Therapeutic and experimental therapeutic studies on acupuncture and itch: review of the literature.

Carlsson, C P and Wallengren, Joanna LU (2010) In Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology 24. p.1013-1016
Abstract
Abstract Itch accompanies most inflammatory skin diseases but may occur as a solitary sensation in otherwise normal skin. Chronic itch often requires combined treatments but some cases remain therapy resistant. Complementary medicine is becoming increasingly popular among patients. Acupuncture is the oldest and most well-studied alternative option with evidence-based effect on pain. This article summarizes the rational for the use of acupuncture in treatment of itch and reviews therapeutic and experimental therapeutic studies on acupuncture and itch.
