Achieve Natural Radiance : Ancient Antidote for Acne, Eczema, and Psoriasis

Skin Disorders like acne, eczema, and psoriasis are extremely common, affecting people of all ages. Conventional medicine relies on topical creams, antibiotics, and immunosuppressants to manage symptoms. However, these treatments can have side effects and do not address underlying causes.

At Dr. P. Alikuttys Ayurveda & Modern Hospital Kottakkal (home page), we offer a holistic Ayurvedic approach to treating skin conditions. Here's an overview:

Major Skin Disorders we Specialize in

  • Psoriasis: An autoimmune condition causing skin cells to build up rapidly, forming itchy, dry patches and scales. Commonly affects the scalp, elbows, and knees but can appear anywhere.

  • Eczema: An inflammatory skin condition characterized by red, itchy, cracked, and rough patches on the skin. A chronic condition that flares up at times.

  • Acne: A common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts. Usually affects the face, shoulders, chest, and back.

  • Vitiligo: A long-term condition where the skin loses melanin, causing white patches to form on different parts of the body. It progresses slowly and can affect any area.

  • Urticaria: Also known as hives. Causes red, itchy, swollen welts on the skin that appear and fade quickly, often in response to an allergen or trigger. Usually resolves without treatment.

  • Dermatitis: Inflammation of the skin resulting in redness, scaling, itching, and burning. Caused by factors like irritants, allergens, or eczema. Can affect any area of skin exposed to triggers.

  • Chronic Pruritus: Refers to ongoing itchy skin lasting longer than 6 weeks. The itch persists even if the initial cause resolves. It significantly impacts quality of life. 

Causes from an Ayurvedic Viewpoint

In Ayurveda, most skin issues arise from imbalanced Pitta dosha which governs the skin. Pitta perturbations manifest as inflammation, redness, burning sensations, and sensitivity.

  • Genetics: Some skin disorders have a genetic component, meaning they can run in families. Examples include psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (eczema).

  • Allergies: Allergic reactions to foods, plants, insect stings, or medications can result in skin problems like hives, contact dermatitis, or angioedema.

  • Environmental Factors: Exposure to harsh environmental conditions, such as excessive sun exposure, cold weather, or pollution, can lead to skin disorders, including sunburn, frostbite, and skin cancer.

  • Hormonal Changes: Hormonal fluctuations, such as those that occur during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause, can trigger skin issues like acne or melasma (skin discoloration).

  • Stress: High stress levels can exacerbate certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

  • Inflammation: Chronic inflammation in the body can manifest on the skin as conditions like rosacea or dermatitis herpetiformis.

  • Nutritional Deficiencies: Inadequate intake of essential nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, can result in skin problems like dermatitis or pellagra.

  • Excessive Moisture or Dryness: Prolonged exposure to moisture (e.g., sweat) or extremely dry conditions can contribute to skin disorders like fungal infections or xerosis (dry skin).

  • Scratching or Picking: Habitual scratching or picking at the skin can cause or exacerbate conditions like eczema, dermatitis, or folliculitis.

  • Underlying Health Conditions: Certain systemic diseases, such as diabetes or kidney disease, can manifest with skin symptoms as warning signs or complications.
