Skin Conditions Treated With Chinese Medicine

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » Skin Conditions Treated With Chinese Medicine

One of the lesser-known uses of Chinese medicine is for the treatment of dermatological disorders. In my practice, I have treated people for many skin conditions, including acne, warts, psoriasis, scars and poison ivy. Both acupuncture and Chinese herbs seem to be effective for these issues, although one type of medicine may be preferable in a specific case.

Here are several recent articles about the use of Chinese medicine for dermatology cases:

There is “moderate” evidence that gingko can treat vitiligo, without the need for phototherapy.

A Chinese study found that a combination of traditional herbal medicine was helpful in treating eczema in young people (ages unspecified).

Topical use of the indigo plant helped to heal psoriasis lesions in a Taiwanese study.
