Observation on therapeutic effect of moxibustion at "heat sensitive points" on perennial allergic rhinitis

, : Observation on therapeutic effect of moxibustion at "heat sensitive points" on perennial allergic rhinitis. Zhongguo Zhen Jiu 28(2): 114-116

To compare therapeutic effects of moxibustion at "heat sensitive points" and western medicine on perennial allergic rhinitis. One hundred and twenty cases were randomly divided into a moxibustion group and a western medicine group, 60 cases in each group. The moxibustion group were treated with moxibustion at "heat sensitive points" on the head-face, abdomen, waist and back, once a day; and the western medicine group with oral administration of Cetirizine Hydrochloride, 10 mg each session, once daily, 10 days constituting one course. The total effective rate and the total effective rate for the cases of over effectiveness 3 months later were 85.0% and 86.3% in the moxibustion group and 63.3% and 50.0% in the western medicine group, respec tively, with significant or very significant difference (P < 0.05, P < 0.01). Moxibustion at "heat sensitive points" is an ideal therapy for perennial allergic rhinitis with low recurrence rate.
