Abstract

A PROSPECTIVE RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED CLINICAL STUDY OF TUVARAK TAILA ABHYANGA IN THE MANAGEMENT OF VICHARCHIKA

Vd. Suraj V. Birajdar* and Dr. Yeshwant R. Patil

ABSTRACT

In Ayurveda, all skin diseases have classified mainly into two groups i.e. Mahakushthas and Kshudrakushthas, Vicharchika has described under kshudra kushthas. All Kushthas are having Tridoshaja origine; hence, Vicharchika can explained in similar manner. Despite of its Tridoshaja origin various Acharyas mentioned different dosha dominancy in Vicharchika i.e. Kapha pradhana by Charaka (cÉ.ÍcÉ.7/30), Pitta Pradhana by Sushruta (xÉÑ.ÌlÉ.5/16) and Vata- Pitta Pradhana by Madhavnidana (qÉÉ.ÌlÉ.49/35), which also suggest specific symptoms complex. The features of Eczema are somewhat similar with that of Vicharchika. Symptoms of Vicharchika mentioned by Sushruta correlate with dry eczema, whereas the symptoms mentioned by Charaka correlate with weteczema. Tuvarak contain acids like Chaulmugric acid, Hydnocarpic acid, Palmitic acid and having Katu(spicy), tikta(bitter) rasa(taste), ushna virya, katu(spicy) vipaka, tikshna snigdha guna. By the virtue of this qualities Tuvaraka taila not only debrides the thick and lichenifed lesions, but also promote the growth of healthy skin. Hence its local application (Abhyanga) can prove to be potentially useful.

Keywords: Vicharchika, Tuvaraka taila, Abhyanga.
