hi, ive never had any luck with tea tree oil as an acne cure, but it is my miracle cure secret remedy for any time i start to develop a stye or any eyelid irritation. for some reason, im prone to styes, but once i tried a tiny bit of oil and it disappeared. but be careful, it really stings. once i even went to the eye doctor and they couldnt do anything for it, so tea tree oil is my secret miracle cure, just in case any of you ever get a stye. for your acne, i would try clindamycin gel, and antibiotics, if its not severe.
