Acne runs in our family, bad acne, cystic. So it was no real surprise when our son developed it in middle school. He has suffered with it terribly until now. He is a junior in high school. We tried everything. He's been on doxycycline for a year and a half. But now we've found something that really does work and we found it by accident!
I am an amateur herbalist and had just discovered that olive leaf cures a multitude of ills, including the common cold. So I sent my husband to the store to get me two bottles when I had a terrible cold, knowing from previous experience that it could really help. He picked up one bottle of olive leaf capsules and one of nettle capsules because they were right next to the olive leaf and he didn't look carefully. We wondered what to do with the nettle til I did a little research and found out that it can be used to treat skin disorders including acne. There are no side effects. It's eaten like a vegetable in France! Anyway, my son started taking it twice a day and in one month his acne is almost completely gone. He is so much more confident and happy now! Wow! :)

Yup and other members drink Nettle Tea. Nettle is considered a DHT or 5alpha reductase inhibitor and acts sorta like Saw Palmetto (anti-androgen & 5-alpha reductase inhibitor) does if you've come across this herb as well. Most Males and some females seem to favor the B6, Zinc, & Saw Palmetto Regimen, but perhaps you can test out some olive leaf for his acne as well orally & topically as I've heard good things about it's anti-candida properties (may have if ever take antibiotics for acne).

Hope your son's skin gets 100% sooon
