Homeopathy Treatment For Acne
Curing Acne with homeopathy…
Acne is a common skin disease which involves inflammation of the tiny pores and attached glands that covers the face, back, arms and chest. It broadly includes conditions like blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, nodules and cysts which form due to plugged pores.
Though acne is commonly seen in teenagers, it may also affect adults in their late 20s and 30s. Though not life threatening, acne can cause sever scarring and affect ones self-confidence, significantly.
Some causes of Acne?
So far, there are only myths about what causes acne and no one really knows what exactly causes them. Clinically it is presumed that the following conditions could be responsible for or may aggravate cases of acne:
Genetic predisposition: If any one of your parents had a tendency to acne you are also prone to develop this condition.
Hormonal changes: During teenage years as well as during pregnancy, there is an increase of the male hormone Androgen, which leads to excess sebum or oil production by your sweat glands. This leads to blocking of the pores which causes acne.
Bad foods: Chocolate, greasy food, meats etc have been commonly linked with acne. Though this link is questionable, when consumed, some individuals may see an increase in acne.
Dirty and oily skin: Dirt and unhealthy skin can aggravate acne by clogging your skin pores. Keeping you skin clean can help reduce acne. However, excessive scrubbing, washing and cleaning with astringent solutions can also irritate your skin and increase them.
Bacteria: Propioni-bacterium acnes, a bacterium, reside naturally on the skin and uses sebum as a growth nutrient. They multiply when there is excess sebum production (oily skin) seen during puberty and in those with acne. White blood cells try to fight off this infection which leads to a reaction as commonly seen in inflamed acne.
