Abstract

DRAVYA PRAYOGA IN VISARPA

Anoosha Adiga*, Nisarga K. S., Pradeep and Prakash L. Hegde

Abstract

Dravyaguna is a unique fundamental branch in ayurveda which deals with different dravyas along with their application in healthy and diseased conditions. Herbs are the major sources of medicine for different types of diseases. Classical text describes the prayoga of these dravyas based on the disease conditions. Visarpa is a disease manifested due to the involvement of Pittapradhana tridosha dusti. As this disease is of acute onset and immediate spread, it should be treated in earlier stage only. It is classified into different types based on predominant dosha involved. The treatment principle includes shodhana of vitiated dosha followed by different types of local applications. The clinical features of visarpa correlates with that of Herpes zoster which is characterized by discrete vesicles and burning discomfort in the affected dermatomes. Antiviral therapy is the main line of management in this condition. The present work tries to compile different types of dravvya prayoga internally and externally as explained by Brahatrayi, Laghutrayi and other classical literatures along with online articles related to clinical study on Visarpa.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Visarpa, Herpes zoster, Virechana, Raktamokshana.
