Abstract

Shwitra is one of the chronic skin condition explained in the 3rd stage of Kilasa Kushta. It is characterized by the appearance of Shweta mandala. Details about the disease are very less in the classics. The clinical presentation of the disease is similar to Vitiligo in the modern science. Vitiligo is characterized by the appearance of Chalky white macules over the skin. Several treatment techniques are explained for vitiligo but none of the techniques are effective in this condition. In Ayurveda, Several lepa yogas are explained but most of the yogas contain Bakuchi as main ingredient. These yogas are very effective in repigmentation of skin but it causes blister formation, ulcer formation. To overcome these complications present study has been conducted. A total of 40 patients were randomly allotted into 2 groups namely Group A with standard drug i.e Avalgujadi Lepa after Prachanna karma and Group B with trail drug i.e Arkaksheeradi Lepa after Prachanna karma with 20 patients in each group. Assessment was made on subjective parameter like Kandu and objective parameters like Mandala & Size of the lesion. Observations were made before and after the treatment. Assessment of Kandu, Mandala & Size of the patch in Group A showed 100%, 55.31% & 26.56% improvement & In Group B 100%, 55.31% & 31.14% improvement respectively. The study showed that trail drug was more effective than the standard drug in the treatment of Shwitra.

Keywords: Shwitra, Vitiligo, Avalgujadi Lepa, Arkaksheeradi lepa, Prachanna.
