I’ve also had a few people who just can’t take CH due to this, even when they flare into what looks like a classic shao yang presentation after a cold. They’ve often tended to be larger people with a lot of tendency to cold damp earth already, and I’ve ended up doing GCGJT based treatments, or JG on top of a GJ or FZ formula, that’s if the sore throat hasn’t auto-resolved by the time they’ve come back, after stopping the herbs due to the awful downpour I inflicted upon them 😀
