Male, 20 years old.
He came to see me for neck pain. After the acupuncture treatment, he said he had eczema in his chelidon and they flared up recently. He showed me there were very itchy ,dark, big patches in Right side and smaller one in Left side. No sweat. Normal bowel movement. Yellow urine. I gave him Fang Feng Tong Sheng San 100g in powder, Twice a day. a week later at his next visit, eczema in his elbow has almost disappeared. But he said he had more bowel movement even like dirrhea while he took the herbs.
Dirrhea might be the side effect of Fang Feng Tong Sheng San for some people if there is no problem with bowel movement because of some ingredient in it. Normally we need adjust herbs according to patients’ condition so it will not cause any problem. But for the granule formula, we cannot take some ingredient out. However, I will try to make formula from mix single herbs so can make sure there is no such ingredient in it or give raw herbs which can avoid such a problem.
