Hi. Acne is caused by a particular sensitivity to the effects of androgens. Androgens are male hormones found in both male and female bodies. Androgens stimulate the sebaceous (oil) glands in your skin. Bacteria feeds off this excess oil, resulting in acne.
There is a lack of medical evidence that home remedies are effective. Ask your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics such as oxytetracycline 250mg twice a day or lymecycline 408mg once daily. In addition, he may prescribe a topical retinoid gel such as Differin (adapalene).
You don't say if you are male or female but female acne patients benefit from taking an anti-androgen such as Spironolactone and/or a special contraceptive pill called Diane35 (Dianette in the UK).
Best Wishes, Eloise.
