ABSTRACT

Introduction Chronic idiopathic urticaria in patients diagnosed with an unfavorable pattern in Soyangin and Taeumin based on Sasang medicine showed a significant improvement after herbal medicine treatment. Methods The patients had treatment with both herbal medication and antihistamine. We checked the patients' cutaneous manifestation, original symptoms, and the number of antihistamine doses in each visit. We evaluated the medical records retrospectively. Results After one month of treatment, the patients showed cutaneous manifestation relief. Each patient reduced and withdrew antihistamine at four moths and eight months respectively, and the cutaneous manifestation did not recur. We maintained the herbal medicine prescription until the origin symptoms improved. Throughout the subsequent follow-up, the patients showed both urticaria and the original symptoms in good condition without treatment. Discussion Sasang medicine treatment can be an effective treatment for chronic idiopathic urticaria and long-term management is necessary for an unfavorable pattern which can take more than 6 months.
