Atopic Eczema

Atopic eczema is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin which causes the skin to become extremely dry and itchy.  The itch in atopic dermatitis is so severe it can take over your life. And after you scratch, the skin becomes inflamed.  Eventually this leads to an inflammatory reaction which creates a cycle where the itch causes inflammation and the inflammation leads to more itching. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine help eczema by reducing inflammation, itch, and restoring the body to its natural balance.
