What are some natural ways to clear acne?

Forgive my frankness: Acne is a serious, non-lifestyle-related, chronic disease that is a serious personal and professional liability if it is not managed until it remits on its own. The benzoyl peroxide that's the mainstay of initial treatment is derived from nature, the retinoic acid derivatives are vitamin a analogues, and the antibiotics are nature's gifts. They're what works. Take advantage of them. Best wishes. ...Read more

I : I agree. There are several conditions that can appear similar to acne on the chest. I would get an evaluation first, and then discuss options with your dermatologist . If moderate or severe, it is certainly important to get it controlled in order to prevent the possibility of scarring. Read more about acne on the link below. I hope that helps! ...Read more

Tough cases referred for isotretinoin. Manage as a chronic disease. Good luck. ...Read more

Would you ask the fire department, "how can you help me without spraying water?" don't let some aversion you have to scientific medicine cause yourself or a teen for whom you are responsible suffer unnecessarily from a chronic, serious, non-lifestyle-related, readily-manageable disease. Base your thinking on facts, not internet / pop lies. Cheers. ...Read more

Doctor's visit now: It's time to partner. Hopefully you are already using topical benzoyl peroxide. Your physician will decide whether to add topical clindamycin, a systemic antibiotic, a topical retinoic acid, an oral contraceptive pill if you're a "she", or refer you to a dermatologist for the big guns.

Are there some effective ways to clear up acne, with at home products?

Use real Rx: Home remedies (vinegar, lemon, honey) will probably disappoint you. If you are responsible for the phyisical and emotional health of a teenager, it would be inexcusable not to make scientific rx available to him/her from a qualified physician.

Are there natural ways to prevent acne?

Are there natural ways to prevent acne?

No: Despite anecdotes and ads, no "holistic" remedy helps much. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. If needed after a few weeks, consider adding an oral antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline / Minocycline as suitable for the individual. Dermatologists have the big guns -- accutane, lasers. Freedom from acne should be a person's right. Good luck. ...Read more

Could you tell me what are natural ways i can do to prevent or heal acne?

Let's get real: The stuff that works the best -- antibiotics and vitamin a derivatives -- are mother nature's gifts. The stuff that doesn'twork (painting your face with magic honey, squeezing lemons on pimples) are unworthy of anyone in the 21st century.
