Abstract

*Vd. Jyoti Dubey and Prof. Vd. Sunil Patil

Abstract

Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance. According to Ayurveda, skin is an exterior differentiation of what is perceived by the sense of touch. This sense of touch spreads over the entire body and is derived from the power of Vayu viz., the neuro- sensory elements. Skin diseases are very common nowadays. Once a skin disease has developed it resists to get cured causing physical, emotional and social embarrassment. In Ayurveda all the skin disorders are taken under Kushtha heading. It is further categorized into Mahakushtha & Kshudrakushtha. Dadru is mentioned in Kshudrakushtha by acharya Charak and in Mahakushtha by acharya Sushrut. Acharya Vagbhata especially mentioned Dadru as Aupsargik i.e., communicable disease. All the clinical features of Dadru can be correlated to clinical features of Tinea infection. Tinea is a group name for a highly contagious, segmented mycelia fungus.[1] In contemporary medical science management of Tinea is carried out with usage of topical or systemic antifungal and corticosteroids. Long term uses of which also produces adverse effect too. The possible palliative treatment is with Ayurveda. In Ayurvedic text, Dadru is managed by shodhana, shaman and bahirparimarjana. So here we have taken Khadiradi yoga mentioned in Ashtang hrudaya as a shaman chikitsa for Dadru kushtha.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Kushtha, Dadru kushtha etc.
