    Hello. My name is Hans and I had nodular prurigo in about two years. Went on treatments for about 2 years. Six months of intensive treatment, 3 times a week. nothing helped. After a year and a half, I was advised to learn to live with it. Impossible, cortisone in cream and ointment, injections, baths, light therapy. Bloody sheets every day. No.

    Made contact with a woman in Texas. She had PN and healed with the help of Chinese medicine.

    I sought out a serious "China Doctor" in Stockholm, Dr. Yang. Were given Chinese herbs to cook tea on. Acupuncture and cupping. After 3 treatments a noticeable improvement. After 10 treatments completely cured.

    Has now been healthy for over 3 years

    Retains a spot of about 1 square centimeter, as "fighting" one time every two months. I think this is quite ok.

    This is my experience. Wish you a recovery.

    Hans. S
