Acupuncture for the alleviation of Eczema and Dermatitis

Acupuncture shows clinical effectiveness in reducing or resolving itch, mean wheal and flare size and discomfort associated with Eczema and dermatitis.

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a common condition affecting many Australians. It is caused by a person displaying a limited capacity for repairing the skin barrier, resulting in the skin losing moisture and becoming dry, red and or/scaly. This causes the individual to want to scratch the area, which can result in the area becoming infected. Although eczema is not contagious and many people accept the condition as a manageable part of their lives, continued breakouts can leave the individual susceptible to developing food allergies, hay fever and other sensitivities later in life.¹

Common Dermatitis and Eczema treatments tend to centre on limiting exposure to irritants such as detergents, heat, pollens, etc. During breakouts, over the counter creams are recommended, usually containing some form of corticosteroid, which although moderately effective in treating the symptomatic discomfort of eczema, displays a limited capacity for reducing the severity and recurrence of future breakouts. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) aims to restore the body's own ability to manage this condition by working systematically and although eczema may appear to be an external condition, it is in reality a reflection of an internal disharmony which TCM aims to address, resulting in a lower frequency and less severe incidence of flare ups.
