Is homeopathy available for acne treatment?

There are homeopathic medications for acne treatment, though there's no substantial evidence that they're effective. homeopaths believe that acne is evidence of an internal imbalance and cannot be cured topically. The underlying imbalance is the root cause. The surface bacteria that cause acne might be eliminated simply by maintaining cleanliness and a healthy diet. If, however, acne is not relieved with this conservative approach, you should seek an evaluation by a licensed homeopath. The homeopath will do a constitutional examination. This is a complete assessment of your physical, emotional, and intellectual characteristics. Armed with this information, the homeopath will prescribe a treatment. Possible recommendations include belladonna, calendula, hepar sulphur, kali bromatum, and silicea.
