Home remedy to treat acne vulgaris?
Hello, I am 17 years old. I have acne developed on the face and upper trunk. I am in my adolescents. Initially I thought these are common in my age. But there is swelling and pus formation. I am having pain also. It looks very awkward. There is also painful lumps beneath the skin, tender red bumps. My friend has advised me that these are known as acne vulgaris. Please suggest some home remedy to treat acne vulgaris.
@sandesh Your doctor may prescribe topical or oral antibiotics, which may be needed for more severe and widespread acne.
Oral isotretinoin (Accutane) may also be prescribed for more severe nodules and cysts, scarring acne, as well as acne not responding to conventional treatments. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, about 85 percent of people who take one course of this medicine see permanent clearing of their acne.
Birth control pills in tandem with an antibiotic or a drug called spironolactone (off-label treatment for acne) may be prescribed for female patients.
In the case of a very severe flare-up, the use of an oral steroid, such as prednisone, can be used when initiating other treatments, such as oral isotretinoin.
