Darunaka (Seborrheic Dermatitis) is a common skin fungal infection that is caused due to the overgrowth of yeast Malassezia. It mainly restricts the scalp but sometimes can also be seen in other seborrheic areas where sebaceous glands are present. The affected areas become inflamed, flaky, scaly, and itchy. The patient can also experience stubborn dandruff. 

Various intrinsic and environmental factors, such as sebaceous secretions, fungal overgrowth, individual susceptibility, stress and contribute to the pathogenesis of Seborrheic Dermatitis.

In Ayurveda, it can be correlated with Darunaka. Acharya Vagbhata and Sharangadara have defined Darunaka (Seborrheic Dermatitis) as a Kapalagata Roga (Scalp Disease) while Acharya Sushruta, Bhavaprakasha and Madhava mentioned it as a Kshudra Roga (Minor Disease). And Ayurveda offers the best Successful Ayurvedic Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis and Yeast Allergy.

Yeast Allergy

Yeast Allergy is a kind of allergic reaction that the body produces whenever it gets exposed to yeast-containing foods. Foods like breads, cheese, wine, beer, and others are produced by the fermentation process using yeast. But not everyone can digest that yeast and some show intolerance towards it resulting in the inflammation of the body. 

Ayurvedic Reference of Yeast Allergy

In this shlok, Master Charak has described Satmya as the thing which our body can easily digest or tolerate and Asatmya is an agent in the form of aahara and vihara which causes altered allergic reactions in the body when consumed. 

Symptoms of Darunaka (Seborrheic Dermatitis)

Signs and Symptoms are due to the vitiation of Vata and Kapha doshas. 

  • Daruna (cracked scalp)
  • Kandu (itching on the scalp)
  • Keshachyuti (falling of hair)
  • Swapa (abnormalities of touch sensation on the scalp)
  • Rookshata (roughness or dryness of the scalp) and 
  • Twaksphutana (breaking or cracking of the scalp skin).
  • Thick, dried patches of skin.
  • Redness and itchy skin.

Symptoms of Yeast Allergy

  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Stomach pain
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

The Successful Ayurvedic Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis and Yeast Allergy is thoroughly based on the symptoms of the disease and also the root cause. Ayurveda always focuses on the front cause of the elimination of the disease.

Causes of Darunaka (Seborrheic Dermatitis)

  • The main reason for seborrheic dermatitis is the overgrowth of the fungus, Malassezia. 
  • Stress and Depression can exaggerate the condition.
  • Change of seasons, like winters, is a nightmare.
  • Weakened immune system.

Causes of Yeast Allergy

Consuming yeast-fermented foods like bread, cheese, baked foods, cereals, and alcohols like beer, wine, and vinegar-containing foods regularly is the main cause of Yeast Allergy. Cutting off these foods completely and choosing alternatives can help to reduce the severity of this condition. 

Final Diagnosis 

  1. Darunaka (Seborrheic Dermatitis)
  2. Yeast Allergy


Ayurvedic treatment of both the above-mentioned conditions involves external and internal treatment. The Successful Ayurvedic Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis and Yeast Allergy can be like we have mentioned below:-
