Skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, and vitilego are difficult to treat well with Western Medicine. Hives and urticaria can be treated well with drugs, but only to the extent that symptoms are relieved. In Western Medicine, the true cause of such disorders remains somewhat murky. Consequently, treatments are usually in the form of topical medicine, which is not adequate to remove the cause of the problem. There are pharmaceutical drugs which treat these diseases systemically but there are many unwanted side effects. This makes the overall treatment much more difficult.
