Abstract

EFFICACY OF JALAUKAVACHARANA IN VISARPA W.S.R TO HERPES ZOSTER – AN OBSERVATIONAL STUDY

Dr. P. N. Shilpa* and Dr. T. D. Ksheerasagar

ABSTRACT

Skin is the first organ of the body interacting with environmental agents like physical, chemical and biological agents. The worldwide incidence of Herpes Zoster is 5-10% per 100 populations and the Indian incidence is 2-6% per 100 populations. The disease Herpes Zoster resembles to a condition called as Visarpa which is described in our ancient classics of Ayurveda. Visarpa is one of the major skin diseases which are explained in detail apart from ‘Kushta’ vyadhi in all the classics. This gives us an idea about the seriousness and significance of this disease. The disease Visarpa is characterized by clinical features such as sphota, daha, shoola, raga, kandu, The description of management of Visarpa with different treatment modalities is available not only in the classical literatures of Ayurveda, but also in the later text books. Raktamokshana is a method of treatment which is considered effective in twak roga, granthi, shotha and raktapradoshaja vyadhis. This study aims at observing the effectiveness of Jalaukavacharana in the management of Visarpa.

Keywords: Visarpa, Herpes Zoster, Rakthamokshana, Jalaukavacharana.
