Leaf-2f  When Will I Be Better?

A treatment course for nummular eczema varies depending on the severity and duration of the condition. Mild cases with a recent onset generally clear up within a month of treatment. Serious cases can take up to four months of treatment to fully resolve.  We treat until the condition is stable. Once this happens, the body naturally remains in a healthy state on its own.

We rarely recommend acupuncture to treat nummular eczema as herbal medicine is far more direct and powerful.
