ABSTRACT

In Ayurveda all skin diseases are consider as one of the broad heading of Kushtha. Vicharchika is a type of Ekadash Kshudra Kushth, The clinical features of Vicharchika like Kandu, Pidika, Shyavvarnata, Strava, Rookshata, Daha, Raji and vedana are resemble with the features of eczema in modern medical science.

The Ayurvedic texts consider Raktadushti as one of the primary cause of skin disease and patient get relief after letting out the vitiated blood. Among various methods for bloodletting, Jalaukaavcharan (bloodletting by leech) is considered as the ideal method to expel out the vitiated blood safely, quickly and effectively. Therefore Jalaukavacharan karma (bloodletting by leech) was carried out to evaluate its efficacy in the management of vicharchika. In this study, 13 patients of Vicharchika were treated with Jalaukavacharana and they were given four seating of Jalauka Karma once per week for a month. All patients were assessed with Shamana drug of Gandhaka Rasayana – 5 gm/day in divided dose for a month after Jalaukavacharana Karma. The effect of therapy on the cardinal signs & symptoms of the disease was remarkable. From the statistical analysis, we can conclude that the therapy was effective and statistically significant. There was no adverse effect of therapy. The therapy was cost effective and minimum time consuming. There is need of the study on large scale.
