Abstract

Out of 11 Kshudrakustha, Vicharchikaranks in the topper striatum. The sign and symptom of Vicharchika as expounded in classical text are almost analogous to dermatitis (eczema). As far as eczema is concerned it is a known – contagious inflammation characterized uniquely by erythema scaling, oedema, vesaculation and oozing.


Raktamokshana is a process by which the blood is let out from the body for eliminating vitiated dosha present in blood as a part of achieving therapeutic effect. This is envisaged to be removing impurities of blood and enhancing the haemopoesis. Though various methods had been in practice, yet Jalaukavacharana is proven to be the apt one for rendering Raktamokshana.


A clinical study has been carried out to ascertain the role of Raktamokshana in the management of Vicharchika.


Significant results pertinent to the parameter like Kandu, Pidika, Shyava, Bahusrava etc. were observed.


Critical analysis of the result will be presented in the full paper, on the basis of available results on explanation regarding mode of action of Jalaukavacharana in eczema will be also discussed.
