"Itch (pruritis) is a common manifestation of eczema (atopic dermatitis), hives (urticaria), acne, psoriasis, lichen sclerosus, fungal infection (tinea), lichen planus, and other skin conditions.
A systematic review and meta-analysis (1) concluded acupuncture successfully reduces the intensity of itch. Researchers have identified potential explanations for this positive effect:
The kappa opioid receptor is active throughout the central nervous system. When activated by electroacupuncture, it has a distinct anti-itch effect.
Acupuncture is associated with a reduction in putamen response, indicating acupuncture modulates the area of the brain responsible for motivation and habitual behavior."
