We can treat skin diseases in Ayurveda through proper Shodanakarma(Purificatory procedure). The shodhana karma has to be done very systematically by following Purvakarma(pre purificatory procedures) and Paschat karma(post purificatory procedures). Purvakarmaincludes Snehapana – intake of medicated ghee or oil in prescribed dose for a prescribed period, and Snehasweda – Applying oil externally and doing proper perspiration.Paschatkarma includes proper dietary restrictions and modifications. As shodhana karma, either vamana(emesis) or virechana(purgation) can be done depending on the doshavridhi . Other than the shodhana karma,giving shamanaoushada(internal medications) along with other therapies liketakradhara( pouring medicated buttermilk ) is beneficial in treating skin manifestations.
