Ointments Made with Traditional Chinese Herbs for Eczema Relief

Last Updated on

By Diana Hermann (bio below)

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCM) is the most comprehensive and well-organized system of herbal medicine known to humankind.  It has developed from thousands of years of observing and recording the medicinal use of thousands of natural substances to improve human health.  This ancient system of herbal medicine continues to evolve in our modern world.

Using Chinese Herbs for Eczema

Herbs for Zi ZaiEach of our EczeHerbal™ ointments contain 6 to 7 individual herbs that are excellent for use in eczema, both internally and topically.  In TCM, when we compose a formula, we choose herbs that address our underlying TCM diagnosis for the condition being treated, as well as herbs that directly alleviate symptoms.  Typically, I believe simpler is better when it comes to formulating topical products and so I chose to use herbs that have multiple uses.  For example, Ku Shen (Radix Sophorae Flavascentis) not only Clears Heat (reduces inflammation) and Dries Damp (dries exudate), but it is known for its ability to reduce itching.  Studies have shown that Ku Shen has antimicrobial action against the Toxin Staphylococcus aureus (the bacteria commonly found to be overly proliferate in eczema lesions).  What a perfect herb for eczema! But Ku Shen alone is not enough to address all of the energetically imbalances involved in eczema, so we support its function by combining it with additional herbs to address the Toxins (Zi Hua Di Ding/viola and Bai Xian Pi/dictamnus) and herbs to further Dry Dampness (Huang Bai/phellodendron root and Huang Qin/scutellaria root).  While each herb in each of the formulas is useful in its own way, the synergistic combination of all the herbs in the formula working together are more energetically effective than any one herb alone.

 

Our Herb and Ingredient Sources

Herbs for Zi ZaiWe hand craft all of our products ourselves in very small batches so that we maintain the highest level of quality.  We do not outsource any part of the manufacturing process and every product is made from scratch with only the finest ingredients.

The official Traditional Chinese Herbal Pharmacopoeia lists the medicinal properties of many natural substances including plants, animals and minerals.  Zi Zai Dermatology chooses to use only plant and mineral substances in the making of our products.  We never use any herb derived from species of flora or fauna that is considered endangered.  We never use any substance that has been shown to be poisonous or harmful to human health.  We purchase our raw herbs from two different U.S. companies: NuHerbs and MaywayEach of these companies source the raw herbs from their indigenous regions and they examine all herbs to ensure correct species identification.  Furthermore, each of these companies does in-house and third-party laboratory testing of herbs to check for bacteria, pesticides and heavy metals.  Herbs are processed in GMP-certified facilities.

The carrier oils and other ingredients used to craft Zi Zai Dermatology products are sourced from three different U.S. companies that have strict quality guidelines.  Whenever possible we purchase only raw materials that are Fair Trade Certified and/or USDA Certified Organic.  The pure honey and unfiltered beeswax we use comes directly from a responsible beekeeper here in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Safety of Our Herbal Ointments

Zi Zai Cruelty Free LogoZi Zai Dermatology’s EczeHerbal™ line of herbal ointments are safe for topical use on adults, children, babies and even pets.  It is important to us at Zi Zai that our ointments are non-toxic if ingested because it is impossible to keep young kids and infants from putting their hands in their mouths; and  unless you place an Elizabethan collar on your pet, they will end up licking some ointment off.  So rest assured, if our EczeHerbal™ ointments end up on the inside of your child or pet, there is no need to worry.  The ointments are made from food grade organic extra virgin olive oil, Chinese herbs that are safe for internal consumption, and beeswax (which is non-toxic). We do not add any artificial dyes or fragrances to any of our products. And because all of the ingredients used in our products have been safely used by humans (and even animals) for many many years, there is no need for us to safety test our products on animals.

Why We Offer Three Different Ointment Formulas

EczeHerbal OintmentsI am a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  When a patient comes to me for treatment of eczema, I must first diagnose the individual based upon the principles of TCM theory.  Proper differentiation is the key to effective treatment. Once I have differentiated their condition according to TCM, then I can formulate their treatment plan, including an internal herbal formula as well as any topical treatments that may be helpful.  Since every patient is a unique individual and eczema can manifest in several different ways (even at different times in the same person), every internal herbal formula I prepare is unique and custom-designed for that patient.  Of course, making a custom topical ointment for every eczema patient is not very practical.  But one single ointment for every eczema patient isn’t very effective either.  So I decided to take the top 3 most common TCM Differential Patterns for eczema and I formulated an ointment for each of them.  Again, proper differentiation is the key to effective treatment, and that is why Zi Zai offers more than one ointment for eczema.  Find and use the ointment that matches your skin best.

Before I can describe our 3 eczema ointments, I need to give you a very simplified summary of the terms we use when describing the possible patterns of energetic imbalance in TCM dermatology.  When we say a skin condition has “Heat”, that typically translates to redness and inflammation. Sometimes Heat can be quite severe and it will get deeper into the body, so we say this is “Heat in the Blood”.  When we use the term “Damp” or “Dampness”, it usually refers to skin conditions that have weepy lesions, fluid-filled blisters, or things that ooze. In contrast to Dampness, we can also have “Dryness” which develops when the moistening and cooling factor of the body (“Yin”) is insufficient or becomes damaged. When a skin rash itches, we describe that condition as having “Wind” (because it moves around and tickles the surface).  And finally, the TCM term “Toxins” or “Fire Toxins” can mean several things but typically refers to abscesses, ulcerations or skin lesions that contain pus or are infected with bacteria or virus.

EczeHerbal 1EczeHerbal™ 1 – Oozing Eczema Treatment: This ointment is specially formulated according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pattern known as Damp Heat (with Fire Toxins and Wind). It is designed for acute eczema that appears abruptly or is growing in size or number of lesions. This manifestation of eczema typically has more exudate (oozing) than you might see in more stable phases of eczema. Lesions can be swollen, red and itchy and crust may form. This phase of eczema is typically seen in infants and children. From the perspective of TCM, the herbs in this ointment Clear Heat, Dry Damp, Eliminate Wind and Resolve Toxins.  EczeHerbal™ 1 is more appropriate for cases where Dampness predominates over Heat.*

 

EczeHerbal 2EczeHerbal™ 2 – Itchy Eczema Treatment: This eczema ointment is specially formulated according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pattern known as Heat in the Blood (with Fire Toxins and Wind).  All variations of eczema will have some degree of redness and itching.  But this ointment is most appropriate for cases where redness, dryness (flaking) and itching are more predominant than oozing.  This phase of eczema is typically seen in infants and children or during acute exacerbation of the condition in adults. From the perspective of TCM, the herbs in this ointment Clear Heat, Cool Blood, Dry Damp, Eliminate Wind and Resolve Toxins.  To compare, if your eczema has much oozing or blisters, then EczeHerbal™ 1 formula would be a better choice for you.*

 

EczeHerbal 3EczeHerbal™ 3 – Dry Eczema Treatment: This ointment is specially formulated according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pattern known as Blood Dryness (with the presence of some Fire Toxins and Wind). It is specifically designed for chronic eczema where dryness and scaling are more predominant than either Heat or Dampness (compared to the other EczeHerbal™ formulas). Lesions are usually paler red or pink. Thickening of the skin may also be present where scratching has occurred. This phase of eczema is typically seen in teenagers and adults. From the perspective of TCM, the herbs in this ointment Enrich Yin and Nourish Blood (to moisten the skin), Dry Damp, Eliminate Wind and Resolve Toxins.  If your eczema oozes or is weeping, do not choose this formula; instead choose EczeHerbal™ 1 formula.  If your eczema does not ooze but is very red, and there is no thickening of the skin, then EczeHerbal™ 2 would be the best option for you.*

    Wow, I’m going to have to try #1! Impressed.

    • Jennifer on March 13, 2013 at 9:57 am

      Thanks! I’m totally impressed with this company as well. Let me know how you like it.

  2. Meg, Happy Kids, Inc (@happykidsinc) on March 13, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    So happy to stumble upon this blog this morning! I prefer to use homeopathic ointments for my daughter’s eczema flare-ups. I am definitely going to check these out.

    • Jennifer on March 13, 2013 at 8:37 pm

      Hi Meg – We just started carrying those ointments. I also have an AMAZING homeopathic cream that works wonders. Which homeopathic ointment do you use? And I’m happy you stumbled across the blog too 🙂 Jennifer

  3. Lisa Marie on May 5, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Hi there!
    It looks like #3 might be good for me…55yrs. old and dry, flakey eczema on my hands and chin and sometimes on my neck in a few spots…weird. Had some chemo treatments a few years ago and this developed. Eat organic, mostly raw with juices and smoothies and a large organic salad at dinner. What is the homeopathic cream you mentioned? Would love to know! I believe I’m still detoxing the 4 out of 16 treatments I agreed to. Did not take any meds, not steroids, no anti-nausea and felt great! Still do, except for this annoying and bothersome skin issue. Any help would be deeply appreciated! Thank you! Lisa

    • Jennifer on May 6, 2013 at 9:34 pm

      Hi Lisa –

      I wonder if some homeopathy or acupuncture could help you flush out the last bit of toxins left in your body. As you’re completely right I’m sure – if the eczema started after the treatments, makes sense it’s related. The homeopathic cream is the Calendulis Cream, it’s the most popular cream at the store and one of the products we use on my son as well. Please let me know if you have any other questions! I’m glad to help. You can always email me directly as well: jennifer@eczemacompany.com

  4. Ruth C on July 11, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Hello!

    I have had chronic itchy eczema all my life. Right now, I am in the middle of a flare. I’d like to go off topical steroids. I’ve never taken injections or oral prednisone. My eczema is characterized by heat/dryness/flaking and intense itching at night. Which product would you recommend?

    Thank you!

    • Jennifer on July 11, 2013 at 7:56 pm

      Hi Ruth –

      I would recommend trying EczeHerbal #2 in the small 1oz size to see if it works. I’d also recommend trying the Calendulis Cream in a small 1oz size, it’s been great for those trying to get away from cortisone.

      Please let me know if I can help in any other way!

    Hi… I have ringworm on my scalp which makes my head bald, am worried about it. Kindly pass down your email address so that I can share my pictures and suggest me the medicines if am taking wrong one.

    Thank you

    • Jennifer on September 18, 2013 at 12:52 pm

      Hi Kumar – I’m afraid I don’t know anything about ring worm. I wish I could help you, but I’m sure there are very specific oral medications you’ll need to get rid of them. I wish you the best of luck! Jennifer

  7. Christine on September 23, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    Hello! I’ve had eczema my whole life, but never on my face. It was actually at its best until I had a facial and three days later my entire face and neck were swollen, red, weeping, and crusted over. I took topical steroids as well as oral and it went away but shortly came back three days later. The dermatologist said it was nummular eczema on my face. Right now, it doesn’t itch but is red and looks shiny at this point. Last time this happened it started oozing and crusted over yellow. Do you think one of these creams will work? And anything else I can do? I am on an elimination diet as we speak trying to figure out if I can control it with diet as well. Thank you!

    • Christine on September 23, 2013 at 11:55 pm

      Jennifer – I hope you don’t mind, but I am emailing you pictures of my skin. Thank you sooo much excited to try some products!!

      • Jennifer on September 25, 2013 at 9:23 am

        Great! I look forward to your email!

    • Jennifer on September 25, 2013 at 9:23 am

      Hi Christine – I’m so sorry to hear about this reaction! It sounds like something they used during your facial really damaged your skin. I’d get in touch with the company and find out every single ingredient in every product they used. And I’d definitely let them know about your reaction. I’d recommend trying the Calendulis Cream and maybe the Manuka Honey Skin Cream. Jennifer

      • Jennifer on September 25, 2013 at 9:24 am

        The EczeHerbal ointments can be nice as well and can be very helpful. You just need to find the right formula for your situation.

  8. Rukesh Kandasamy on November 18, 2013 at 10:32 am

    Hi Jennifer,

    I have 2 kids aged 3 and 1plus. Both have recently started flaring up with rashes and docs have told it’s ezcema. We have recently moved to a new home and it is is suspected the allergens are from the new furnitures and wooden fixtures/wardrobes.

    Based on their skin rash I am pretty sure they would need a eczeherbal 2 ointment. I would also like to forward you pics so that you can help me confirm.

    By the way, I am from Malaysia. Do you ship here and how fast would I be able to get my hands on it?

    • Jennifer on November 19, 2013 at 1:59 pm

      Hi Rukesh – Yes, certainly, please send me the photos and I can try to help you find which one may be the best option. jennifer@eczemacompany.com We do ship to Malaysia, but it takes 10-20 business days. Thanks! I look forward to your email. Jennifer

  9. kitty on November 26, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Hi, do you ship to Singapore? I’m Keen in trying.

    • Jennifer on November 26, 2013 at 1:41 pm

      Hi Kitty – yes, we do! It’s shipped by weight. Usually you can get 1-2 skin care products for the lowest amount. Please email me if you have any specific questions. I’ll be happy to help! Jennifer@eczemacompany.com Thanks!

I am very anxious, please advise me. Thank you

    • Jennifer on December 17, 2013 at 2:39 pm

      Hi Shahdia – I’d love to help, but please know I’m not a doctor. What exactly are you looking for? You can email me if it’s easier. jennifer@eczemacompany.com Thanks!

      Hi Venkit – I would love to offer your some advice based on personal experience and from the experiences of others, but I am not a medical professional. Please email me and I will be happy to share with you some things that worked for our family. Diet usually plays a big part into the role of inflammation, eczema, allergies, and asthma. Thanks!

  13. Hyun on June 4, 2014 at 11:20 am

    Wow I am incredibly happy I found this. I have been strugglingwith chronic eczema my entire life. I was told it would go away when I was 16-20 but in fact, it has since been worse. I often wear long sleeves to hide it. When I sit in the sun my skin begins to clear. It’s severe itching, thick skin patches, dry, light pink other than when it’s wet, and it exists everywhere. Scalp, face, neck, arms, hands, back, stomach, legs, feet. I have not done a steroid treatment of any kind in years but almost tempted to go back, it is that bad. I’d like to know what you recommend.

    • Jennifer on June 4, 2014 at 9:56 pm

      Hi Hyun – I’m so sorry to hear that you’re suffering. You may find relief with #2 or #3 of the EczeHerbal Ointments, which are mentioned in this post. They are great! You should look into wet wrap therapy as well. It is very beneficial for the type of eczema you’re describing. While it’s not a long term solution, it can really help heal the skin quickly to provide fast relief.

  14. Hema on June 5, 2014 at 7:48 am

    Hi, my name is Hema. i have a chronic eczema whole over the body,its thick dry skin patches. It itches during the hot weather n i have a bad dandruff and i think its due to the dandruff flakes. i have been having this skin problem for more then 10yrs n there is no cures.. pls help
    Do let me know the price in MYR (Malaysia)

    • Jennifer on June 5, 2014 at 4:03 pm

      Hi Hema – It sounds like you could benefit from EczeHerbal #3 or maybe the Super Dry Skin Soother. Also, have you considered dietary changes? Many times food can cause inflammation in the body resulting in long term eczema like this. Jennifer

      • Hema on June 5, 2014 at 11:36 pm

        yes, i dont take spicy and oily foods even seafoods too. can i know how to purchase this product n hw much is it

        • Jennifer on June 17, 2014 at 11:06 am

          Hi Hema – You can find the EczeHerbal Ointment here – there are two sizes. One is $19.95 and the larger is $29.95. I recommend trying the smaller size first to make sure it works well for you. Jennifer

  15. Sheri Luke on June 15, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    Hi there. My 6 year old son has had eczema since birth. I believe he would use #2 since his skin gets very dry, esp when it’s humid and hot right now (we live in Hawaii). He is constantly scratching his scalp as well. We’ve tried everything. I plan to order #2 but what can be done about his itchy scalp? thanks!

    • Jennifer on June 17, 2014 at 10:23 am

      Hi Sheri – Have you considered that food could be triggering his itchy scalp? Not necessarily an allergen, but more of a sensitivity. Or possibly seasonal allergies? Living in Hawaii I’m guessing there really is no such thing as seasonal allergies, but constant pollen allergies could be a problem. Do you have any pets at home? Perhaps mold since you live in a very humid climate. These would be the first things I’d consider. On the scalp it’s difficult to treat because of all the hair. I’d definitely move to a very natural shampoo and even just a simple bar soap with a few, easy to understand ingredients would be best. This one can be used as a shampoo and is most effective on shorter hair.

      • Neza62 on July 3, 2014 at 5:08 pm

        Hi, I’ve always had eczema but its gradually gotten worse the last few years. The palms of my hands would get extremely itchy and the inevitable scratching creates a not so pretty sight.
        Now I have a flare up, concentrated mostly from the knees down to my feet. It gets so itchy it’s impossible not to scratch who just leaves the skin looking like a war zone.
        I also have it on my arms.
        I’ve been on chlobetasol for years and worried about the long term consequences of it.
        I’ve tried every over the counter cream and ointment I can find without success.
        Is there any way to stop the trigger leading to itching and inevitable scratching?
        Thanks

        • Jennifer on July 11, 2014 at 11:04 am

          Hi there – it sounds like you my be dealing with food sensitivities. Have you looked into cutting out some common triggers like dairy and gluten to start?

  16. Sofia Yusoh on July 22, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    Hi, is it possible for me to get the ointment #1 in Malaysia?

  17. Karen on August 20, 2014 at 12:43 am

    Hi,

    I’m wondering what the ingredients are in eczema option 1 (damp) I’m just concerned that I might be allergic to it. I’m allergic to ginger which a lot of ppl use as treatment. Also how to purchase I live in canada.

    Thanks

    • Jennifer on August 22, 2014 at 4:56 pm

      Hi Karen –

      Take a look at the list of ingredients in the description for the formula 1. I don’t believe ginger is used. We ship to Canada – flat rate of $10. Thanks! Jennifer

  18. Mr Ronald Paraman on August 31, 2014 at 8:17 am

    We would like to try a sample of this for our 2 year old grandaughter. We are in the UK and can pay by BACS or just online, Can you ship to the UK?

    • Jennifer on August 31, 2014 at 10:26 am

      Hi Ronald – Yes, we do ship to the UK. You’ll see the option during the check out process. For one small ointment the shipping should cost around $12. Thank you. I hope you find the ointment as beneficial as so many others have. It’s a great product. Jennifer

  19. Jocel on September 13, 2014 at 3:17 am

    Hi. Do you ship in the philippines?

    • Jennifer on September 15, 2014 at 10:53 am

      Hi Jocel – Yes we do!

  20. Lekmary on September 16, 2014 at 8:59 am

    Hi Jennifer, does ointment clear the redness and stop the itch?

    How much is the shipment cost to Malaysia and how long does it take? Is your price quoted in USD?

    • Jennifer Roberge on September 16, 2014 at 9:08 am

      Hi Lekmary – Yes, it certainly can, if you select the right one for your skin type. But like all products, it doesn’t work for every one. But it’s very helpful for many, so you should give it a try. We do ship to Malaysia and for one ointment it should be $12. Prices are in CAD. Thank you! Jennifer

  21. Lorie Holland on September 19, 2014 at 4:44 am

    It looks promising! I would normally use just over-the-counter medicated lotions/creams for eczema but not really good for cold weather. Thank you for sharing.

    • Jennifer Roberge on September 19, 2014 at 5:48 pm

      If you like natural products, its an excellent one to try.

  22. Tiana Killsnight on September 24, 2014 at 3:28 pm

    I have tried everything and I really hated that some doctors tried recommending harsh hormone creams or a seris of pills to take. And I didn’t take them. They would ruin my face and I had eczema all my life and I feel I want to look for something natural and effective and not so harsh. So I am thrilled on learning more about these products and hope to have them in my life very soon ?

    • Jennifer Roberge on September 25, 2014 at 12:08 pm

      Hi Tiana – I completely understand. We went down the same path, but we’re so happy where we are now. Let me know if I can help in any way! Jennifer

    Hi Jennifer, how long is the shipping to singapore?

  24. londiwe on January 3, 2015 at 9:25 am

    hi I’ve been suffering from eczema for over 5 years now,its on my legs and I can’t even expose my leg I always wearing pants. my skin is very dry, itching and has red blister it’s awful. nothing had ever help I wish I could get something( medication) that I can drink so that this virus/ bacteria would be killed inside and a cream to apply on my legs. I need help I am south Africa. please also give me prices

    • Jennifer Roberge on January 6, 2015 at 10:12 am

      Hi Londiwe – I’m so sorry to hear how much you’re suffering. You may find some relief with wet wrapping, have you tried this? If you think you have a bacteria or yeast overgrowth that is contributing to your eczema, you may want to meet with a holistic nutritionist or naturopath on the best course of treatment. But definitely adding high quality fish oil and a dairy/soy/gluten free probiotic should help your strengthen your gut health. In terms of creams, I’d recommend something from this category for itchy, dry, red eczema. We do ship to South Africa and it’s based on weight, but the cost is usually $12-22 per package. I hope this helps! Jennifer

  25. Elise on March 11, 2015 at 1:59 pm

    Hi. my son who is 14 months now has been having eczema since 8 months. He keeps scratching his body and does not sleep at night. The eczema leaves his skin very dry and it is prominent in his arms and legs. We have being to the doctors severally and they keep prescribing different steroid creams which only helps for a short while and then the eczema comes back again.

    My son,now 30, had eczena as a baby. I stopped all cow dairy and switched to goat as he had no eczema when . End of eczema.
    Just wonder how may eczema sufferers have tried eliminating dairy as a first step. Very inexpensive experiment.
    That’s all dairy, yogurt, cheese etc for one week.

      Hi Vera – Great suggestion! Yes, I think eliminating dairy can be so helpful for many with eczema since its one of the top allergens. We mention it in our elimination diet post.

    Can a baby get a virus from the dads flakey dry skin that is everywhere? Dry died skin all over the house and car. The child is walking drops toy, dry skin gets on the toy, child puts in mouth. Now her toy has dry skin on it. Germs causes a virus. What are the chances this happening?

    • Jennifer Roberge on August 5, 2016 at 2:23 pm

      I think it is very unlikely, but I supposed there is a small chance.

    Hi Jennifer, in the past I was able to use a TCM containing sophora with excellent results. It has been out of stock for almost a year, so I’m looking to replace it. My problem is I cant use olive oil. There is a connection with mellazia/yeast and olive oil makes it worse. Would you be able to put your formula in another base for me? Thank you

  35. Jackie on November 16, 2016 at 9:26 pm

    Hi, I have a two years old son, he has been suffering from eczema on his face, since he was three months old . We have tried all the creams from the Doctor. I would like to try your Eczeherbal. Do you have a trial pack?

  36. Latifa on May 4, 2017 at 4:33 am
