Long Dan Xie Gan Tang

1) Livergallbladder replete heat harassing above or 2) damp heat pouring downward manifesting as acute conjunctivitis, uveitis, corneal ulcers, acute glaucoma, central retinitis, acute otitis media, boils and carbuncles in the vestibular and external auditory canal, nasal furuncles, hypertension, acute icteric hepatitis, acute cholecystitis, herpes zoster, herpes genitalia, cold sores, acute pyelonephritis, acute cystitis, urethritis, acute pelvic inflammation, acute prostatitis, orchitis, epididymitis, vaginitis, abnormal vaginal discharge, vaginal itching, lymphadenitis of the groin, hyperthyroidism, migraine headache, eczema in general and scrotal eczema in particular, and intercostal neuralgia

Within this formula, Long Dan Cao (Radix Gentianae) is greatly bitter and greatly cold. It is the sovereign medicinal in this formula for both draining fire and eliminating dampness. It drains replete livergallbladder fire from the upper body, while it also precipitates and clears damp heat from the lower body. Huang Qin (Radix Scutellariae) and Zhi Zi (Fructus Gardeniae) are the ministers within this formula. They also have the functions of draining fire with bitterness and cold and are combined with Long Dan Cao (Radix Gentianae) for that purpose. Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis), Mu Tong (Caulis Akebiae), and Che Qian Zi (Semen Plantaginis) clear heat and disinhibit dampness. Therefore, they assist in eliminating damp heat via the urinary tract. Because the liver stores the blood and heat within the liver channel can easily damage yin and blood, at the same time as using bitter cold ingredients to dry dampness, Sheng Di (uncooked Radix Rehmanniae) and Dang Gui Wei (Extremitas Radicis Angelicae Sinensis) are used as assistants to enrich yin and nourish the blood. Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) regulates and harmonizes all the other medicinals. Therefore, within this formula there is supplementation within drainage and enrichment within disinhibition. This assists the downbearing of fire and the clearing of heat and the separation of clear from damp turbidity.
