ABSTRACT

Sheetapitta is one of the common clinical conditions of the skin that occurs due to exposure of a person to cold wind which aggravates Vata and Kapha Doshas. Vitiated Vata and Kapha Doshas associate with vitiated Pitta Dosha which gets lodged in the skin and vitiates Raktadi Dhatus also. Some Ayurvedic scholars consider Sheetapitta, Udarda, and Kotha as single clinical entities as there is no major difference in the signs and symptoms of these three clinical conditions. Though all three vitiated Doshas are involved in Sheetapitta, Udarda, and Kotha, dominance of vitiated Vata Dosha is found in Sheetapitta, and dominance of vitiated Kapha Dosha is found in Udarda. The clinical features of Sheetapitta include raised skin patches (wheals), Kandu (itching), Toda(pain), Chardi (vomiting), Jwara (fever), and Vidaha (burning sensation). The clinical features of urticaria are similar to the clinical features of Sheetapitta. Ayurvedic management of Sheetapitta includes Snehpana, Svedana, Vamana, Virechana, Rakta moksana, and the whole treatment protocol indicated in the management of Kushtha. A 54-year-old female patient with having chief complaint of repeated episodes of itching and rashes all over body since last 5-6 years was admitted for 21 days in P.D. Patel Ayurveda Hospital, Nadiad. She was diagnosed with Sheetapitta and treated with Snehapana with Panchatikta Ghrita, Abhyanga, Svedana, Virechana and Raktamoksana. She was also given oral medicaments including Kaisor Guggulu, Dhanvayasa Kvatha, and Haridra Khanda. A patient got satisfactory relief in itching and rashes after the treatment.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Rakta mokhana, Sheetapitta, Urticaria, Virechana.
