Hello doctor,

I am a 23-year-old male. I have had pimples, acne, and scars from the age of 15 years. I have redness and red scar marks left behind by the acne. I was advised to stay away from sunlight. Is there any permanent treatment for the scars?

Kindly help.



Welcome to

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. Personalized homeopathy treatment can help treat acne and scars. Are the scars caused due to acne or scratching? I suggest you to follow a few instructions mentioned below.

  1. Follow up with the cause of the scars.
  2. Take tablet Hepar sulphuris calcareum, (anti-inflammatory, used for skin eruptions) ten tablets at night time for seven days.
  3. Use Echinacea angustifolia ointment (White Petrolatum, Paraffin and Lanolin) on the scars of the face daily.
  4. Take tablet potassium bromide (relieves severe acne with pustules and itching) ten tablets daily morning for seven days.

Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them and take medications with their consent.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
