In recent years, I have applied acupuncture to treat 7 patients (14 eyes) with acute conjunctivitis, the points selection included Jingming (BL1), Tongziliao (GB1), Hegu (LI4) Yuan-Source Point given by acupuncture and ear apex by bleeding, most patients felt improvement 1 to 2 days after needing and recovered 2 to 3 days. All of cases were cured.
Typical case report:
Case 2: male, 4 years old. He got acute conjunctivitis on August, there were pain and redness of eyes, swollen eyelids, ulcerous secretion, aversion to light, tears, diagnosis was acute conjunctivitis. I needles GB1, BL1, LI4 with 20 minutes of needle retaining. Patient became quiet and pain was relieved after I took needles out. On the second day, I repeated same points and added bleeding on ear apex. On the third day, disease was cured.
