Acupuncture/Hand point

Question
Aloha,

I have a sore point on the back of my right hand at the top of the thumb joint where it descends to the index finger. What is this point related to.

Also, I have frequent episodes of sniffling, lots of mucus in nose. Can this be modified?

Thanks for your time on this,

Jonathan

Answer
Hi Jonathan,
It sounds like you could be describing lu5. You can look it up on google. Maybe it could be the point ling gu. You should cut out dairy from your diet. Your mucous will clear up. But acupuncture could help you too. Hope this helps.
