Acupuncture Treatment of Urticaria

Abstract: cupuncture has long been used to treat urticaria in the Asian world. Acute urticaria can be easily and effectively treated with acupuncture. LI11 (Quchi), Sp10 (Xuehai), Sp6 (Sanyinjiao), and S36 (Zusanli) are the 4 acupuncture points most commonly prescribed. Chronic urticaria is a challenge for medical therapy. There are at least 6 kinds of acupuncture methods developed to overcome this challenge. The combination of ordinary acupuncture and auricular acupuncture has been observed to be a highly effective cur… Show more

“…Injections of vitamin B12 into acupoints have been used as a simple and effective method for the treatment of facial verruca plana [14]. Acupoint injections with vitamin B1 also have proven effective for the treatment of urticaria [15]. In addition, injections of bee venom into Zusanli (ST36) can modulate methamphetamine-induced hyperactivity and hyperthermia [31].…”

“…Studies on headache have shown that acupuncture provides direct or indirect inhibition of the trigeminal nucleus caudalis and dorsal horn neurons through increases in endogenous pain-modulating substances, such as β -endorphins, serum magnesium, and cerebrospinal fluid met-enkephalin, with positive effects on migraine and headache 36–38. The effects on pruritus are also thought to be related to the endogenous opioid peptides released through acupuncture treatment or to acupuncture stimulation of specific brain regions involved in the central processing of pruritus or to suppression of IgE production 24,39. Another study found that stimulation of acupoint P6 reduced corticosterone-induced depression and anxiety, possibly through modulation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis 40.…”

“…Current reports show that moxibustion effectively treats poor circulation, chronic urticaria, and chronic cough [24], but other studies report unintended adverse effects from the direct stimulation including pain, blistering, and suppuration [5, 6]. These adverse effects are caused by the difficulty in modulating the heat stimulus, which varies according to the material quantity, shape, and composition.…”
