I've recently developed an itchy rash on my neck, which is very dry and reddish with a little swelling. I thought it might be an allergic reaction to a silver chain I wore around my neck, so I have since taken it off, or that it might be a bout of eczema. I also tried various ointments for eczema and it got better with the reddish swellings going down for the most part and looked like it was almost gone, but my neck has started to itch again with a few slightly swollen reddish patches and there are some dry patches that don't seem to go away.
Can anyone explain what might be the cause of this rash according to Chinese medicine? Are there any acupuncture points that I might try to help this problem? I'm assuming it is probably eczema, as it itches and there are dry spots that are reddish.
I've had this now for over 3 weeks.
Thanks for any advice.
