Dr. Madhubabu G.*, G. Rameshbabu and K. Harshavardhan Appaji

ABSTRACT

Skin disorders are the most common diseases which most of the physicians come across in their routine clinical practice. In Ayurveda all types of skin disorders were explained under a common heading Kustha and the description given for Vicharchika type of Kśudra Kuśtha closely resembles with Eczema. In Ayurveda Rasauśadhies are known for their high potency, fast action and capable of alleviating dreadful and incurable diseases. “GandhakaKalpa” is one such herbomineral formulation described to have ability to cure almost all types of diseases when given with suitable anupāna. The main ingredients are Gandhaka, Triphala, Trikatu, Vidanga and Chitrakamula. An attempt has been made to study its efficacy clinically on Vicharchika through “Non-Randomised open labeled Trial over a sample of 30 patients with restricted/purposive sampling. GandhakaKalpa has shown complete remission in 10% patients, marked improvement in 46.66% patients, improvement in 30% patients, and no relief in 13.33% patients. It has given statistically highly significant relief (p<0.001) in Kandu, Pidaka, Śyāva Rukshata and Srāva symptoms and significant relief (p<0.05) in Rāji.

Keywords: Gandhaka Kalpa, Vicharchika, Eczema.
