Abscesses significantly improve within 3 to 4 weeks with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Additional one or two months of treatment helps to prevent further recurrences.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy can help reduce their occurrences by at least 90%. Abscesses are inflammations with pockets of pus (white blood defensive cells) inside a cavity in response to infections or foreign objects. Mouth, skin, eyelid, nose, genital area, and internal organs can be affected. They often occur without an apparent cause and can be persistent for years.
