「燥」也有分涼與溫
入秋後天氣濕度漸降,就算飲食沒有大改變,亦令人容易感到口乾舌燥,是因為秋燥耗損人體津液之故。有人覺得口乾但不渴,然而有人既口乾又口渴,很想喝凍飲,為甚麼?原來秋燥可以細分為「溫燥」和「涼燥」,「溫燥」多見於夏末初秋之時,暑氣未完全消散,溫熱之氣與燥邪結合而成,患者會出現輕微發熱、頭痛、口乾而且口渴、偏好冷飲、唇鼻乾燥、咽喉乾痛、乾咳無痰、心情煩躁等症狀。
「涼燥」多出現於初冬之時,燥邪結合寒氣入侵人體,患者多見怕冷、頭痛鼻塞、口乾而不渴、唇鼻乾燥、咽喉乾涸,乾咳而痰少,痰質清稀無血、皮膚乾痛等症狀。
遇到以上症狀,不建議自行喝涼茶或感冒茶,宜諮詢註冊中醫師,透過辨證論治分辨是哪種秋燥以對症下藥。

Cool and warm “dryness” explained
A decline in humidity in early autumn is expected. Though there are no big changes to our diets, we might feel dryness in our mouth, because autumn dryness inhibits the secretion of saliva and drains our body fluid. Some people feel dryness in the mouth but are not thirsty; some feel both dry and thirsty, and crave for cold drinks, why is that? Because autumn dryness can be categorized into warm dryness and cool dryness.

Warm dryness is commonly observed during the end of summer and the beginning of autumn, whereby the summer heat continues to linger, causing the warm heat pathogenic factor to interact with that of the dryness. The affected patients will feel slightly heaty, with dryness in mouth and thirsty, and constantly frustrated; develop headache, dry lips and nose, dry and painful throat, dry cough without phlegm and enjoy cold beverages.

The phenomenon of cool dryness appears more frequently during the beginning of winter, whereby the pathogenic factor of dryness interacts with the cold energy, and affects the body. The affected patients will develop the fear of cold, headache and nasal congestion, dry mouth but not thirsty, dry lips, nose and throat; dry cough with a small amount of clear phlegm without blood, as well as dry and cracked skin. Individuals with the symptoms mentioned above should not rely on drinking cooling herbal tea or tea to fight colds, but should consult registered and licensed Chinese medicine practitioner to identify the specific type of autumn dryness and the corresponding treatment.
