A 2002 study in the Indian Paediatrics journal states that nearly 15% of Indian children now suffer from atopic dermatitis or eczema. This increase in atopic dermatitis and eczema among children is mirrored by an increase in these conditions among adults as well. There is also an unprecedented rise in conditions like Psoriasis among both adults and children. This is a very painful skin disease which is treated as an auto immune disorder and has no long term solution in Western Medicine.
Many of these skin diseases like Psoriasis, Eczema and Atopic dermatitis are managed using drying soaps which depend upon ingredients like coal tar and Triclosan . Further corticosteroids and topical creams are used that help suppress associated symptoms like itching, rash, etc in the skin. The effects of using these products are only temporary. After a few hours , the skin is back to its itchiness, and dryness .
Ayurveda gives us a different way of both thinking about and formulating the right products for skin conditions like Psoriasis, Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis. The Acharyas talk about a variety of Hetu (internal causes) which can trigger these skin reactions including contact with irritants, sharp fragrances, air borne allergens and also a variety of internal causes like eating wrong food combinations, eating at incorrect timings, eating food that is unsuitable for our prakriti (constitution) and genetic reasons.
To cleanse skin which is dry, sensitive, with the external barrier severely compromised (as in eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis), Ayurveda recommends cleansing skin with a specific mixture of herbs that are recommended in Kushta Roga along with very finely processed grains and lentils. When the skin is cleansed with this mixture, there is a natural build up of skin’s micro flora. In addition the Choornam lends additional protection for the body as the skin, which is our first line of immune defence has been compromised.
This wholesome herbal mixture does not irritate or temporary numb skin’s itchiness. Instead it works to balance aggravated forces of pitta + vata which cause itchiness. It also cuts down shotha (inflammation) and skin thickening due to aggravated Kapha dosha. Additionally it makes the skin “un -suitable” for inhabitation by aggressive invasive micro organisms and dissuades from further infecting the skin.
