Abstract

EFFECT OF SHODHANA AND SHAMANA CHIKITSA IN VIPADIKA (PALMO-PLANTER PSORIASIS) - A CASE STUDY

*Dr. Santosh T. Kadam and Dr. Madhusudan Pawar

ABSTRACT

In Ayurveda all skin diseases are described under the heading of Kushth. Vipadika is a type of kshudra kushth described in ayurvedic text. Vipadika is a vatakaphaja disease. It has similar symtoms to that of palmo-plater psoriasis i.e. Kandu (Itching), Daha (burning sensation), Ruja (pain), and scaling of the skin of palm and soles. Therefore, Vipadika can be correlated with palmo-planter psoriasis. It is a chronic condition that effects the palms and soles. There is hyperkeratosis, fissures and erythema and occasionally inflammation and pustules. These symptom may seriously interfere with patients quality of life and may be disturbing. There is no definite treatment for palmo-plater psoriasis. The unique trearment modality of Ayurveda plays a very important role in the treatment of Plamo-planter psoriasis. Ayurvedic chikitsa mainly based on 3 triad i.e. Shodhana, Shamana, Nidan parivarjana. A 62 year old male approached to OPD of M.A. Podar Hospital, Mumbai with chronic Palmo-planter psoriasis since 2009, was treated with shodhana chikitsa and with few shaman aushadhi. It shows remarkable improvement in this condition in span of just 3 months.
