Are there natural ways to get rid of acne around body?

Serious stuff: Today's medicine can always clear acne, but I'd urge you to be open to 21st century methods as well as "natural" / "folk". Visible acne is a sign of poor self-care and will interfere with your being able to get the job you want. Nothing's more "natural" than the vitamin-A-based / retinoic acid derivatives (topical, isotretinoin) and antibiotics like tetracycline that can clear you. ...Read more

Can you tell me natural ways to get rid of acne around body?

This is serious: Acne on the trunk won't respond to less than a mix of topical (benzoyl peroxide and/or topical retinoic acid) and systemic (antibiotic like tetracycline) Rx, unless you opt for isotretinoin. All are actually gifts from Mother Nature, but if you try home remedies or "pop" stuff, you'll be disappointed. Acne is a serious, chronic illness and a major liability. You deserve to be free of it. ...Read more

Natural ways to get rid of acne scars?

No such thing: I'm sorry, Heather. If you have acne scars because your family didn't allow you to be treated by a scientific physician out of superstitious preference for "natural medicine", you have my deepest sympathy. An evidence-based dermatologist or plastic surgeon can offer you treatment with laser, microsurgery, and/or fillers. Nothing you do alone, or anything you can buy from an herbalist, will help. ...Read more

My face is breaking out and i really need help. Is there a good cleanser for acne or natural ways to get rid of acne?

Forgive my frankness: You "really need help" but you're only willing to use a cleanser or "natural" remedies? They'll disappoint you. Are you from a family that has forbidden you to use prescription-strength rx because of their superstitions? You have my sympathy, but you need to take the initiative ; phone your family physician unless topical benzyl peroxide or a salicylic acid wash clears you in 2 weeks. ...Read more

Are there natural ways to get rid of an acne/pimple scar?

Are there natural ways to get rid of an acne/pimple scar?

Manage it: There's no quick fix for a pimple and nothing you can do on your own will touch a scar. Retinoic acid topically is a vitamin A derivative and it's also good for preventing pimples and may help fade post-inflammatoryp pigmentation. I hope that whether or not this meets your criteria for 'natural', you won't ignore what the 21st century has to offer you for Rx of this serious illness or any other. ...Read more

There aren't any: Depressed scars are permanent; red / brown marks fade in months. I'm really sorry you ended up with these lesions, and I hope it was not the result of a caregiver's preference for "natural remedies" over treatments that actually work. Get with your personal physician about managing your disease; if it's scarring, you'll need prescription-strength Rx. ...Read more
