Abstract

A REVIEW ON AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF KIKKISA ROGA (STRIAE GRAVIDARUM)

Dr. Ankita*

Abstract

Motherhood is the most cherished desire of every woman. Pregnancy is nature’s gift to women but it comes with many physical and psychological changes in every woman’s life. Her lifestyle, appearance, beauty and so many things are compromised during pregnancy. Striae Gravidarum is one such condition which occurs in almost 80-90% pregnant women. Women tend to develop stretch marks on abdomen, breast and thighs or scratch marks due to itching during pregnancy. Maximum women feel low due to changes in their looks during pregnancy. Striae Gravidarum may be correlated with ‘Kikkisa Roga’ in Ayurveda. These are characterized by slightly depressed streaks over the skin of abdomen, sometimes over thighs and breasts. Though it is considered as a common physiological change observed during pregnancy, it gains medical attention as the remnant scars greatly influence the appearance and attitude of the woman. More over it is imperative to avoid unnecessary chemicals during pregnancy as it may cause adverse effects to the fetus. Therefore Ayurveda can suggest an alternative choice of treatment with minimal side effects. This review article is aimed to explore ayurvedic approach towards Striae gravidarum and herbal formulations utilized so far in successful treatment of Striae Gravidarum i.e. Kikkisa Roga.

Keywords: Kikkisa roga, striae gravidarum, kandu, vidaha.
