Hi doctor,

I currently suffer from a deep painful cystic acne and am looking for a natural cure or remedy that will help with my condition. I am 21 years old and have no history of any diseases and am not taking any medicines or prescriptions for anything. Some symptoms I have are oily skin, and deep cystic acne that does not come to a head. I usually break out around my mouth, chin, shoulders, chest, and back. It gets worse around the menstrual cycle. I have irregular periods, they are usually late. I have been taking different natural approaches such as changing my diet and taking vitamins to control my acne but nothing is working. I feel very depressed and hopeless at this point. I tried about everything to control my breakouts. Some things work at first then my acne comes back with a vengeance. I get cystic acne on my shoulders, middle of my back, and lower back. And around my mouth, and when it is the time of the month, I get a big cystic pimple in the middle of my neck. I have searched homeopathic remedies and came across people like me that had successful treatment which made me decide to take this approach. Is there anything specific you would recommend to cure my deep cystic acne? It feels like my hormonal acne has taken over my life, I feel very hopeless at this point. If there is anything I can do to improve my condition in any way, I would be extremely grateful to hear back from you.



Welcome to

Do not get depressed by this. It will be solved easily. Do not spoil your mind by such things which have solutions. You can start Pulsatilla 1M (Extracts of European wind flowering plant) five pills empty stomach in the morning (take on the alternate day), Hepar sulph 30 (Hepar sulphuris calcareum) five pills in the morning noon and night, Berberis aquafolium gel of SBL company apply on acne in morning and bedtime, Acnil soap or Trisan 0.5 % soap for face wash. By medicines, your acne may start discharge and then do not get tensed. It is a process of healing. Along with medicines, avoid junk food (spicy, oily, fat rich), take proper sleep, do not think much. Everything will be fine but I need follow-ups to decide the duration of treatment and further medication. If possible send pictures of acne.

Thank you doctor,

I have been suffering for a long time, sometimes it gets so bad that I do not even leave the house. I tried changing my diet, taking supplements, clay masks, antibiotics at one point but nothing ever worked. I really hope something does. It feels like my acne has taken over my life. Half the time I do not even want to leave my room. I miss having a normal social life. I have a few pictures, I use to have a lot more but deleted them. I deleted them because looking at them just made me feel even more hopeless and depressed. I breakout a lot around my mouth, on my neck, on my back and especially on my shoulders. They are very deep and cystic that do not come to an end and take a long time to heal. Very painful to touch. I really hope I can find a cure, I feel so lost.



Welcome back to

Please do not get depressed by this. You will be fine soon. You just start medicines which you told and take it for 15 days and give follow up. Still you have any questions you can discuss with me. Do not spoil your precious mood and body by this thing's thoughts. It is a very minor thing. Hormone changes also affect your health and beauty, it will not last a long time.
