This herb is usually indicated externally for kinds of itching diseases for actions of drying dampness, killing parasites, and relieving itching. It can be either singly decocted for fumigating-washing or combined with other herbs with a similar action to reinforce the action of drying dampness, killing parasites, and relieving itching. It can warm kidney and uterus and strengthen yang to cure impotence for internal application. For impotence and cold sperm due to kidney deficiency, it is often combined with kidney-warming herbs to obtain the action of warming kidney and strengthening yang to cure impotence. This herb can both dispel cold and dry dampness and warm kidney and strengthen yang, so it's most suitable to treat leukorrhea due to cold-damp and chronic cold-damp arthralgia accompanied by kidney yang deficiency.
