What are the symptoms of Acne?

Acne can present in various ways in a person, depending on the severity.

Severe type of Acnepresents with large sized pimples called nodules that are pus-filled. Blackheads and whiteheads are present. Pain is a common accompanying feature and scarring is a common complication.

Why does Acne occur?

Acne happens by the interplay of hormones and bacteria. A particular type of hormones called Androgens, when excessively produced, cause increased secretion of a smooth fluid from the sebaceous glands, called sebum. The excess secretion clogs the pores of the glands, that later get infected with bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes and cause pimples. This phenomenon is commonly witnessed during puberty, just before menses and even during pregnancy.

Heavy usage of cosmetics on the face or using cosmetic products of low quality also augment the process of Acne. Additionally, stress has been known to increase Acne.

How does Homeopathy work in Acne?

The basis of Acne is hormonal excess. Homeopathic medicines work by modifying the hormonal imbalance to bring it back to a state of equilibrium. All this is done without suppressing the body’s natural secretions and processes.

VAcne, when treated in time with Homeopathy, leaves behind healthier and glowing skin without compromising on the hormonal levels.
