A Brief About the Disease
Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes small, raised, pearl-like bumps on the skin. It is caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus, which is a member of the poxvirus family.
Molluscum contagiosum is most commonly seen in children, but it can also affect adults. It spreads easily through skin-to-skin contact, sexual contact, and sharing of towels or other personal items, and can also spread from one part of the body to another.
How Does Ayurveda Describe this Disease?
Molluscum Contagiosum is correlated to Ajagallika, one among the kshudra roga in ayurveda classics. Ayurveda has mentioned that it is caused due to the vitiation of Kapha and vata dosha. Ajagallika is a skin condition that is usually grown in the sveta layer (white layer) of the skin.
Ajagallika has been mentioned in the ayurveda as per the below shloka.
Shloka No. 1, Chapter 31, Kshudrarogavijnaneeyam, Utharasthanam, Astangahrudaya by Acharya Vaghbhata
Ajagallika can be characterised by the painless, smooth surface papules which are the same as the colour of the skin. The papules can be sometimes itchy and can also spread to other body parts.
What are Some Prominent Symptoms of Molluscum Contagiosum?
This viral skin condition is considered highly contagious from one person to the other. So, if you see any of the following symptoms, do visit a healthcare provider immediately:-
- Small, raised, round, and dome-shaped lesions on the skin that are usually pink, white, and flesh-colored.
- The lesions typically have a dimpled or central depression, which is a hallmark of the virus.
- The lesions can occur anywhere on the body, but they are most commonly found on the face, neck, arms, hands, and genital area.
- The lesions may itch or become irritated, especially if they are scratched.
- The lesions may spread from person to person through skin-to-skin contact, or sharing of personal items such as towels, clothing, or toys.
- In people with weakened immune systems, the lesions may be larger and more numerous, and they may take longer to clear up.
The Main Cause of the Disease
Molluscum Contagiosum is caused by a virus called the Molluscum Contagiosum virus which belongs to the pox virus family and is highly contagious. It is most commonly spread through direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person, but it can also spread through contact with contaminated objects or surfaces.
Once the patient has come into contact with the virus, the virus enters the body through small cuts or openings that are caused due to scratching or insect bites. When the virus enters the body, it causes the growth of raised, dome-shaped lesions.
Who’s at Greater Risk of this Disease?
- People who come into close contact with the infected person.
- People working at daycare, schools, gyms, and others.
- People with weakened immunity.
- Patients with HIV/AIDS.
- Patients who are under chemotherapy.
Some Chief Complaints of the Disease
The patient has raised some skin issues like the appearance of multiple lesions on the thighs and inner buttocks with severe itching. The patient also had some indigestion issues like bloating and acidity.
The Main Aim of IAFA®
- To identify the root cause of the disease.
- To treat the patient’s Molluscum Contagiosum from the root cause and not just work on the appearing papules.
- To improve the patient’s digestion capacity and Agni (digestive fire).
- To treat bloating and acidity.
Ayurvedic Treatment of Molluscum Contagiosum at IAFA®
For successful Ayurvedic treatment of molluscum contagiosum, IAFA® provides the patient with both external and internal treatment options. External therapy involves the healing of lesions completely without leaving any scars. Internal therapy includes medicines to correct gut issues and improve digestion. Dr. Sahil Gupta has said that she would need around more than 9 months to 1 year of continuous use of medicine to get complete resolvement of the viral warts. But she got good results within 8 months and she stopped the medication later.
1. IAFA AF-7 Bar:
The patient has been advised to bathe daily using the AF-7 bar instead of her regular bathing bar. Because the IAFA AF-7 bar is made of ingredients that are antifungal and anti-microbial it helps her skin to get rid of the infection and treats the disease from the root cause. It also nourishes the skin and retains its moisture.
2. IAFA AF-7 Cream:
After taking a bath with the AF-7 bar, the patient is advised to apply the IAFA AF-7 cream because this cream is made of ingredients that are anti-viral, antifungal and antimicrobial. It also protects the skin from future infections.
3. IAFA Swaras Chikitsa – Bhoomi Amla Swaras:
Take 20-30 ml of swaras in a day with an equal amount of water before meals. Swaras bypass the digestive system and enter the bloodstream rapidly allowing the body to absorb all the herbs effectively. Bhoomi Amla swaras enhance digestion, treat gut issues, flush away toxins from the body and boost immunity.
4. Changeri Capsules:
2 capsules twice a day before a meal or in between meals. Changeri has its benefits in treating viral warts, fungal infections, superficial skin infections and immune system rejuvenation.
Pathya of the Disease
Pathya is nothing but the dos’. The patient is advised to keep herself away from other people as the disease is more easily contagious to others and she’s supposed to keep the contaminated area hygienic to prevent exaggeration. Further, the patient is advised to eat easily digestible food and lite on the gut. She should increase the consumption of plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats. Because healthy food helps in keeping the body healthy, boosts immunity and prevents further infections.
Apathy for the Disease
These are some of the strong don’ts of the disease. The patient should avoid the use of any cosmetics and harsh chemicals on the lesions and the consumption of virus aahar, oily and spicy foods, and deep-fried and processed foods should be avoided. The patient also has been advised to avoid contact with other persons.
The patient has been given 3 follow-ups after initiating the treatment to keep the progress of the disease in check.
After using the medicines for one month the patient has developed some improvement in her condition. And she started to feel better than before. Her rashes and bumps were severely reduced and she felt less itchy than before. IAFA AF-7 bar and cream has worked well and is well suited to her. Bhoomi Amla swaras has helped her to digest the food easily and resolved around 50% of her gut issues.
As the medicines are well suited, she has been advised to continue the medicine for another 2 months to resolve the issue completely and make her free from the condition. She used to feel better about her skin after using both the IAFA AF-7 bar and cream. More than 80% of bumps are treated and her skin nourishment has also improved. She didn’t feel bloating and acidity issues after using Bhoomi Amla swaras and Changeri capsules. She also seemed to boost her immunity to fight any further futuristic infections.
However, Dr. Sahil Gupta advised the patient to continue the medicines for another month to flush away the virus completely from the body and also to work much better on the gut issues. So the medications were continued until she felt that she had recovered completely from the disease and she no longer felt any irritation from any of the symptoms.
After the 3 follow-ups, the patient has been told to contact IAFA® whenever she needs to talk with Dr Gupta. Riya continued the medication for 8 months and her condition was treated successfully from the root cause.

A Quick Wrap-Up
Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin condition that if left untreated can be contagious to other persons who come in contact with the patient. The Patient can witness the appearance of bumped papules on the infected area. It is caused by a virus belonging to the family of the pox virus. Even though the patient has tried other conventional medicines, she doesn’t get 100% relief and the recurrence of the disease was very common.
Luckily she approached IAFA® and Dr. Sahil Gupta said that she would need around more than 9 months of treatment for curing the disease from the root cause. After using the IAFA®’s herbal medicine and following the Pathya and Apathya of the disease, she recovered completely within 8 months of therapy. She didn’t see any recurrence of the disease and now she’s living happily without worrying of any kind of skin infection. As you can see how IAFA® concentrated on treating the root cause of the disease, it didn’t just prescribe the external medication that could disappear her bumps but also worked on her gut, the place where most skin disorders arise. That’s the beauty of Ayurveda, it focuses on the root cause and tries to resolve it so that the recurrence of the disease is not seen.
