Acne, known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as pimples, is a common disease in clinical dermatology. Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner believes the disease occurrence is internal cause. The improper diet and the invasion of exogenous pathogens are the conditions that cause the disease. If the damp heat and blood stasis, it will make the course of disease lingering and aggravating. In clinical practice, the lung meridian wind-heat, gastrointestinal damp-heat, phlegm-dampness stasis are common types. Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment is usually based on the clinical symptoms of patients with the methods of dispelling wind and clearing heat, cooling blood and detoxification, removing dampness and phlegm, and promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis.
Analyzing the situation of the patient, patient is young and likes to eat spicy food in daily diet, and often stays up late. Addiction to spicy food is easy to generate heat, leading to gastrointestinal heat accumulation, while staying up late is easy to secretly waste blood, aggravate blood dryness and heat. Therefore, in terms of physical fitness, patients should have gastrointestinal heat accumulation and excessive blood heat. Gastrointestinal heat accumulates and consumes yin and fluid, so it is prone to dry mouth and dry stools, while gastrointestinal heat accumulates on the face through the meridian, and it develops as acne. From the tongue image, the patient’s crimson tongue that is deeper than the ordinary red tongue is a manifestation of the blood heat. However, due to blood heat urging blood to go rashly, menstruation often occurs early. Therefore, for the treatment of facial acne in this patient, the method of clearing away heat, detoxifying and cooling blood can be selected.
Traditional Chinese Medicine decoctions can also be used. For example, 15 grams of Chinese Medicine Forsythia Suspensa, 15 grams of Dried Dandelion, 15 grams of Radix Rehmanniae, 15 grams of Paeonia Suffruticosa Andr., 20 grams of Radix Salviae Motiorrhizae, 10 grams of Fritillaria Cirrhosa, and 10 grams of Licorice. Decocted in water, consume one dose per day to clear away heat, cool blood, detoxify and eliminate acne.
