Diaphoresiscan be adopted to disperse the pathogenic factors. On the fourth day,pathogenic factors invade the Taiyin Channel, symptoms and signs ofabdominal distention and parched throat will then be observed, as theTaiyin Channel passes through the Stomach and ascends to the throat.The fifth day, when the Shaoyin Channel is affected, the patient willfeel parched in the mouth and tongue and thirsty, as the ShaoyinChannel passes through the Kidney, then ascends to the Lung andarrives at the root of the tongue. On the sixth day, the JueyinChannel is affected, bringing symptoms and signs such as fullnessand restlessness and contraction of the scrotum, as the Jueyin Channel runs through the genitals and connects with the Liver.

The idea of halting the transmission of diseases was further excavated by Zhang Zhongjing in his Treatise on Febrile Diseases Caused by Cold, in which he classified febrile diseases into six Channel diseases.
