to bring your gums back to normal again.

Thanks Betty! I will try your remedy. The hardest part is not to pick the acne and not weaaring make-up because without it my skin looks very patchy. I heard of natural makeup on another post in this forum. I was wondering if that is safer to use on acne prone skin.

I'd have to say that nothing is really safe on acne prone skin. Your main concern is to keep your skin free and clear of all oils, waxes and dyes. Just use a tiny bit of moisturizer on dry patches, applied with a q-tip.

You'll find that an organic pressed powder, used alone with a very light unscented moisturizer, a little mascara and some lip gloss might be all you need. MAC products seem quite hypoallergenic too. A little pricey, but very light.

My daughter noticed that the peroxide reduced most the redness, so she was very pleased not to have to use foundation. The redness is a sign of inflamation and infection, so treat that accordingly and with care.

let us know how this works for you.
