What is Psoriasis Ayurvedic treatment


Psoriasis is a long-lasting disease which is characterized by thick, silvery scales; itchy, dry, red patches which are sometimes painful. Types of Psoriasis include Plaque psoriasis (raised, red patches covered with a silvery white buildup of dead skin cells), Guttate psoriasis (small dot like lesions), Inverse psoriasis (red lesions in body folds), Pustular psoriasis (blisters of non-infectious pus surrounded by red skin) and erythrodermic psoriasis (fiery redness all over the body).1,2,3

In Ayurveda, all skin diseases can be included under the term Kushta. The word Kushta means - that which makes ones skin look disgraceful. Psoriasis is co-related with Kitibha, Sidhma or Eka kushta. Psoriasis is a krichasadhya vyadhi i.e. not fatal but causes great deal of unhappiness and depression.4,5
