Can you tell me if there are good herbal remedies for cystic acne?

No: Anyone who tells you otherwise is playing you for a fool. Cystic acne usually requires treatment with isotretinoin. This is not pleasant, risk-free, or cheap, but it gets the job done. If someone for whom you are responsible has cystic acne, you have a duty to get them treated effectively -- ur failure to do this is likely to lead to permanent scarring and permanent resentment. Do the right thing. ...Read more

Scientific Rx: You're 21 years old and acne is now a major personal and professional liability. Please get over the idea that "natural is best" for any serious health issue -- it's not.

Natural Approaches: Hello, Acne is powerful. While isotretinoin is not your only option, natural remedies have proven themselves to simply be weaker than their chemical competitors. Think about organic detergents and soaps. Same deal, they are just weaker and may only work for less resistant situations.
