Eczema-reddish and itchy
The patient has had eczema for 3 weeks. The prescription cream, Clotrimazole and Betamethasone Dipropionate Cream USP, 1%/0.05% (base) did not help. She felt itchy, and the rash spread rapidly on her limbs and face. She could not sleep well and was in a generally bad mood. After three sessions with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, the red marks and swelling was gone. Her skin became smooth, her rash was controlled, and felt less itchy overall. She is continuing the treatment to improve her skin color.

From September 2017, my lips were swollen red, with an infection, and when it was severe, it would bleed. The hospital could not give an actual diagnosis. Over the span of a year, I took a lot of steroid drugs, immunosuppressive drugs, but the symptoms kept returning. In December of 2018, I started my acupuncture treatment with Connie. I had five sessions with her, and my symptoms had completely gone.

Patient has noticeable scabs from scratch wounds. After one session of acupuncture, her itching disappeared, but occasionally returned with about 50% intensity after leaving the clinic. After her third session, she only woke up once from the itching while sleeping. After her fourth session, her itching seems to have disappeared. However, the patient returned for a fifth session after waking up from an itching sensation in her left lower back at about 4-5 a.m.

The patient was diagnosed with ADHD, and was prescribed medication by physicians. However after medication, the patient seemed to have a reduced appetite, and had lost a lot of weight.
