Although this was the first English language Chinese dermatology text, it is still a very useful addition to any clinician’s library. This is a completely revised and improved second edition.
In Western medicine, dermatology is one of the most difficult specialties. However, Chinese medicine treats even the most recalcitrant skin diseases relatively well and without side effects. A Handbook of Traditional Chinese Dermatology was the first Chinese medical dermatology book translated into English. After 10 years, it is still a useful addition to every clinician’s library. Succinct and easy to use, this book contains many effective formulas for both internal administration and external application. This book will help all Chinese medical practitioners treat their dermatological patients more knowledgeably.
This clinical manual systematically covers the main concepts of Chinese pathophysiology in dermatology. Its treatment section covers differential diagnosis, therapeutic principles, and internal and external treatment plans for 90 dermatological conditions ranging from warts, scars, and acne to psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo.
