Acne treatments and dangers

One extremely controversial treatment is Accutane. This prescription product has been used successfully for scarring cystic acne or acne that has not responded to other treatments. However, it has been associated with severe birth defects; dry eyes, mouth, lips, nose and skin; itching; nosebleeds; muscle aches; sun sensitivity; and poor night vision. It can increase levels of triglycerides and cholesterol, and affect liver enzymes as well. Some studies associate use of Accutane with depression and even suicide. - The Downey Patriot - Paging Dr Frischer Acne
We agree with this report completely, and recommend that in the first instance acne should be treated with the most natural treatment available to avoid the risks of serious side effects.
Manuka UMF honey is highly antibacterial and natural, it has been shown to be very effective in treating acne as has manuka oil, (both from the same plant which only grows in New Zealand) either in pure form or in a cream formulation.
An acne treatment pack featuring Manuka honey, soap and oil has achieved very good results
