Thanks for the query,

Acne occurs when tiny holes on the surface of the skin, called pores, become clogged. Each pore is an opening to a canal called a follicle, which contains a hair and an oil gland. Normally, the oil glands help keep the skin lubricated and help remove old skin cells. When glands produce too much oil, the pores can become blocked, accumulating dirt, debris, and bacteria. The blockage is called a plug or comedone. The top of the plug may be white (whitehead) or dark (blackhead). If it ruptures, the material inside, including oil and bacteria, can spread to the surrounding area and cause an inflammatory reaction. If the inflammation is XXXXXXX in your skin, the pimples may enlarge to form firm, painful cysts.

Acne commonly appears on the face and shoulders. Acne can be triggered by stress, greasy or oily cosmetic and hair products, certain drugs (such as steroids, testosterone, estrogen, and phenytoin), high levels of humidity and sweating. Despite the popular belief that chocolate, nuts, and other foods cause acne, research does not confirm this idea. Thus it is wise to keep these factors away to prevent acne formation.
Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle soap is a good one for clearing acne but you will need to go to a homeopath doctor for the medications..

Homeopathy helps to maintain a normal sebaceous secretion, relieves the inflammatory condition, pain and accelerates the healing process. Homeopathy treats the patients as a whole so maintains the hormonal balance and prevents the recurrent acne eruption.

The frequent sneezing and cold symptoms are the allergic syndromes and you have allergic rhinitis. There are some cells called mast cells distributed on skin and mucus membranes when comes in contact to any foreign protein or antigen swelled and filled up with histamine. The rapture of the histamine manifests the allergic symptoms like sneezing or skin swelled up with itching, runny nose, red congested eyes etc.

Homeopathy treatment helps to correct the allergic tendency in your body by improving your body’s susceptibility to the allergens and thus help to provide a long term cure for your health issue as well as manage to improve the acute symptoms like sneezing, running nose, eye congestion etc.

Hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up.

Answered by Dr. Rangadhar Satapathy 21 hours later

Thanks for follow up.

Yes, treatment with Homeopathy is possible.

It still requires you to XXXXXXX me personally or any homeopathic physician in your locality. Such treatment with Homeopathy requires extensive knowledge about you before instituting treatment. The scope is limited on this platform. Unfortunately this platform does not allow treatment.

You can seek further details at this link, WWW.WWWW.WW

Let me know if you have further doubts about homeopathic treatment.

With best regards
