Homeopathic Medicines for Acne and Acne Scars

Acne has become a major beauty problem now, especially with young girls and boys. It often makes a patient desperate for a cure. Modern medicine has very limited available options to cure acne, while homeopathy can offer a good range of treatments. Some of the important homeopathic remedies are as follows:

Arsenicum Album:

  • It can be used for red colored pimples and acne with burning pain. As the patient is restless, it offers some relief to the patient by providing warmth.

Berberis Aquifolium:

  • It is an another important remedy, which clears up the complexion. You can apply its tincture also.

Kali Bromatum:

  • It is used for acne with black spots and long-standing acne scars.


  • It is again a wonderful remedy, especially for females.

Phosphoric Acid:

  • It is used for male patients with sexual complaints and acne.

Nux Vomica:

  • It is used for patients having a sedentary lifestyle and a history of constipation.


  • It is used for red pimples with burning pain and diarrhea.

Juglans Cinerea:

  • It acts as on acne along with liver problems.


  • It is again a wonderful remedy for pimples with burning pain and long-standing acne scars.

Natrum Muriaticum:

Rhus Toxicodendron:

  • It is a wonderful remedy for pimples with sticky discharge.

Some of the other remedies are Antimonium Crudum, Hydrocotyle Asiatica, Secale Cornutum, etc. But only medication alone will not help. Take plenty of water and avoid self-medications.
