Alternative medicine

By Mayo Clinic Staff

More study is needed, but some evidence supports the following alternative medicine approaches for providing relief of symptoms:

  • Diet restrictions, such as eliminating yeast, food additives and other things that may cause the skin reaction (allergens)
  • Supplements, such as vitamins B-12, C and D, fish oil, and quercetin
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Acupuncture, sometimes with an herbal wash of burdock
