Vagina Bacterial Infection


By: Joe Hing Kwok Chu    按 此 看 中 文



Symptoms of damp-heat of vagina infection:

Yellowish sticky discharge with foul smell, itchiness in vagina area, burning pain,

dark yellow urine, red tongue with yellow coating, and pulse is slippery and rapid. 

These symptoms of damp heat might suggest bacteria infection.



One of the following formulae can be use:



(1) Name of Formula: long dan xie gan tang  (Source: Yi Zong Jin Jian )


long dan cao 6 g, huang qin 9 g, shan zhi zi 9 g, ze xie 12 g,

mu tong 9 g, che qian zi 9 g, chai hu 6 g, gan cao 6 g, sheng di 9 g.

Boil with water. One prescription a day, made into two servings.

Stop taking when symptoms subside. Do not take it for a long time.


Warning: This formula can be toxic to the kidneys because of the herb mu tong. There are different varieties of mu tong in the  market. Before the Qing dynasty, however, it was not toxic because mu tong was derived from either the plant of  Akebia guinata or the plant Akebia lobata.  Today, ninety five percent of mu tong (guan mu tong 關木通) used in China is from the stem ofAristolochia debilis, a toxic plant usually grown in the northeastern provinces of China, formally called Manchuria. Only rarely in a few localities in China, is mu tong obtained from Akebia guinata or Akebia lobata being used. Many cases of kidney failure have been reported in the China from taking this formula.

Today in China , all manufactured formulae that contain guan mu tong (a ristolochia debilis ) are being banned because of the toxicity to the kidneys. 

Do not use mu tong if you can not find mu tong from the plants Akebia guinata or Akebia lobata.

(2) Name of Formula: ma chi xian tang


ma chi xian 12 g,  cang zhu 10 g, huang bai  10 g.

Boil with water and use as tea.




(3) Name of Formula: bi xie huang bo tang

bi xie12 g, huang bai 12 g.  Boil with water and use as tea.



Formula for washing infected area:

she chuang zi 30 g, ku shen 18 g, bai bu 15 g,  huang bo 15 g, ku fan 15 g.  Boil with water for 15 to 20 minutes. Apply steam over the affected area, then wash with the warm liquid.
