Abstract

AN AYURVEDA REVIEW ON CAUSE, MANAGEMENT AND PREVENTION OF YUVANA PIDIKA (ACNE VULGARIS)

Dr. Sarika Yadav* and Dr. Om Prakash Dadhich

ABSTRACT

The concept of beauty has prevailed since mankind earliest ages but in today’s world beauty is one of the most valued and desirable attributes. It is that quality or combination of qualities which afford keen pleasure to the senses especially that of sight. Acne is the most common skin problem which most commonly affects teenagers. It is the blight of mankind and the caricature of youth. It afflicts 89% of seventeen year olds to some degree. In India, prevalence data from a dermatology clinic in a teaching hospital in Varanasi reported acne in 50.6% of boys and 38.13% of girls in the age group 12-17 years.[1] Acne can be correlated with Yuvana Pidika mentioned in Ayurveda. Acne is a chronic inflammatory condition of the pilosebaceous follicles on the face and upper trunk. Aacharya Sushruta has described Yuvana Pidika as the eruptions similar to Shalmali thorn on face especially of adolescents. It is also named as Mukhadushika. Hereby an effort is made to understand cause, management and prevention of Yuvana Pidika or Acne in Ayurveda prespective.

Keywords: Beauty, Acne, Yuvana Pidika, Mukhadushika.
