Updated: Mar 1

Dermatomyositis is a medical condition in which both muscles as well as skin are affected, with inflammation the muscles causing progressive muscular weakness, while the skin displays a typical pink colored or dusky red rash. Muscular weakness is seen in muscles which are close the to the trunk, and progressive weakness may cause complications like difficulty in swallowing, breathlessness, difficulty in raising the arms and shoulders, aspiration pneumonia, ulceration and bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract, and calcium deposits in the body. Dermatomyositis is seen more in women in the age groups of 5 to15 and 40 to 60. This condition is believed to be due to a disturbed immune system.


The Ayurvedic herbal treatment for dermatomyositis is aimed at treating muscular weakness as well as the skin rash, and also boosting the immune status of the body. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used which act on the muscular tissue and helps in providing normal nourishment to the muscular tissue through improved microcirculation. This gradually helps in strengthening the muscular tissue and muscle fibers, so that they start to function normally. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are also utilised to treat the skin, the subcutaneous tissue, as well as blood and blood vessels so as to reduce the inflammation and gradually treat and heal the skin rash.


Ayurvedic herbal medicines are also given to flush the toxins generated from the muscles and remove these from the circulation, either through the gastrointestinal tract or through the kidneys. This treatment helps in early recovery from dermatomyositis, and reduces the treatment time. In addition, Ayurvedic herbal medicines which are known immunomodulatory agents are also used in high doses so as to boost the immunity of the affected individual. This treatment also helps in an early resolution of dermatomyositis. In most people affected with this condition, regular treatment needs to be given for about 18-24 months, in order to bring about complete recovery of the condition.


Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus successfully manage and treat dermatomyositis.
