Damp heat 濕熱 (in English and Chinese 中英文)
Damp-heat is a term used in traditional Chinese medicine referring to symptoms of viral, bacterial or yeast infections, especially in the urinary tracts, bowels, gall bladders, vaginal and liver area. The term damp heat does not refer to dampness and heat. It is use as a single term damp-heat. It has nothing to do with dampness or heat. Most patients show slippery, thin and weak pulse, yellow urine, tongue with yellow coating or white coated tongue.
Although damp heat is a term referring to infection, a classical literature , "Diagnostics of Damp Heat" by Xue Sheng-bai classifies the infection condition into "dampness heavy" or "heat heavy". In dampness-heavy condition the tongue is coated with white oily substance while in heat-heavy condition the tongue is coated with yellow or thick oily or brown substance.
Bacterial infection often shows yellow coating on the tongue which denotes that the infection has been going on. The white coatings that can be washed away often are caused by Candida (yeast) infection. If there is a fever the pulse rate is higher. Usually every degree increase in body temperature will increase 10 counts of heart rate.
濕熱並不是指濕與熱。濕熱是指感染，如病毒，细菌 或霉菌感染，尤其是尿道，大腸，胆囊，陰道與肝臟部位。但按辨證法中有分濕重或熱重現象。若 濕重者，苔 多白腻或厚白腻；熱重者，苔多黄腻或厚黄濁腻，或黄 褐如 咖啡色。薛生白《濕熱條辨》根據“舌 根白， 舌尖紅”，認為濕漸漸化熱而餘濕猶滞；“舌白”、“舌遍體白”，為濕濁 極盛 之象，黃苔之形成可 能是因為細菌感染已經有一段時日。黄苔一般是與细菌戰鬪後死亡的白血球壓積的尸體。白苔(指 能洗脫的白苔)之 形成 可能是念珠球菌之感染。
