9.Festering tonsil

Name: Lv Wenlu
Date: 2001-05-21

The 4-years-old male presented with a history of fever and pain in throat of 2 days. When he came we noticed that his tempreture had climbed up to 40 Centigrade. His pharynx was red and his tonsils were red and swollen which had festered. His mother said everytime he ate prawns and meat his tonsils must festerd. In TCM,prawns and meat bring wind and heat to person's body. This boy had a powerful pulse which was a indication of heat syndrome. So we selected points to clear heat and nourish yin: Kneading Xiaotianxin, Kneading Yiwofeng, Pushing-reinforcing Kidney Water, Pushing-clearing Banmen, Kneading Hegu, Push-clearing Lung Metal, Push-withdrawing Xialiufu, Kneading Errenshangma, Push-clearing Tianheshui,etc. Five days later he resumed.
