Dr. Supratim Bir: Difference of 1 week.It was a case with C/o itching for many yrs.

Dr. J. T. Contractor: Malkangni oil+ olive oil+ castor oil + cod liver oil After massage exposure to tender sun light get the silky skin in just 6 weeks,avoid oily, spicy,sour & baker products in diet
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Before strat dipigmention of skin we must know anatomy and melanin for choice of treatment.
Upper and lower extremities muscular rash Cooper colour multiple skin rash go for leprosy.
Make clinical and examination to sure diagnosis.
That's make prognosis better.
Due to heamtological skinrash must make dd.
USA Gary Yuen: What would be the cause of such skin?
Vd. Binal Jagani: In Hyperpigmentation yashtimadhu taila local application regularly gives good results.
Vd. Manhar Prajapati: How's agnikarm work or where to apply in skin disease ??nice result
Mostly hyper pigmentation occurs after preg in female on upper cheeks.. Pandu also consider for this
Dr. Supratim Bir: Shyav varna n kandu indicated the doshik involvement, which I considered as vata kafa- so did select the Agnikarma. In vata, kafa n vata-kafa condition Agnikarma can be opted.
Dr. Dayanand Bothre: Which shalaka did you use? Gold or panchadhatu?
Anand Javeri: Topical application / massage of aloe vera gel combined with saffron works good on patches / pigmentation. And based on our earlier discussion, i think massaging triphala powder on skin should work.
Dr. Supratim Bir: Saptadhatu
Vd. Dhruti Nirav Bhatt: Vacha, Dhanyak, Lodhra, Raktchandan, Masurdal powder, rose Patel's powder mix it and make paste with Rose water or Milk and apply .it has very good result in Pigmentation or discoloration.
Kumkumadi tail is also good.
USA Gary Yuen: Any reason manjistha isn't used in perhaps all skin conditions?
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Manishtha is used where Bhrajak pitta needs to be corrected. i think its only Herb best 1 to work on Bhrajak pitta.
Shri Minoo parabia: Ingorio, Balanites aegyptiaca fruit is abraded with water and applied on Vyang.
Vd. Dhruti Nirav Bhatt: Ayurvedic medicine s like Kaishor Guggul,Arogyavardhini tab and Mahamanjisthadi kwath
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Dr Ravindra Ji's shared post about water and its effect on human body :
As Skin or tvacha is updhatu of Ras dhatu. Ras dhatu is directly affcted by Udakvah strotas.. Avrodh, grnthi etc. So Skin Manifestation of ras dhatu-udakvah strotas dushti -signs, and water imbalance or Ras dhatvagni vishamata are related. Thats why Arogya vardhini or Gandhak Rasayan is 1st choice as correctional measure of internal imbalance.
Main point of that article is too much water in food producess a state that favours biodegradation by germs thriving state for that food over a period of Time..so lesser the water,, lessar the bio degradation.
Likewise.. (yatha brmhande tatha pinde) too much water in human body is detrimental to Immune system s to fight agantuj entities or germs that may harm- biidegradation speeding up because of More amount of water than is needed for normal sustenance.
Udakvah strotas Dushti..Ras dhatu dushti.. Skin problems- the relationship between Water or udak imbalance and skin diseases. One more.. In all skin problems Vaman is best shodhan kriya. Udan vayu correlation with udakvah strotas..
Dr. Suyog Kulkarni: I have good experience with Kumkumadi oil. Also , for dark circles under the eyes , local application of Kumkumadi with netratarpan of Triphala ghrita and shirodhara with brahmi oil helps.
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Kumkuadi Ghrut for dark circles - Nasya.
Croatia Branko Markovic:
I am also curious. If the goal is hair regrowth, there are many herbs such as amalaki brahmi mandukaparni bhringaraj curry leaves hibiscus jatamamsi and others but would like to know more.
More about dark patches in this case.. But also while you are mention hair regrowth is interesting subject :) Didnt saw some good hair regrowth treatment - results in ayurveda although many doctors claim it.
Dark green vegetables such as karela leaves, gobi leaves, moringa, methi leaves etc might be enough to fix but certainly there are herbs to complement.
Ayulink: Are the skin patches from any disorder or just natural?
Croatia Branko Markovic: There wore not any history od disorder. It could be from the sun.
USA Gary Yuen: seems there might have been some mild previous disorder.
Croatia Branko Markovic: Probably it was but not noticed.. There was history of IBS but except that there wore not some sings or he didnt notice..
USA Gary Yuen: Balding is Indralupta, Rujya and Khálitya? is this covered somewhere?
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana:
Stimulants that cause Hyperpigmentation:
- Over exposure to sunlight
- Environmental pollutants
- Cosmetics and creams that are unauthenticated
- Excessive usage of antibiotics and hormone treatments
- Viral infections on the skin that is caused through the virus-acne vulgaris
Croatia Branko Markovic: Think in this case was simply: Pitta prakruti + pitta vrudhi + sun
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: On account of pigmentation, a bargained digestive system prompts an expansion of pitta dosha into rasa dhatu. Pitta dosha is an ayurvedic guideline of physiology speaking to the vigor of conversion in the body. The blood which is influenced by vata and kapha unfavorably impacts recuperating process.
Dr. Jyoti Ashok: So what is the solution for that? In vyanga , bangu no matter whatever v give including shodhana & lepana , some days pigmentation is markedly more some days less.
Croatia Branko Markovic: How to then get rid of pigmentation from picture? External and internal medicine?
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Pigmentation or skin patches corelated to weak liver function. all medicines that enhance functioning of liver internally. i prefer Aloe Vera, haridra, triphala. and punarnavashtak kashay. manjishthadi kashay. Exrernally Dashang lep, haridra, ambehaldi, mixed with manjisthadi oil or yashtimadhu oil or ghrut for lepan. some pigmentation resolve on their own with Time.
Dr. Uday H. Hanagal:
Vruddhastu kurute anilaha karshyakarshnya-------------denataha. (A.H.Sutrasthana 11th char. Doshadivijnyaneya adhyaya)
Here Karshnya means Blackish colour on the skin.
