Hello doctor,

I am a female and I have been suffering from acne for the past few years. I have oily skin with acne and it has made my face look bad with dark spots and pimples.

Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

I suggest you follow the instructions mentioned below.

1. Exercise daily until you sweat.

2. Take plenty of water daily.

3. Use a good herbal face wash regularly.

4. Take a tablet of Purim (neem and turmeric) thrice daily for 12 weeks.

5. Take a multivitamin tablet once daily for three weeks.

6. Apply a good moisturizer twice daily.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
