Acupuncture for Eczema

flower image

Eczema is a type of skin disorder that appears on the outer layer of the skin. There is usually a burning or itching sensation. This medical condition is characterized by inflammation, redness, blisters (in severe cases), crusts, scales or scabs on the skin surface.

How does acupuncture work for Eczema?

Acupuncture can help eczema in a few ways.

First, it can improve blood flow to area that are involved and increase delivery of nutrients to help the skin heal.

Second, acupuncture improves the function or balance of immune cells to resolve the inflammation that causes the eczema.

Third, acupuncture helps to reduce a person's reactivity to the environment (one of the causes of eczema).

Finally, acupuncture helps to strengthen the skin itself, making it less susceptible to eczema (or any inflammation) in the first place.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
