According to Ayurveda all skin diseases are referred as kushtaroga and divided into Mahakushta and kshudrakushta. Vicharchika comes under Kshudrakushta and it is Rakta pradoshaja vikara. Sushruta, the Father of Surgery has mentioned the symptoms as rukshata with kandu and raji. In Ayurveda various effective modalities of treatment explained which includes Kaya Shodana, Raktamokshana, Shamanoushadhas which are cost effective and patient friendly. Among the various methods of Raktamokshana, Jaloukavacharana and Siravyadha are considered as the ideal method to expels out the vitiated blood.
