I have been treating many skin diseases successfully with acupuncture and herbs lately. Most patients are given up by their dermatologists. But for me, all their conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, herpes, or dermatitis are treatable. Based on what their skin look like, I need to give them the diagnosis of Chinese Medicine. If the skin lesion is red, I consider there is heat inside of the body. Blister and swollen are due to dampness. Dryness is blood deficiency, Itching sensation is wind, etc. I will select different points and give patients customer formula to treat the skin diseases depending on what patterns they have. Generally speaking it takes only 2 to 3 weeks for patients to see the big difference. So if dermatologists can’t give you the answer of your skin problem, it is very worthy to try Chinese Medicine Therapies.
