Autumn skin itching starts from protecting the lungs
In the fall, due to the temperature drop and the wind, the climate becomes dry, and many people will feel the skin thicker and even itching.
But to solve such problems, it is not enough to smear the skin by applying this coating. The “external disease” must also be “internal treatment”, and the skin’s problems must be adjusted by raising the lungs.
Fu Yingjie, a professor at Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said in an interview with the reporter of “Life Times” that traditional Chinese medicine theory believes that the main fur of the lungs, through the role of publicity, will spread the body and the blood and body fluids to warm the skin,Maintain normal functions.
If the skin appears rough, tearing and other symptoms, most of which are caused by lack of qi or qi and blood, that is, the function of the lungs is not functioning properly, then the above symptoms appear.
To solve the itching of autumn skin, you can start from the dysfunction of the lungs, but also distinguish the type of disease.
Generally can be divided into three categories, one is wind-heat type, caused by cold fever, the virus destroys the tissue, causing itchy skin; the second is damp heat type, such as eating cold food, causing damp heat, causing leg itching, can use some heat 祛Rheumatoid drugs; Third, the skin is blocked, causing the fluid to leak out, accumulating moisture and causing itching.
Fu Yingjie said that in addition to drinking plenty of water in the fall, it is advisable to drink more porridge, soy milk, eat more radish, lotus root, lotus root, pear, honey and other lungs, nourishing yin and dry food, especially pears.Thirsty, cough and phlegm, clearing heat and reducing fire, nourishing blood and muscle, moistening lungs and so on.
Try to eat less or not eat chili, onion, ginger, garlic, pepper and other hot items, eat less fried, fatty food, in order to prevent the symptoms of autumn dryness.
If you have skin itching symptoms, you can use cilantro soaked wine to quickly relieve itching.
Fu Yingjie’s last expert, conditioning the lungs can alleviate the symptoms of dry itchy skin, but the specific cause of dry itching of the skin is very complicated. It should be diagnosed at the same time to find out the cause and symptomatic medication, so as to treat both the symptoms and the root causes.
