Acne Relief and Advice
Where can I get help for my Acne?
As well as using our Sulphur Soap to help you get relief for your symptoms, we recommend seeking medical assistance and advice.
The British Association of Deramatologists says:
“No treatment will completely ‘cure’ acne. The aims of treatment are to prevent new spots forming, to improve those already present, and to prevent scarring.”
Despite this, you can purchase many over-the-counter acne products at any chemist, but be aware that most of them have little clinically-proven benefit.
For severe or prolonged cases, there are a range of orally administered treatments, from antibiotics to hormonal and vitamin supplements that your doctor may prescribe.
Your doctor will be able to advise you on which course of action is most suitable for you. Any course of treatment is likely to take several months, and the results may depend on many factors. There is still not a single recognised cure for acne and opinion differs amongst dermatologists on the best treatment for the condition.
For the psychological problems that can develop during extended cases of Acne, there are many support groups such as stopspots.org who can offer advice. Your doctor may also be able to refer you to a counsellor, or you can ask for help and advice though NHS Direct.
