Acne and pimples generally occur due to hormonal changes happening in the body. They are very prominent in teenagers undergoing hormonal changes. The growth hormones become more active and the oil glands there in the skin produce more. The glands present under hair follicles are infected and get inflamed, resulting in pimples. Acne, particularly on the face, cheeks, and chin can be quite annoying and depressing. An inflammatory skin condition arises when there is a larger production of sebum (from sebaceous glands). Sebum along with the debris, dirt, clogs the hair follicles present on the skin. The clogged follicles act as a catalyst making possible the growth of the Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria which causes acne and pimples.
While there are different types of acne (Acne vulgaris, Acne rosacea, Acne conglobata, etc.), the Homeopathic approach is the same, recognizing and removing the primary trigger for acne, thus, curing the affected person completely. The natural medicines used in the treatment deals with the acne problems without any complications and side-effects, the required changes in the food and lifestyle guarantee that the positive results of the Homeopathic treatment are not superficial and results are long-lasting.
