skin. Acne due to a retention of phlegm, dampness and blood stagnation will present acne that is dark red

under pattern condition is and then decide what acu-points to select for stimulation and which herbs to use
to create a customized acupuncture treatment and herbal
remedies (including herbal pills, capsules, tea, herbal
creams and lotions, etc.).
