I usually use the homeopathic version of tecnu, "tecnu extreme" along with Xiao Feng Wan.  Bloodletting with or without cupping may also be used (usually in more serious cases).

I did not know there was a homeopathic version of Technu. Normal Technu doesn't have any homeopathics in it, just surfactant that would wash away the oils.  It is good know there is a homepathic version now. Although, the ingredients do not even list Rhus Tox, which is for poison Ivy.  (That is what I usually recommend. )

Copitis / Huang Lian

I have succesully used  copitits tincuture. You could probably dissolve the tablets in water and use that.  I scrub the area really well in hot shower to release oils then apply the Coptitis directly to the area. Works great.
