Ointment is a type of traditional Chinese medicine that the patient can take in the form of an ointment through a reasonable formula of Chinese medicinal materials.
It takes a long time to take medicine for sub-health conditioning and chronic disease treatment. Many people gave up traditional Chinese medicine treatment because of the trouble of going to the hospital, the exhaustion of decoction, and the pain of taking medicine. The ointment just made up for the shortcomings of traditional Chinese medicine. Qiongyu Ointment uses ginseng, rehmannia glutinosa, white tuckahoe and white honey to nourish yin and nourish lungs, replenish qi and spleen, cure lung yin loss, dry cough due to fatigue, dry throat, hemoptysis, muscle wasting, shortness of breath and fatigue. Guilu Erxian Ointment uses antlers, tortoise shells, medlar, ginseng to replenish the essence and marrow, cure the depletion of essence, dream ejaculation, nocturnal emission, thinness and less qi, unclear eyesight Another example is Ginseng Tonic Cream, Rong Ginseng Cream, Tiepi Fengdou Extract, and Saffron Tiepi Fengdou Paste, all of which are ready-made creams with good taste and are quite popular.
The individualized ointment, which has been popular in recent years, has advantages due to the meticulous combination of prescription drugs, which makes the ointment have a better taste. After being washed, it will emit a thick or light gum fragrance, so that people can accept it. Another advantage is that it is specially cooked by a pharmacist and does not need to be decocted by the sick person. One cream can be taken in one month or even two to three months, which is convenient for the general public.
