Recently  I got a case of acne ,an adolescent guy  having acne on shoulders and back.Earlier a few years back he had come to me for acne on face.then i  prescribed some common remedies and gave a few general instructions.he is  very fair ,tall ,lean and very sensitive .he had stress due to family issues. This time I didnt go to the detailed case analysis. just repertorised a single symptom acne on shoulders .kali carb one dose was given. all the acne disappeared .now 6 months over..i met him recently when he came with his mom for her complaints. he informed me that no recurrence of acne.So I was thinking he is not a Kalicarb constitutionally.but it gave a wonderful cure.
