Eczema is an allergic inflammation of the skin. Eczema can cause an itchy rash with redness and scaling, often associated with a predisposition to allergy. Eczema is very common.

Stress and allergies (nickel, chemical substances), food intolerance (cow's milk, peanuts) can aggravate eczema.

Acupuncture can help strengthen the immune system, minimise stress and relieve allergies. The use of Chinese herbs might be necessary in cases of severe eczema.
