In our office, we treat children's problems all the time, particularly, skin problems like eczema. Eczema is a situation where you have a young child whose immune system isn't quite formed correctly, and they are overwhelmed with so many factors that are immune to the body. The immune system will react in a very hyper way, by attacking the skin. Mistaking the skin as harboring something foreign. As a result, you have horrible itching, scratching and rash all night long. This is something very personal to me because one of my three kids suffered with a horrible case of eczema as a child. We were able to resolve this issue completely with Chinese medicine. What's nice about it is, out of all my three kids, she has the best skin now. So in the case of treatment, we use acupuncture to modulate the immune system, to calm it down, herbs to nourish and heal the skin, as well as, topical to control the itching. In this case, the results have been really phenomenal. I would suggest to all parents out there, if your child suffers from eczema and you don't want to use the big guns like the steroids or immune suppressants, try Chinese acupuncture first. I guarantee, within three months, you will see substantial improvement.
