Abstract

Indralupta (Alopecia) has many significant deleterious effects like social anxiety, increased self-consciousness, low self-esteem, embarrassment and depression impairing psychological well-being thus affecting mental and social status of person. Indralupa is considered under Kshudraroga by most of the authors of classical Ayurvedic texts. Acharya Vagbhata was the first to differentiate Indralupta and Khalitya. The risk of allopathic treatment outweighs their benefits. ‘Lepa cikitsa’ in the treatment of Alopecia as given by ‘Acharya Sushruta’ is cost- effective, non-toxic, and easily available. Efficacy of Romasanjanana Lepa (Karanja, Kasisa, Kapittha, Hastidant Mashi and Narikela Tail) in Regeneration of Hair in ‘Indralupta’ (Alopecia) is assessed through present study. Prospective open randomized single-arm clinical trial was carried out on 30 patients showing classical symptoms of Indralupta. The ‘Romasanjanana Lepa’ was given for local application twice a day over a period of 18 months. Indralupta was found to be more prevalent in males and in the age group of 41-50 years. Intake of Amla, Katu and Lavana Rasa, non-vegetarian diet, stress factor and use of cosmetic could be considered as etiological factors of Indralupta. Romasanjanana Lepa reduced the size of patches, and percentage hair loss on local application. On regular use of Romasanjanana Lepa, regenaration of hair was also observed to significant level. Significant change was also observed in symptoms such as Rukshata (Dryness), Pandu (Pallor), Daha (Burning), Raktata (Redness) and Snigdhata (Unctuousness). Thus, ‘Romasanjanana Lepa’ proved its efficacy and safety for topical Application.

Keywords: Alopecia, Indralupta, Romasanjanana Lepa.
