What Is The Treatment For Adult Acne Which Causes Black Scars On The Skin?

I am 43 yrs of age, suffering from adult acne which leaves behind black scars. It mostly occurs on the chin, cheeks and near the nose. The acne does not have an opening and any external application of home remedies (ex nutmeg powder) only aggravates it. Someone suggested to go for Berberis Aquif mother tincture.I bought one which has Dr.Reckeweg mentioned on it. Please suggest on how it should be taken - applied or internally taken. Will it aggravate my acne first before healing ( as I have heard this about most homeopathic medicines)? Please help. Thanks

Hello,

You are suffering from acne that leaves scars on the face. To prevent it keep your skin clean and healthy. Take bath daily. Avoid taking spicy, oily food, red meat, food that is too sweet or salty. Do not take any food that causes you allergy. Take non vegetarian food in small quantity. You are suggested to take adequate water and fluid. Take high fiber food. Avoid constipation as it may trigger acne. Take laxatives if needed.

Take steam inhalation at least once daily to help pores open up. Clogged pores cause acne. Thereafter, wash your face with cold water or apply fresh ice to close the pores. Now apply a turmeric or sandalwood based face pack, add few drops of fresh lemon juice in it and apply it on your face. Keep it till it gets dry, wash it with cold water and apply 1-2 drops of water based moisturizer. Do as suggested once or twice daily along with diet control and regular bath, it will get controlled. Since your skin is oily, be careful in choosing lotions and creams.

Wear cotton clothes. Stay away from addictions if any. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight. Berberis Aquif mother tincture is a homeopathic medicine, consult your homeopathic doctor before taking it. It should be diluted before use. Homeopathic medicines commonly have no side effects only if taken correctly. There is diet restrictions with homeopathic medicines also.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
