What is Dermatitia or Eczema? Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a group of diseases that results in inflammation of the skin. These diseases are characterized by itchiness, red skin and a rash. In cases of short duration, there may be small blisters, while in long-term cases the skin may become thickened. The area of skin involved can vary from small to the entire body. What Are The Types of Dermatitis Or Eczema? There are several types of dermatitis such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, seborrhoeic dermatitis and xerotic dermatitis. Each type has specific symptoms; however, there are certain signs that are common for all of them, including redness of the skin, swelling, itching and skin lesions with sometimes oozing and scarring. 1. Atopic Dermatitis This is an allergic disease believed to have a hereditary component, and often runs in families. While the condition may occur at any age, it typically starts in childhood with changing severity over the years. Itchy rash is particularly noticeable on head and scalp, neck, inside of elbows, behind knees, and buttocks. 2. Contact Dermatitis Contact dermatitis can be of two types, allergic or Irritant. Allergic dermatitis results from a delayed reaction to an allergen, such as nickel, copper etc. Irritant dermatitis results from direct reaction to a detergent, such as sodium lauryl sulphate. 3. Xerotic Eczema Caused due to excessive dryness to skin, xerotic Eczema worsens in dry winter weather. It mainly affects limbs and trunks. The itchy, tender skin resembles a dry, cracked, river bed. This disorder is very common among the older population. 4. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis A condition sometimes classified as a form of Eczema that is closely related to dandruff. It causes dry or greasy peeling of the scalp, eyebrows, and face, and sometimes trunk. Ayurveda describes Eczema as “ Vicharchika”. It is caused due to vitiation of all the three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. This vitiation makes the Rakta or Blood impure and hence the disease. The main reasons for this vitiation are as follows: • Viruddha Aahar or faulty combination of food stuffs • Excessive intake of spicy, salty food • Stress • Faulty lifestyle Symptoms: • Common symptoms of all types of dermatitis • Red rashes on skin • Swelling • Dryness and itching • Skin lesions with oozing and scarring • Thickening of skin • Discoloration of skin Treatment: Ayurvedic treatment for Eczema at Ved clinic is a combination of Panchakarma therapy (Detoxification) and internal medicine. 1.

Inability to completely evacuate the bowels or passing very hard stools is known as Constipation. Although constipation is often looked upon as a common problem, if not treated or if Constipation treatment is delayed, it can lead to further problems such as fissures, fistulas, piles, lack of appetite and indigestion. In Ayurveda, constipation is compared to Vibandha. The main reason for vibandha is disturbed agni or digestive fire which leads to production of Aama or undigested food. This causes obstruction in Annavaha strotas or digestive channel leading to further vitiation of Vata dosha. Vata dosha causes dryness in the tract and causes hard stools leading to constipation. There are a set of symptoms that help standardise the diagnosis of constipation .These criteria help physicians to better define constipation in a standardised manner. Bristol stool chart is as follows:- Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass); also known as goat faeces - SEVERE CONSTIPATION Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy - MILD CONSTIPATION Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface - NORMAL Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft - NORMAL Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (easy to pass) - LACKING FIBER Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool - MILD DIARRHOEA Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces, entirely liquid - SEVERE DIARRHOEA Ayurveda has advocated Mala Parikshan. If the stools are floating in the water they are normal but if they get submerged, they are made up of Aama or undigested food. Causes: • Incorrect food habits • Excessive intake of refined flour (Maida) in the form of bread, biscuits, cakes, toasts etc • Excessive intake of aerated drinks • Lack of fiber in food • Poor intake of water • Sedentary lifestyle • Controlling the urge to pass stools or gases.
