Lee Dong-won's "Fire and Yuan qi are mutually exclusive" discusses the pathological mechanism of internalYin fire due to the failure of Yuan qi. He proposed the use of sweet warmth to remove heat in the treatment of this type of internal fever, and the representative formula is Buzhong Yiqi Decoction. In skin diseases, patients often do not have symptoms of "fever" but have rashes that are red, swollen, and thickened due to deficiency heat. The "heat" of internal injury fever is not just a simple "fever" disease. Any internal injury fever with heat evidence can be treated with pungent, sweet and warm products to replenish the Yuan qi, so as to achieve the purpose of smooth flow of qi and the elimination ofYin fire. In-depth understanding of the theory of "Fire and Yuan qi are mutually exclusive" and its application in the clinical treatment of skin diseases can improve the clinical efficacy of Chinese medicine in the treatment of skin diseases.
