Introduction of Professor Zhao Bing Nan 赵柄南教授
This handbook on clinical applications of many prevalent skin disorders can be regarded as a live-long road-tested experience of the renowned TCM skin specialist Professor Zhao Bing Nan of the Beijing Chinese Medicine Hospital, Beijing. The handbook serves as a guide for the treatment of many skin diseases and many of the formulae have been applied in today’s clinical by the Dermatological Department of many TCM skin specialists in Beijing.
Zhao Bing Nan successively served as the director, deputy dean, and honorary dean of the Department of Dermatology of Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and concurrently as the director of Beijing Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He was elected as a member of the Chinese Medical Association and its Surgery Society and the Society of Dermatology, and a deputy of the National Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Professor Zhao Bing Nan had been engaged in dermatological surgery for more than 60 years. In his later years, he devoted and specialized in the treatment and research of skin diseases.
For treatment of acute inflammatory skin diseases, Professor Zhao was focused on the differentiation of heart and liver and gallbladder, and his favorite prescription is “Long Dan Xie Gan Tang”. Professor Zhao reiterated that the heart and liver fire is the sole cause of acute inflammatory skin diseases, and “Long Dan Xie Gan Tang” is the indicated formula to clear the liver and gallbladder damp-heat. There are several versions of Long Dan Xie Gan Tang. With Li Dong Yuan’s version of Long Dan Xie Gan tang contains Chai Hu to target the damp-heat of the liver and gallbladder mainly addressing inhibited urination with lifting and dispersing function. Other versions of Long Dan Xie Gan Tang recorded in “Zheng Zhi Zhun Sheng” contains Ren Shen, Zhi Mu, Mai Dong, Wu Wei Zi apart from purging the liver and gallbladder fire, it also nourishes the yin blood. While “Shen Shi Zun Sheng Shu沈氏尊生书” version of Long Dan Xie Gan Tang, there are no Sheng Di and Che Qian Zi but instead Qing Pi, Bai Shao, Chai Hu are added to disperse the constrained liver and astringe the yin.Thus, Professor Zhao based on his clinical experience on the action of Long Dan Xie Gan Tang attributed to damp-heat. In his formula, Zhi Zi clears heart fire and purge the heat in the triple jiao while Sheng Di, Dan Pi,Sheng Gan Cao cool blood and relieve toxicity; Mu Tong, Che Qian Zi and Ze Xie clear and disinhibit damp-heat. Da Huang is added to purge heat by reducing the fire wood. Apart from eliminating Chai Hu for lifting and dispersing; Mai Dong and Wu Wei Zi from astringing; his own modified version of “San Xin Tang” (Liang Zi Xin,Lian Qiao and Sheng Zhi Zi) to augment the heat purging of the heart fire’s function. For treatment of herpes zoster, Zhu Ye can be used instead of Lian Qiao. Professor Zhao’s favourite formula is Wei Ling Tang to clear dampness.
