Abstract

AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF VICHARCHIKA KUSHTHA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO ECZEMA-A CASE STUDY

*Dr. Santosh Irayya Swami and Dr. Ashwini Gautam Shete

.

Abstract

Having bad skin is one of the many things that can affect our confidence. Good skin boosts our confidence, and it initiates good health as well. In Ayurveda, all skin diseases are included in Kustharoga. There are two types of Kushtaroga, i.e Mahakushta and Kshudrakustha. Vicharchika is one of the Kshudrakushtha occuring mainly due to Imbalance of Tridosha. According to modern science, Vicharchika has similar clinical presentation as Eczema. Eczema is a form of dermatitis which is characterized by dry itchy skin with areas of poorly demarcated erythema and scale. In contemporary medical practice, no satisfactory treatment is available except antihistamines and topical steroids. These modern treatment modalities are not devoid from grave complications mainly in long term use. Due to these reasons, there is need for treatment having good efficacy and no toxicity profile. So the case report involved a male patient having complaints of blackish discoloration, itching, flaking and cracking on anterior side of left leg. The plan of treatment is Amrutadi Kwatha mentioned in Chakradatta Samhita. The contents present in the Amrutadi Kwatha helps to break the pathogenesis by its Tikta, Kashaya Rasa, Anushna Virya, Madhura Vipaka, Ruksha, Laghu Guna, as well as blood purifying activity.

Keywords: Vicharchika, Mahakustha, Kshudra Kustha, Eczema, Amrutadi Kwatha.
