Does chuan bei pi pa gao create more phlegm?

In response. Actually yes.
Chuan bei pi pa gao is honey based and is sticky. It claims to be able to “hua tan” or dissolve phlegm. What it actually does is to mix with the phlegm and thus remove the phlegm because of its stickiness. It does not and it cannot dissolve phlegm. This draws out more phlegm from where the phlegm is lodged in the throat.
