Ayurvedic Version of the Disease 

Ayurveda explains Eczema as vicharchika, a skin disorder manifested by itchy black-coloured bumps with heavy oozing. Rashes can be patchy, and severe itching and bleeding can also be seen upon itching. Seborrheic dermatitis can be explained as Darunaka, a kapala gata roga that comes under the roof of shudra roga due to the vitiation of vata and kapha doshas. The most common symptoms include Kandu (itchy scalp), keshachyuti (falling of hair), swap (abnormalities of touch sensation on the scalp), rookshata (roughness or dryness of the scalp), and Twaksphutana (breaking or cracking of the scalp skin).
