Empty-heat

Also called false heat. A condition of internal heat in the body that is caused by a deficiency of yin. Empty heat symptoms include diarrhea and cold extremities (yin conditions), but there is usually a fever with flushed or red face (yang conditions) and no aversion to the cold. Despite the presence of fever, warming herbs are usually required to treat the overall yin deficiency.
