Abstract

Vyanga or Melasma is a skin condition which comes under kshudra roga as per ayurveda. In this condition hyper pigmented patches appear on face. Generally these patches appear on face areas which are exposed to direct sunlight such as cheeks, forehead, nose, upper and lower lips. As per modern science it is believed that exposure to ultra violet radiations from sunlight causes melasma. Ayurveda described the term Vyanga for similar manifestation. It is characterized by the presence of niruja (painless), tanu (thin) and shyava varna mandalas (bluish black patches) on face which occurs due to vitiation of vata, pitta dosha followed by rakta dushti. The treatment as per modern science. has many side effects and the recurrence after the treatment is very common. The treatment for Vyanga in Ayurveda is very effective, with no recurrence and no side effects. As per Ayurveda drugs having Kushthagna, Raktashodhaka, Twak Prasdaka and Varnyakara properties are helpful in the management of Vyanga or Melasma. Ayurvedic texts such as Sushruta Samhita, Ashtanga Hridaya, Yoga Rantanakara, Chakradutta have mentioned the pathophysiology and treatment of Vyanga. Present article is indepth review and compilation of various Ayurvedic texts and modern literatures regarding panchanidana of Vyanga w.s.r. to Melasma and its Ayurvedic management.

Keywords: Ayurvedic treatment, Vyanga, Melasma, Kshudra Roga, Skin disease, Hyperpigmentation.
