Source: Clinical Otolaryngology 35(1):6-12.
Abstract: The study was conducted to assess the effectives and safety of ear-acupuncture or ear-acupressure for treatment of allergic rhinitis. The randomised controlled trials and quasi-randomised controlled trials were reviewed. The results from the studies revealed that the ear-acupressure is more effective than herbal medicine and similar to body acupuncture and antihistamine, for short term, however more effective than antihistamine in long term.
