Skin disorders vary greatly in symptoms and severity. They can be temporary or permanent and may be painless or painful. Some have situational causes, while others may be genetic. Some skin conditions are minor, and others can be life-threatening.
Common skin conditions include moles, acne, hives, chicken pox, eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, psoriasis, vitiligo, warts etc. Skin conditions have a wide range of symptoms. Symptoms on your skin that appear due to common problems aren’t always the result of a skin disorder. Such symptoms can include blisters from new shoes or chafing from tight pants. However, skin problems that have no obvious cause may indicate the presence of an actual skin condition that requires treatment.
There are most effective treatments for skin disorders in Ayurveda. We in our hospital practice various skin treatments including diet plans for the same.
Skin treatments mainly include:
- Sarvanga abhyanga: Anointing the whole body with medicated oils.

- Lepa Kalpana: Application of herbal paste externally.
- Virechana: medically inducing purgation therapy in order to cleanse the body toxins through lower pathways.
