What is the difference between wind-cold cold and wind-heat cold?
In recent days, the weather suddenly turned cold, and I caught a cold accidentally. I sneezed with runny nose, and my nose was a little yellow, and I coughed a little. I went to the pharmacy to buy medicine. I heard that colds are also divided into wind-cold and wind-heat. Different colds eat different medicines. I don’t know how to distinguish the two.
Hello, Chinese medicine divides colds into wind-cold colds and wind-heat colds, which are obviously distinguished by symptoms. Wind-cold colds are mainly manifested as fear of cold, stuffy nose, clear nose and sneezing. Generally, sore throat symptoms rarely appear, and cough sputum is mostly white; Wind-heat cold is mainly characterized by fever, sore throat and cough. Sputum is mostly yellow. If you have a yellow nose, sneeze and cough, you can consider taking paracetamol and amantadine tablets, which can relieve fever, headache, sneezing, clear nose, stuffy nose, sore throat, sore limbs and other symptoms caused by common cold and influenza. In addition, you should pay attention to a light diet during a cold, eat more fruits and vegetables and drink more hot water.
The main differences between wind-cold cold and wind-heat cold are as follows: wind-cold cold is caused by the invasion of cold evil, and patients will have symptoms of chills and cold, as well as symptoms such as runny nose, cough and stuffy nose. Wind-heat cold is caused by the invasion of blood, and will have purulent nose, cough and stuffy nose, accompanied by dryness and heat.
Cold due to wind-cold is the evil of feeling wind-cold, Most of them occur in winter, Spring is cold, Fever is mild, aversion to cold is severe, Muscle and joint soreness, Clear nose without sore throat, However, wind-heat cold feels the evil of wind-heat in summer, Severe fever, mild aversion to cold, red and painful throat, yellow nose, yellow urine, etc., both wind-cold and wind-heat colds are viral infections. We should pay attention to rest, drink plenty of water, eat a light diet, avoid spicy and irritating food and raw and cold greasy food, and supplement enough protein and vitamins to promote the improvement of symptoms.
