Abstract

A REVIEW ON VARIOUS STUDIES IN THE MANAGEMENT OF KIKKISA

Dr. Ramadevi G.* Dr. Dharitri Purohit and Dr. Mehak

Abstract

Pregnancy brings about many changes in women’s life, from social, physical, psychological including cosmetic aspects. As beauty is one of the most important concerns of every woman, this is hampered with appearance of Kikkisa or striae gravidarum. The skin changes and disfigurement of the skin is more so when kikkisa is associated with symptoms like itching, discoloration, dryness etc. Striae gravidarum occurs in 90%women due to skin stretching and due to effect of adrenocortical steroids, oestrogen and Relaxin on skin elastic fibres. Hence, primarily with cosmetic point of view and also clinically; treatment of these marks is a necessity. Many treatment modalities are available in Ayurvedic classics for treatment of these and local treatment modalities are more convenient and long-acting modality for treatment of kikkisa. Probably for this reason lepa kalpanas and tailas are extensively studied and widely used in the treatment of kikkisa. Two such lepa Kalpana and tailas explained in kikkisa chikitsa are studied at our institution and a systematic review of these is attempted in this paper.

Keywords: Pregnancy, striae gravidarum, Kikkisa.
