Our Treatments






Hormonal havoc can hurt self esteem and leave scars.


Teenage is also a time when any minor comment can have an effect on the self esteem. It is under these circumstances that acne vulgaris or pimples can create a sense of insecurity for the adolescent.

The skin lining all over the body is filled with sebaceous glands or something similar to sweat glands and are usually referred to as hair follicles or pores.

These are fine sac like structures which give the smooth texture to the skin by producing an oily substance on to the surface of the skin. But under certain circumstances especially during adolescence when the production of testosterone is at its peak, this hormone tends to block the outlet of the pore and appears as a raised surface over the skin and is called acne.

Blackheads, whiteheads, zits or pimples; whatever they are termed tend to usually occur more commonly on the face, chest, shoulders and sometimes on the back. The pore that is filled with the sebum tends to get blocked by the hormone and there is a formation of secondary infection leading to obstruction of pus etc.

This tends to spread along the surface of the skin causing cystic acne etc. Sometimes there is a purplish hue to the eruptions and it is called as Acne rosacea.

Acne tend to recur overtime even as one heals, and worse still, as they heal can cause pitting and scars. Pigmentation is also an occurrence as they heal due to blackheads.

Acne are common in individuals with an oily skin and in individuals with a tendency for delayed shedding of skin cells across the surface.

Women using oily cosmetics have a greater tendency to develop these. Due to hormone fluctuations the acne can be worse before menstrual cycle.

To normalise the shedding of skin cells, unclog the pores, prevent infection or in cases where there has already been a bacterial infection; to get rid of it are the usual tasks in treating acne.

More importantly to reduce the incidence and the acne leading to infection and scarring are the goals of treatment with homoeopathic medicine.
