Skin & Allergy Clinic

The Skin & Allergy Clinic at Upton Clinic offer the undoubted benefits of Chinese medicine in the treatment of both common and uncommon diseases of the skin – from a simple sun allergy to Lichen planus. Many acute and chronic disorders can be significantly helped and resolved by the correct use of Chinese herbs.

Herbal medicine has been successfully used in the Orient for thousands of years to manage and benefit diseases of the skin. In modern times, specialist dermatology departments in hospitals throughout China use the holistic principles of traditional Chinese medicine to treat the widest range of dermatological conditions. Recent research in the West has also clearly demonstrated not only efficacy but the lack of side effects of this method of treatment.

I have suffered with very bad Eczema on the palm of my hand and back of my legs for about 3 years,so bad that my skin was all cracked and covered by dry skin and would often bleed.

The itchiness was unbearable and I just could not help scratching it which made it worse. I have had many different conventional creams prescribed to me by many different doctors 

each taking a different approach to my condition of which some worked briefly but never kept it away and it always come back a lot wose.Then we thought we would give Chinese Medicine

 a try and we got results with a combination of acupuncture and oral Chinese herbs and a herbal cream to stop the itchiness which actually worked unlikethe other creams I have tried.

 I began to see result after about a week and it continused to get betterand better and my condition now is the best it has ever been and is nearly completely gone thanks to Helen. 

Helen offers a great,friendly service and I would advise any one to give Chinese medicine a try.
