Abstract

“EFFECT OF PINDA TAILA ON VIPADIKA (PALMO–PLANTAR PSORIASIS)” – A CASE STUDY

*Dr. Rutika V. Adhikari and Dr. Ravindra P. Bhurke

ABSTRACT

Palmo-plantar psoriasis is 2nd most common type of psoriasis that is characterized by well-defined erythematous plaques with silvery scales. Palmo-plantar psoriasis as name suggests is limited to area of palm and soles. In Ayurveda all skin diseases described under a single heading “Kushtha”. There is no direct correlation of disease described in Ayurveda, but in some ways palmo-plantar psoriasis can be correlated with the disease vipadika which is a kshudrakushta characterized by pani pad sphutana (fissure in palm and soles) and Teevra vedana (severe pain). The aim of present study was to evaluate effectiveness of Pinda taila on vipadika. Herewith reporting a case of 52 years old female patient who was presented with complains of bilateral large cracks and fissures in palm as well as sole, scaling and itching pain while walking since 2 years. Standardized Pinda taila was applied over the affected area twice a day, morning and evening in dried feet after washing with luke warm water for 6 week’s duration. Assement done with PASI (“Psoriasis Area Severity and Index Scale”), the score decreased from 7.6 to 0.6. Though Pinda taila is not mentioned by Acharya in kushtha chapter but some contents of Vipadika hara Ghrita taila as explained by Acharya charaka in kushtha chikitsa are present in Pinda taila. The present study has proven that Pinda taila can be used externally as an effective medicated oil to manage Vipadika as an alternative to Vipadikahara Ghrita taila.

Keywords: Pinda taila, Psoriais, Vipadika, Kushtha, PASI.
