Acne also technically known as acne vulgaris is one of the most common human skin disease, featured by areas of seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), nodules (large papules), pimples, and possibly scarring.
It occurs in teenagers mostly resulting from the hormonal changes they undergo during puberty, but age group is not a constant parameter, it can affect people of any age group because of food habits, pollution, chemical product reaction, cosmetic reaction or any such stimuli that irritates the skin.
Although acne subsides with alternative medication, but in some cases of chronic acnes it keeps re-occurring. Thus it is required to address the disease from very root cause of it, so that it does not re- appear. We at Acure have healed thousands of patients having different severities of acne with proper medication.
Social Impact of Acne
Acne builds a major psychological impact on most patients having it. The psychological effects may range from such reduced self-esteem, reduced social interactions, increased irritability and in very extreme cases, depression or suicide.
Acne Homeopathic Treatment
Homeopathy treats acne from the root. Homeopathic treatment centralizes on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines is so effective because they are selected after a complete understanding and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. Also it essentially focuses on addressing the separate acne cause that the particular patient may be facing.
Homeopathy works efficiently on the principle of recognizing the exact causes of the disease. Thus you will experience a personalized approach at Acure to identify your condition and what could have possibly caused it. Here we discuss a few of them :
- Family/Genetic history
- Hormonal activity, such as menstrual cycles and puberty. During puberty, an increase in male sex hormones called androgens causes the follicular glands to get larger and make more sebum
- Inflammation, skin irritation or scratching of any sort will activate inflammation
- Hyperactive sebaceous glands
- Accumulation of dead skin cells that block or cover pores
- Any medication containing lithium, barbiturates or androgens
- Exposure to certain chemical compounds. Chloracne is particularly linked to toxic exposure to dioxins, namely Chlorinated dioxins
- Exposure to halogens. Halogen acne is linked to exposure to halogens (e.g. iodides, chlorides, bromides, fluorides)
- Chronic use of amphetamines or other similar drugs
