ABSTRACT

Acne is a common problem skin problems that affects almost 85% of the teenagers, mostly on the face and sometimes on chest and upper back too. Acne is a cutaneous pleomorphic disorder of the pilosebaceous unit involving abnormalities in sebum production and is characterized by both inflammatory (papules, pustules and nodules) and non-inflammatory (comedones, open and closed) lesions. Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis are common pus-forming microbes responsible for the development of various forms of, acne vulgaris. In Ayurveda, it is known as Mukhdushika as it is a condition that disfigures the face and as it occurs during adolescence to younger age, it is also termed as Yauvana Pidika. It is considered under Kshudra Rogas in Ayurveda. If the condition remains untreated, it leaves the permanent scars over the face. It is generally androgenic disease which is seen at puberty on both sexes. Today due to imbalanced life style (Apathy) and heavy pollution this problem increasing day by day. It occurs mainly as a Dushti of Raktavaha Srotas due to dominance of Pitta in Yuva Avastha. Also the Role of Medovaha Srotas has been mentioned in some Ayurvedic texts along with the Dushti of Shukra dhatu.So in this article we tried to highlight the Srotodushti involved for the causation of Yauvan Pidika along with the role of Ayurvedic herbs; directly or indirectly acting on the Srotas involved in the treatment of Acne vulgaris.

Keywords: Mukhdushika, Yauvan Pidika, Kshudra Roga, Raktavaha Srotas, Medovaha Srotas, Shukra Dhatu.
