In Traditional Chinese Medicine this specific herbal formulation clears internal inflammation and toxins that cause common skin disorders such as eczema with itching and blistering or exudate.** Itchy skin develops when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to a substance or food that typically causes no problems in most people.
For adults, as a dietary supplement, take 10 pills with warm water twice daily. If taking other medication or supplement, allow at least 2 hours before or after using this product.
In Western Medicine

In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
TCM looks at the exterior and interior of the body as being interconnected. What appears on the skin is a reflection of what is happening inside the body. If the body is not in balance, for any of many possible reasons, then a sickness will occur. TCM believes it’s due to wind, dampness and heat or blood deficiency through factors both outside and inside the body. Outside factors include climate and seasonal changes, environmental pathogens, and allergens. Most commonly involved inside factors are excessive heat and dampness blocking circulation and inhibiting optimal organ function. The itchiness and redness are due to heat, and the oozing and blisters are due to dampness.
Outside factors trigger the condition only when inside foundations are not strong, meaning the internal organs are not balanced. Let’s talk about how our internal organs can get thrown into an imbalance.
Emotional distress (anger, frustration, or revenge) hurts the Liver, creating stagnation and heat, which cause symptoms such as itchiness and dry scaling skin.
Excessive consumption of spicy, cold, or rich foods damage the Spleen, and create dampness, which causes symptoms such as oozing fluids.
Experiencing stress for a prolonged time harms the Heart and Lungs by generating more internal heat which can combine with the heat from emotional distress and dampness from improper food intake, to exacerbate skin conditions, such as eczema.
Eczema can be acute or chronic. Acute is most common in Damp-Heat or Wind-Heat. Chronic eczema can be blood deficiency causing Wind stirring upward with Heat. This herbal formula is for the dampness and suggested with the support of an appropriate diet.
Different individuals may experience different symptoms. The symptoms that may manifest listed below:
- Skin rashes
- Severe itching
- Small bumps may appear and leak fluid if you scratch them
- The rash often forms in the creases of your elbows, knees or fingers.
- Skin in areas where the rash appears may turn lighter or darker, or get thicker
- Recurrent and often evolves into a chronic condition
- Can occur at any age
Diet & Prevention
Eat light balanced and digestible meals and drink plenty of water. It is best to avoid eating uncooked (raw), greasy, spicy foods, chocolate, mango, pineapple, cherry, coconut meat, eggs, and vitamin, fish without scales and fins (shellfish), and /or yang/heat-inducing food. No smoking or drinking alcohol and coffee. Avoid oily and fatty foods which can create Dampness.
Spicy food perpetuates Heat. Alcohol worsens both Heat and Dampness.
