Homeopathic remedies work by working at the level of the immune system taking care of the imbalances in the body and resolving the main problem thereby changing the effect seen on the skin.
For instance, acne is visible on skin, but the root of the problem is either faulty metabolism or hormonal disturbances. The correct homeopathic remedy corrects the underlying problem and therefore the acne will heal and finally resolve. This is in direct contrast to the way acne is treated by using external applications and dermatological procedures all of which do not address the core issue. External solutions treat the symptoms but not the cause of the problem.
Why exactly do skin diseases occur?
The skin is not just the largest organ of our body but it is also one of the main area through which the body gets rid of its toxin. Skin conditions are merely local manifestations of some constitutional affection. They represent the effort of nature to get rid of some imbalances in the system, congenital or acquired, which should not therefor be suppressed but supported.

The various kinds of skin diseases, which respond well to homoeopathy, are:
- Childhood eczema
- Vitiligo-is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches.
- Psoriasis- causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin.
- Seborrheic Dermatitis- Dandruff and cradle cap are common names for seborrheic dermatitis.
Boils, pustules, whiteheads.
Urticaria- Hives, also known as urticaria, are an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps, patches, or welts on the skin that appear suddenly — either as a result of allergies, or for other reasons.
This is especially true for eczema which is usually the result of an allergic reaction and may also be seasonal in nature. By applying ointments we risk treating only the symptoms, and when the skin relapses, it’s likely to come back full force. It works to calm the immune system against the allergen and hence the eczematous rashes fade and the fresh skin is clear and free from the rash.
The indications for our remedies not only aid in this by correction of the rash, but also avoid the dangers of suppression by external applications. Additionally, because of the homeopathic treatment, one is ensured that there will be no secondary complications of that skin condition.
Homeopathic medicines, if used in the early stages of any skin eruption, usually lead to a complete recovery.
