Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Dermographism
Dermographism is a condition in which the skin displays an exaggerated response to physical pressure. The response is in the form of redness, swelling, itching and possibly oozing. The symptoms are aggravated by heat, minor pressure, exercise, stress, and emotion. Dermographism is usually seen in young adults and can be either acute, intermediate reaction type, or present as a delayed form of reaction.
The Ayurvedic treatment of Dermographism consists of treating the skin as well as the subcutaneous tissue and the microcirculation of the skin in such a way so as to reduce or normalise the exaggerated skin response to pressure. Treatment is given both as oral medication as well as local application. Local application is usually done on the entire skin of the body, and soothing herbal medicated oils and ointments are used for this purpose. These soothing medications reduce the hyper reactivity of the skin and prevent symptoms of Dermographism to a great extent.
Ayurvedic herbal medicines are given orally in order to treat the blood tissue, blood vessels, the capillaries immediately below the skin and in the subcutaneous tissue in order to reduce the hyper reactive component in the blood and in the subcutaneous tissue cells. Herbal medicines are also given to soothe the irritable nerves below the skin, since this is an important aspect of treatment. Herbal medicines which have a strengthening and soothing action on the nerves are given for prolonged periods, and these medicines have a dual action out of which the first part is locally on the skin and the second part is on the brain, so that the entire nervous system of the affected individual is acted upon. This helps in turn to reduce the Dermographism symptoms from the entire skin of the body.
Depending upon the severity of the condition, and the known aggravating factors, Ayurvedic herbal treatment for Dermographism is usually required for about two to six months, in which period most patients get completely cured.
