Vd. Dhruti Kagrana:
Features of Daha:-
1. Pittaja Daha:
All the features are similar to Pittaja Fever; Mouth ulcer, headache, burning sensation in chest, eyes and face. The measures prescribed for Pittaja fever are adopted here.
Madya means alcohol. Excessive consumption of alcohol provoke Pitta due to warm and penetrative qualities (Ushna and Teekshna guna of Madya).As a result, Rasa and Rakta dhatus (nutritional juice and blood) dry up. When this enters the related organs like stomach, liver, spleen etc, it causes burning sensation in chest and stomach.This is also managed similar to PittajaDaha.
Hot –spicy and penetrative food and beverages aggravate Rakta Dhatu (blood) and in turn burning and reddish discoloration is caused in the dependent body parts like eyes, tongue, axilla and chest. Severe thirst, coppery complexion, redness of the eyes are the other characteristic features. Metallic smell is felt in the body as well as mouth.This is managed by cooling therapies.
4.Trishna nirodhaja daha (burning due tosuppression of thirst):
Constant suppression of thirst aggravates Pitta and in turn it dehydrates the tissues.Thus it causes burning sensation internally and externally, debility, dryness of the throat, palate, lips and tongue, trembling etc.This is treated by cold infusions and coolant food and drinks.
5.Shastra Praharaja Daha (burning due to injury or effusion of blood in visceral organs):
It produces features described as in the condition of fresh wound.It is managed by the remedies prescribed under the heading of acute ulcers.
6.Kshayaja Daha (burning due to emaciation):
Emaciation of the tissue brings about severe burning sensation accompanying with dryness, thirst, feeble voice, retarded activities etc.It is managed by Rakta and Pitta pacifying measures.
7.Kshataja andMarmaabhighataja Daha (burning due to injury to vital area):
When a person is inured and vital organs are affected, ingested food gets mixed with blood (in vital organs)or is accompanied by various agonies and hence internal burning is caused. Unconsciousness, severe thirst and fever are the characteristic features ofthis condition.Such a condition is managed by all pitta pacifying measures and with pleasant atmosphere which cools both body and mind.
Ayulink: Can all types of Daha be treated with pitta pacifying food or herbs?
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: No; Neurological burning pain,Dm releted burning pain, Herpes zoster pain, Psychological burning pain
We have to consider different line of treatment.
Pitta pradhan - Vayu or cough second - Rakta third..According to dosh pradhanta manage the life of treatment
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: No, sometimes normal pitta is dragged by Vata to any place and cause Daha, in this case, Vata nashaka treatment should be done as pitta is normal condition, its called Aashayapkarsha.
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal: If only dosha vruddhi, prakopaavastha is there doshapratyayanika chikitsa is helpful, When Samprapti of vyadhi is completed that time Vyadhipratyanika chikitsa is helpful explained in chikitsasthana.

In rajayakshma chikitsa , charak has mentioned Vasaghruta and shatavari ghruta for hastadaha padadaha and angadaha specially when associated with jwara , urdhwaga raktapitta . So in dhatukshaya janya both anuloma and pratiloma ) samprapti which results in such kind of daha, this 2 ghrutas will be useful.
For daha associated with jwara , sahastradhauta ghruta or chandanadya taila for abhyanga is useful.
Honey, kanji, milk, curd, ghee, water , different kinds of shita (cool) parisheka, and avagaha are useful.
In daha which is originated in upper and middle gastrointestinal intestinal system due to ajeerna (indigestion mainly vidagdha-ajeerna) , virechan , vaman , followed by tiktak ghruta , dadima must be used.
