Dr. Adarsha C. Patil*, Dr. Narayan Pai B., Dr. Jithesh Chowta

Abstract

Pama Kushta is a Kapha pitta predominant disease having symptoms like Shweta Aruna Shyava varna Pidakas with Kandu Paridaha, Srava, and Pama Kushta lakshanas can be correlated with the Scabies symptoms. Scabies is a parasitic skin infestation triggered by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei var. homnis having symptoms like severe itching with s-shaped thread like greyish to the dark line, Erythematous Papules, Papulo-vesicles, Nodules. Pama Kushta with respect to scabies is common in children without sex preponderance and lower socio-economic status so this is called the disease of poverty. It is transmitted through close contact, clothing, and bed linen and has an incubation period of one month in primary infection. Which 23.7% of Indian children are affected. Classically there are various Lepas and Tailas mentioned as a Bahirparimarjana Chikitsa in Pama Kushta. Among these Taila can be applied easily and preserved for a longer duration. Durvadya Taila proved to be effective in the management of Pama Kushta as per previous research work, In Bhaishajya Ratnavali under Nadivrana Adhikara, we get the reference of Nirgundi Taila application for Pama Kushta. Hence effort was made to evaluate the efficacy of Nirgundi Taila and Durvadya Taila in Pama Kushta. The sample size was a minimum of 40 subjects fulfilling the Diagnostic and Inclusion criteria selected and allotted into Groups A and B with 20 subjects each with respect to Nirgundi Taila and Durvadya Taila. The assessment was done on BT (0th), on the 5th and 10th day of treatment, and Follow-up was done on the 15th day. Clinical parameters were assessed statistically. Durvadya Taila and Nirgundi Taila were effective in treating Pama Kushta as an external application in children with a statistically significant P < 0.05. In comparison between both the groups, there was no statistically significant difference in the effect of treatment with P > 0.05.

Keywords: Durvadya Taila, Nirgundi Taila, Pama Kushta.
