A Brief About the Disease

Ayurveda refers to Tinea Versicolor as Rikshajihva, where a person experiences discoloured patches on his skin due to the fungus called Malassezia furfur which is usually present in the skin and is harmless unless it starts numerating uncontrollably. Ayurveda considers this may be because of a weakened immune system and these patches would vary from person to person. Ayurveda says that Riksha Jihva can be caused due to two main reasons, one is as we said before weakened immune system whereas the other is the imbalance of doshas. Vitiation of Pitta dosha and Vata dosha. 

Chief Complaints of the Patient 

  • Discoloured patches on the back, shoulder, arms and below the chest since his teenage years.
  • No itchiness but excessive sweating can trigger the symptoms.
  • Dry scalp with Dandruff.

Final Diagnosis by Dr. Sahil Gupta (Founder of IAFA®)

Dr Sahil Gupta via online consultation along with the Ayurvedic expert of IAFA®, Canada, analysed the symptoms thoroughly, examined the patches and concluded the diagnosis as Tinea Versicolor.

External Medications

The following were the external medications given to Milos for the complete cure of Tinea Versicolor:

Internal Medications

3. Aahar Amrutham Gulika

It is the perfect herbal blend for gastrointestinal balance. Ayurveda believes that most of our skin diseases are due to the imbalance in doshas and Agni (the digestive fire). So to treat any skin infections, we’ve to consider correcting the gastrointestinal balance. 

4. Kutaja Ghan Vati

It is another excellent Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of fungal infections by balancing the imbalanced doshas and gastrointestinal imbalances. 2 Tablets are to be taken every day for the best results. 

5. Changeri Capsules

Follow Up #1

After a month of using the medications, the following were the significant changes observed by the team IAFA®. 

  • Dandruff has been reduced slightly. 
  • But the good news is we can now find no symptoms of Tinea Versicolor, either the discoloured patches or the scaly patches.
