ABSTRACT:
Psoriasis is one of the common skin diseases encountered in world population which is characterized by sharply demarcated erythematous papules and plaques. Prevalence of psoriasis is 0.1 to 3 per cent worldwide. Psoriasis occurs equally in both genders, most commonly in second to fourth decade of life. In this paper, a case report of patient with (Ekakushtha) Chronic Plaque Psoriasis is discussed with successful Ayurvedic treatment. A 25-year-old female patient came with complaints of reddish lesions over arms, forearms, legs, thighs and trunk region; itching and burning sensation over lesion and scalp; scaling over scalp region since five years. The condition was diagnosed as Ekakushtha according to Ayurved and the treatment was planned accordingly. The patient was treated with Ayurvedic oral medications, local applications and Pathya (wholesome diet) regimen without any Panchakarma therapy. Ayurvedic management has given her better results within 45 days from commencement of treatment.
