Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To compare the therapeutic effects of pricking blood therapy combined with acupuncture and routine western medicine on herpes zoster.

METHODS

Two hundred and forty cases were randomly divided into 2 groups, 120 cases in each group. The treatment group were treated with acupuncture combined with pricking blood therapy on the point with the most pain, and cupping and surround needling; the control group with external application and oral administration of Aciclovir plaster and Aciclovir tablets, respectively. Their therapeutic effects were compared.

RESULTS

The total effective rate was 92.5% in the treatment group and 55.8% in the control group with a very significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.01). The time of producing killing pain, stopping vesication and scabbing in the treatment group was shorter than that in the control group.
