Acne is common human skin disease mostly found in adults during their teenage. Characterized by seborrhoea (red skin), comedones ( blackheads), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples), nodules, etc. Acne affects skin over face, the upper part of the chest, back where skin contains hair follicles, sebaceous glands. Mostly, acne is seen in adolescents because of increased testosterone levels or androgens. Homeopathy for acne is different from conventional treatment in that a homeopathic remedy is individualized to the person. Because every person is different, no single homeopathic remedy will work for everyone. A remedy is selected based on a person’s unique set of symptoms, including their acne symptoms.
