Abstract

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF VIRECHAN KARMA & AN INDIGENOUS DRUG WITH BAKUCHI-TUVRAK OIL IN THE MANAGEMENT OF SHVITRA W.S.R. TO VITILIGO

Dr. Monika Gupta* and Dr. Sharuti Sarin

ABSTRACT

Shvitra is a relatively common dermatological finding and one that has been observed since ancient times. It is a miserable disease of the skin which not only brings physical impairment to the body, but causes mental impairment too. Shvitra is supposed to be the result of the mithya aahara vihara, purva janamkrita karma and paap karma. It is twakagata raktaja vikara described among the varities of kustha. Shvitra can be correlated with vitiligo to certain extent in contemporary system of medicine. In modern science, vitiligo is an autoimmune disease directed against melanocytes characterized by depigmented/hypo-pigmented patches. The cause of vitiligo is unknown. As per modern science its treatment includes topical corticosteroids, topical immunomodulators, phototherapy including PUVA& surgical options including autologous mini punch grafting, blister roof grafting and epidermal cell transplantation. These all modalities are not very cost effective and are having so many complications, toxicity & more side effects. Also, these therapies are not easily accessible by everyone. In ayurvedic classics, our Acharyas have mentioned so many formulations in one disorder as per the roga & rogi bala which can be given either as single formulations in one disorder or in the combined form keeping in mind the principles of Ayurveda, a review on the role of virechan &indigenous drug with the local application of Backuchi-Tuvrak oil has been undertaken for the management of Shvitra.

Keywords: Shivtra, Vitiligo, Twakagata, Virechan.
