Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF DADRU WITH DADRUHARA LEPA AND GANDHAK RASAYANA: A CASE STUDY

Reddy A. P.*, Chandane P. B., Puri D. K., Damle R. V. and Kathe M. S.

ABSTRACT

In recent years, there has been a considerable increase in the incidence of skin problems in tropical and developing countries like India due to various reasons like poverty, poor sanitation and unhygienic conditions, pollution etc. Dadru is one of the commonest skin diseases found in the society. It is a fungal disease caused due to the fungus Tinea. Acharya Charaka included Dadru in Kshudra Kushtha. On the other hand, Acharya Sushruta and Acharya Vagbhata included it in Mahakushtha. Clinicaly, initially Dadru resembles Kshudra Kushtha, which is easily curable by local application of medicine but if neglected, it goes into deeper tissues and takes the shape of Mahakushtha. At this stage Dadru is not easily curable. Taking all these into consideration, it was decided to take this disease for study. For present study, we had reported a 28 years old female patient, having red and white coloured circular lesions over her ventral surface Of forearm since 2 months. There was no significant past history of any other chronic disorder in the patient. Patient was treated with Gandhaka Rasayana 250 mg, three times/day orally and Dadruhara lepa for local application. Patient reported significant improvement in colour of lesions as well as other associated symptoms.

Keywords: Dadru, Tinea, Kushtha, Gandhaka Rasayana, Dadruhara Lepa.
