Treatment by Chinese Herbal Medicine of Pompholyx Eczema

There are several factors that are regularly associated with initial eruptions, or subsequent relapses. Frequently the first attack is triggered by hot weather, appearing in late spring or summer; indeed a proportion of patients tend to get eruption only at these times, the eczema spontaneously subsiding once the weather turns cooler. Alternatively an initial attack, or exacerbation, may follow intense emotional upset, frustration, grief or unremitting stress. Commonly excessive hand washing in new mothers, or the use of detergents, or other chemicals without proper protection will be sufficient to irritate the hands and precipitate an
attack.
