Abstract

Skin being the largest and protective covering of our all internal organs is susceptible to many harmful environmental factors causing different kinds of infections like bacterial, viral and fungal. Skin diseases are mostly caused by bacteria and fungi etc. Tinea corporis infection is very common in rural and urban areas. In Ayurveda all skin diseases are have been classified under the broad heading of „Kushta’ which is further classified into 2 catagories i.e Mahakushta and Kshudrakushta.[1] Dadru is one amongst the Kshudra Kushta. It is Raktapradoshaja vyadhi[2] having kapha, pitta dominance.[3] Due to similarity of symptoms of Dadru it can be very well correlated with Tinea corporis which is a fungal infection. In these cases generally systemic and tropically medications used are antifungal i.e. Ketaconazoles which may lead to many side effects and re-relapse too. In following case study a 31 years old male patient suffering from Dadru since past 6 months has treated with Ayurvedic treatment and a good relief was observed.
