ABSTRACT:
The term 'eczema' refers to inflammation of the skin and makes the skin irritated. Most common type is atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema. Vicharchika (skin disease with excessive exudation) in ayurveda can be compared to atopic dermatitis (AD). It manifests as erythema, vesiculation and oozing in the acute stage, scaling, and crusting in the subacute stage and lichenification (hyperpigmentation, accentuation of skin markings and thickening of the skin) in the chronic stage. The current condition known as atopic dermatitis leads to eager, aroused skin. Most often, it takes the form of patches on the face, neck, trunk, or extremities. This article presents a case study of a child who is having signs and symptoms of vicharchika. According to ayurvedic etiopathogenesis (samprapti) patient was diagnosed with vicharchika and is treated accordingly by internal and external therapies. Assessment was conducted using subjective as well as objective criteria. Oral ayurvedic medications along with udvartanachurna for local applications as part of the treatment was given. This case was successfully treated using the chikitsasiddhanta of vicharchika. After treatment, there was noticeable improvement in both signs and symptoms. The course of treatment revealed no complications. The study's goals and objectives were to assess the efficacy of simple ayurvedic formulations for the treatment. This single case report highlights thatthis ayurvedic intervention generated beneficial results and raised the quality of life of the patient.
