Abstract

Skin is a barrier protecting the underlying tissue from physical, chemical and biological toxic agents. Skin diseases are mainly affecting the external beauty of the patients that hampers the daily routine of one’s life. Skin disorders constitute one of the largest groups of health problems in general clinical practice. Kushta is a broad term which covers almost all the skin disease in Ayurveda. In general Twak Vikaras are mainly affecting due to altered lifestyle, lack of physical exercise, poor hygiene, mental stress and improper food habits. Kushta is further divided into Maha Kushta and Kshudra Kushta. Kitibha Kushta is one of the Kshudra Kushta. Here Tridosha, Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa, Ambu are affected. Rakta Dusti is the main cause of Twak Vikaras. Virechana is the Shodhana Karma for Raktaja Vikaras. After Shodhana, Shamana Chikitsa plays major role for Alpadosha Nirharana. This paper highlights a case study of Kitibha Kushta as a Raktavahasrotodusti Vikara treated with the Ayurvedic principles in particular Shodhana Chikitsa.
