K. Rajakumar*, M. K. Sangeetha and I. Nithyamala

Abstract

Balakarappaan is a Siddha medical terminology for Atopic dermatitis among pediatric age groups. The present study was a case report of a 12 year old boy who visited the out-patient department of a private Siddha clinic at Chennai during march-2021. He complained of popular eruptions on both cheeks and face one month ago with itching and oozing that has affected his mental health and school going. The diagnosis was primarily made as Balakarappaan using the diagnostic criteria as mentioned in Siddha text Balavagadam and the simultaneous comparison with modern parameters were also made which correlated well with Atopic dermatitis (AD). The humoural imbalance in Vatham was managed with therapeutic purgation with Murukkanvithai Tablet followed by other classical internal and external medicines such as Parangipattai Chooranam, PalagaraiParpam, Gandhagarasayanam, Punganthylam and Kuliyal Chooranam. The outcome assessment was done from base line at 0 day, 15th day, 30th day and 45th day and documented. The results revealed the effectiveness of Siddha therapy for the management of Balakarappaan (Atopic dermatitis) in Children.

Keywords: Balakarappaan, Atopic Dermatitis, Natural medicines, Herbal medicines, traditional medicines.
