Hello, I am in the forties and suffer from allergy/sinus/running nose. Got treatment with western medicine but each time the medicine finish, the symptom comes back again. Check a check on the internet and found that accupunture or TCM would be able to help. Is this true? Did you have TCM clinic in Malacca?

Chinese Physician answer:

Hello Raymond,
Thanks for visiting our website.

1.A common cause of nose allergy is weakness in body immune system. Modern drugs can only control your disease but not cure, therefore the symptoms would recur when you stop taking your medicines.

2.You are advised to take some Chinese tonics that can strengthen your body immunity, such as pollen, propolis and Ling Zhi. Ling Zhi has proven good results, you can take Ling Zhi together with Ginseng to strengthen your body immunity, hence reduce recurrence of nose allergy.

3.You can seek consultation and treatment from TCM Health Care and Therapy Sdn Bhd which located inside the Putra Hospital, Malacca.

Dear Dr,

I have been having urticaria from allergy very frequently lately. Usually the urticaria happens at night and early morning.

I have been taking antihistamine Zyrtec everyday but it doesn’t seem to go away. The rashes still appear almost every morning.

Why is it happening and what can I do about? Any chinese medicine I can take? Please help.

Thank you.

Chinese Physician answer:

1.Allergy can due to food, smell or change of temperature. Find out the allergy factors and avoid them will reduce the chance of having urticaria.

2.You can also search help from TCM. Please visit our experts of TCM from China in ‘Tongrentang Medical Hall’ in Bukit Bintang or ‘Sanjiu Medical Hall’ in UE3 complex.

Hi Dr.,

I’m a Chinese male, 46 years old.

I suffer urticaria for the past 6 years. The illness developed when I exposed to hot sun, hot water, or get irrirated (such as embarassed, under pressure etc).

Please advise.


Chinese physician answer:

Hello Lew,

Urticaria can be due to allergy to smell, foods, change of temperature and change of emotion etc. For your case, your skin is allergy to change of temperature and your emotion. Avoid these allergy factors will avoid urticaria.

However, TCM will help you too, you can take HAI YANG BRAND FU YANG capsule (海洋肤痒丸) (available in Hai-O Raya chain store) when urticaria occur. You can also visit to Tongrentang Medical Hall or Hai-O Sanjiu TCM for consultation from experts of TCM from China.

Hi, I have a son who is going 2 years old in June. Recently, he has cold very frequently. According to doctor, his lung and nose is very sensive and prone to allergy.

Would like to see your advice what herbs should be taken to overcome his alergy. Your advice is much appreciated,

thank you

Chinese physician answer:

In the perspective of western medication, your son has low immunity function and from Chinese medication, it is lack of Qi (energy). Your son can consume Yu Ping Feng San“玉屏风散”.
