THE AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT FOR TINEA VERSICOLOR BY VIRECHANA KARMA
Tinea versicolor is a common skin rash caused by over growth of yeast over skin surface resulting in uneven skin colour and scaling which is harmless, asymptomatic and non-contagious1. In this case generally medication used are antifungal i.e. Ketaconazoles systemic and tropically which may lead to many side effects and re-occurrence. In Ayurveda there is no detail explanation but somehow correlated with Sidma Kusta, which is one among the Maha Kusta. Which can be treated by Vamana Karma, Virechana Karma or Rakthamokshana.2 By this we can say Ayurvedic treatment modalities are utilized according to presentation of disease.
