Q: Since childhood, I’ve frequently experienced hot itchy red spots around my chin that are so uncomfortable I need to ice them for relief. I’m also now suffering from adult onset acne mostly on my chin and neck area. Are these two conditions connected and do you have any suggestions?
A: Often, both acne and irritated skin are indicative of too much toxicity in the blood and excessive heat in the body overall. It is therefore likely that whatever toxicity your body is contending with is somehow leading to both conditions — though there are likely other factors at play as well. When under the supervision of an Ayurvedic practitioner, you may be administered methods that help to detoxify the blood such as blood letting. Natural Ayurvedic remedies that help with resolving skin complaints include making a paste of turmeric and sandalwood (with water) and leaving it on the skin until it dries, applying a very few drops of coconut oil to the skin, and avoiding sour and pungent foods like yogurt, pickles, garlic, onions, and tomatoes.
