I have not been taking these pills for long enough time to honestly evaluate. I have a particularly wicked two year long outbreak of nummular eczema, and I am trying everything. My dermatologist tells me that it will run its course in a few years with no expected help from injections or creams (true so far). The lesions are plentiful and nearly full legs/arms/body, weepy, scabrous, tiny, large and movement-limiting. The worst part is the itch, acute and migrating with new outbreaks. Sleep is never sustained and in short supply. Anyone who may suggest a TCM treatment or reliable practitioner is welcome to inform me through BCM. And I have a suggestion about the rating system: IN ADDITION TO THE STARS, INCLUDE A SYMBOL OR SOME OPTION TO INDICATE "too soon to evaluate" WITH NOTICE TO CHECK LATER. THIS WILL PORTRAY MORE ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS AND YOURSELVES. Believe me, if I am given time to allow these pills to work, I can give you my best appraisal, pro or con.
