A homeopathic remedy for cystic acne usually involves the use of silica, sulphur and pulsatilla as well as other ingredients. These ingredients have proven to be an effective homeopathic treatment for cystic acne.
Each pore has a follicle that contains a single hair and oil gland. The oil gland produces sebum to keep the skin soft and lubricated to ease the removal of dead skin cells.
There are times when an excess of sebum is produced, causing the pores to be blocked. Once the pores are blocked, debris, dirt and bacteria start collecting.
When a person gets cystic acne, not only are the pores blocked, the acne-causing bacteria present produces an enzyme which breaks down the walls of the follicle. There is an accumulation of pus and dead white blood cells, forming painful and unsightly cysts that may have a diameter of 5 mm or more.
Cystic acne is particularly painful and the common over-the-counter acne treatments are generally ineffective in treating cystic acne. Conventional treatments for cystic acne include the use of antibiotics or Accutane (oral isotretinoin).
Homeopathic remedies for cystic acne generally take a longer period of time to show results. However, there are fewer side effects in treating and preventing cystic acne as compared to conventional treatments.
Because of this, more and more people now prefer a homeopathic cystic acne treatment to taking oral antibiotics or Accutane.
A homeopathic medicine known as pulsatilla and silica is used for those suffering from hormonal acne which is accompanied by puberty. Silica is largely used by patients who have white pustules.
Homeopathic remedies for cystic acne, along with a sensible skin care regimen, are exceptionally effective. However, before you decide on a homeopathic treatment for cystic acne, be sure to consult a qualified homeopath.
