Skin rush treatment on inner thighs


#1

I am having a red skin rush on upper thighs? Is this connected with the lung or the liver meridian?

What is the purpose of your question? Just academic learning, curiosity, to treat yourself? If to treat yourself, are you a practitioner? is your treatment modality acupuncture, herbal medicine, both?

Without knowing anything about you, your other health issues, and what answers you are looking for there isn’t much I can offer. In the most general terms possible, skin rashes are often either wind-heat or heat in the blood (although there are other possible diagnoses). It depends on the rash, what makes it worse, what makes it better, your other health issues, your tongue, your pulse, etc.

Thank you very much for your reply. The reason for my question is
multifaceted, i.e. academic learning, curiosity, and what changes i could
make in order to have this rush dissipate. I am not a practitioner. I am a
lay person who believes in knowledge and who faces various health
challenges by asking questions. I only use goat’s milk and cheese. I
stopped having dairy a few days ago. I used to eat eggs every day. I
stopped that too. I also eat pasture raised meat and healthy fish. I make
bone broth. I eat an abundance of vegetables and some beans, and same
fruit. I have acupuncture treatments every week. My acupuncturist treated
the lung meridian for three consecutive weeks. I have not seen any
improvement. I am also not getting any worse. On rare occasions this rush
itches. I use only natural products. I have had autoimmune hepatitis for
the last 37 years. I have been continuously on prednisone, for a number of
years on a low dose, i.e. 5 mg. I am doing very well considering my
various diagnosis. As new challenges appear, I like to grasp them and
understand them myself in order to make the proper changes in my life. I am
a practitioner of Qigong. I study with a teacher.

Regarding this rush, I was not yet able to establish what makes it better
or worse. My acupuncturist checks my pulse from time to time. I would very
much appreciate any other suggestions you could give me on what would be
helpful to me in order to decipher this challenge and to grasp whether this
is a lung or a liver weakness, or could it be both. Another clue, I am
still morning the death of my dear husband who died last year in August,
although, I am much better now.

Gratefully,

This is the follow-up and, I believe, the clue for the rush. I have been
craving all my life (I am 67) the sour taste. My favorite fruit is sour
cherry. Whenever I can find them during the summer season at the farmers
market I buy them and eat them in larger quantities. I never had any
reactions to that. I have discovered tart cherry extract. I started taking
tart cherry chewing tablets about a month ago. That coincides with the
beginning of the rush. Yesterday, I bought Life Extension, Tart Cherry
Extract capsules. (the label says that it supports muscles and exercise
recovery). I took two capsules, one with lunch, one with dinner. Since I
have arthritis in my right hip, this was another experiment on how to help
myself. The experiment backfired. In the evening I developed a very intense
redness and itching on both tights. When I went to bed my legs became
restless. I took (as another experiment) Wobenzym N, 4 tablets. This
eliminated the restlessness and I fell asleep immediately. Several hours
later, when I woke up, I took again 4 tablets of Wobenzym N. I slept
soundly and I am feeling rested this morning. The redness of the rush has
diminished.
I would appreciate it very much if you could explain to me these reactions
from the viewpoint of Chinese medicine.

It sounds like a much more mundane explanation of having an allergic reaction to the cherry extract. Eating natural raw cherries is not the same to your body as ingesting chemically processed concentrated extract. From the viewpoint of Chinese medicine an allergic reaction is usually a manifestation of damp heat or toxic heat.
