Different from other seasons, gastrointestinal colds usually contain dampness and are more manifested in the form of damp heat or cold dampness.
Most people think of Huoxiang Zhengqi Water, but Huoxiang is not always effective. In general, it is still necessary to differentiate between cold and heat in order to deal with it more specifically, which can be roughly divided into the following three types. The first typemainly cold and damp in the middle coke strong>The performance is: fever but relatively cold, runny nose, if there is diarrhea, it will not be particularly smelly, The color will not be very Deep, generally not very violent, mostly watery and foamy. Rubbing the stomach will make you feel comfortable, sweating is more like a cold sweat, if it is accompanied by vomiting, there will be no strong smell, the surrounding area of the stomach is cold, and the urine is clear and long.
