Ayurvedic view of Treatment

According to Ayurveda, Eczema or Vicharchika is caused due to a faulty diet and lifestyle, which leads to impairment of digestion and aggravation of Pitta Dosha. Pitta manifests in the skin and causes accumulation of heating toxins known as ama. These toxins accumulate in body tissues, contaminating them at a deep level and causing Eczema. Using local creams, antibiotics and steroids can only mask the symptoms; they do not affect the root cause of this disease due to which the disease may reappear . Ayurveda recommends an individualized treatment plan for patients of Eczema, including proper diet and specialized herbal combinations.Ayurvedic treatment works on pacifying Pitta by enhancing the body’s digestion, as well as cleansing the body of accumulated toxins.
