Abstract

AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF SHWITRA: A CASE REPORT

Gopal Krishan Dhakar*, Rakesh Kumar Nagar and Nisha Kumari Ojha

Abstract

Introduction: - Vitiligo is one of the skin diseases causing cosmetic problems. It is a common puzzling disorder of great socio-medical importance characterised by hypopigmented and/or depigmented milky white or ivory white maculae on the skin resulting from the loss of cutaneous melanocytes. In the present scenario, people are very conscious about their health as well as having beautiful and clear skin. Thus, health and beauty are two faces of a single coin. Moreover, a person who is physically healthy and is personified by beauty is much more intelligent and confident than a normal being. Discoloration of skin without perceiving pain is an exclusive characteristic of Shwitra (Vitiligo) Roga. Aim:- To evaluate the efficacy and safety of an Ayurvedic formulation (Vitimelin tablet and Vitimelin oil) in patients with Vitiligo/Shwitra. Material and Methods: - Clinically pre-diagnosed patients of Shwitra (vitiligo) were taken from the OPD of Balroga, National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur. Selected patients were treated with Vitimelin (one tablet three times) and a local application of Vitimelin oil two times. Oil application was followed by a 20-minute exposure to sunlight or UVA lamp radiation. Result: - At some point, after 3 months of treatment with Vitimelin tablet and oil, with 20-minute exposure to sunlight or UVA lamp radiation, the size of white patches clinically reduces significantly, and at some places the skin becomes normal. Discussion: - Following the result of the therapy on white patches, it can be concluded that internal use of Vitimelin tablet and local use of Vitimelin oil can play a significant role in melanocytic production. Therefore, both can be used effectively in the management of Shwitra Roga (Vitiligo).

Keywords: Shiwitra, Vitiligo, Kustharog, Vitimelin oli and tablet.
