The skin protects our body from interaction with many harmful toxins by becoming a barrier between our internal body and the environment. The skin itself can get prone to many diseases and need proper investigation and treatment. Atopic dermatitis is one such skin condition in which the skin gets abnormally affected and has several abnormal symptoms. In this article, we will be discussing all the various causes and symptoms of this skin disease. We will also detail what Ayurveda offers in the management of such skin conditions.
Atopic dermatitis is a skin condition in which itchy, dry, red, inflamed patches are seen on the skin. This inflammatory condition is also known as eczema. This is found in children as well as adults depending just on the reasons behind its occurrence. The skin becomes extremely dry in this condition, due to which excessive itching occurs. Continues scratching and rubbing of the skin leads to thickening of the skin area that leads to the appearance of hyper-pigmented skin areas with excess bruising. Dermatitis needs to be differentiated from other inflammatory skin conditions by a careful diagnosis. Untreated dermatitis can cause complications like more severe skin infections.
According to Ayurveda, this inflammatory skin condition is known as ‘Vicharchika’. All types of skin disorders are classified under Kushta Roga. Vicharchika is a sub-type of Kushta Roga in which predominantly Kapha dosha along with vata and pitta dosha are involved in the appearance of abnormal symptoms and the disease. Complete care is available in acute skin diseases whereas, in chronic stages, the treatment just focuses on managing the symptoms to arrest the progression of the disease, which improves the patient’s quality of life.
