Management of the disease Kadara by Tuthyadi Lepa Kalpanam - A Case Sudy
As a science, Ayurveda has a rich and comprehensive concept of life and health. The different branches of Ayurveda have evolved over the long period as health being mainly concerned with preventing as well as curing the diseases. There are few diseases which have simple pathology but difficult to cure that called as Kshudra-Roga. Kadara is one of them. Kadara (corn) is initially painless in condition but with its progress, it may become painful. In modern science, corn is being treated by using anti-inflammatory drugs, corn cap, salicylic acid and excision. Even today there is no satisfactory and permanent treatment available for corn because of its high recurrence tendency. In our critical analysis of facts, we had established that technology initiation in the preparation of Ayurvedic medicines, especially in Lepa Kalpana is like value addition in its pharmaceutics and therapeutic characteristics. Therefore keeping all these things in mind Tuthyadi Lepa in a systematic manner for duration of 15 days was selected for the treatment of corn (Kadara).
