Have developed Crepey skin on the upper arms what is the cause of this in Chinese Medicine
As always the best would be to consult directly with an acupuncturist in your area who can physically inspect you and ask lots of health/lifestyle related questions. There are many potential causes that run the gamut from parasitic infections, allergies (internal and external causes), certain psychiatric issues, nerve issues from the neck or other neurological issues from the brain. A practitioner will be able to go down through your history and other related issues and figure this out. It also may be helpful to get general western bloodwork to rule out things such as anemia which can also cause issues like this.
Chad , renewing appreciation & respects … are you open to adding detail to your advice on this topic ? Please …
such as Which possible “ neck nerve “ or “ brain neurology issues “ … any other finer-points
Best Wellbeing to you !
Thanking you . . . . .
There’s actually not much that can be added with the information provided. This is where the diagnostic processes of Chinese Medicine (tongue, pulse, medical history questioning, analyzing western medical reports, palpation, etc.) all come into play. For reference, the majority of these are described in our tcm theory section.
To Linda , ‘ as i remember you this morning , sending two helps I’ve found for this condition . In case welcomed . These are aids which add to tcm … if ok with Chad to include .Chad refers also to asking western medical practitioners
