What is Measles Ayurvedic treatment


The condition called ‘Measles’ is a severe and highly infectious viral disease generally seen in children and transmitted as air borne infection i.e. through droplets from nose, mouth or throat. It is characterized by fever and symptoms of the upper respiratory tract like cough and cold. Measles shows a skin rash that is very typical. This occurs all over the world and leads to significant morbidity and mortality in children.1

As per Ayurveda, Measles is considered as ‘Romantika’ referring to the disease seen in the pores of the skin.  It occurs due to dosha vriddhi (vitiation of doshas), dosha prakopa (overflow of doshas) and strotavaigunya (etiological vectors in tissues) respectively. These lead to the classical infection and tissue invasion for which cell injury takes place and causes dhatu avarana (enwrapment of tissues) and dhatu kshaya (loss of tissues), with the initiation of the diseases.2
