HYDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA AYURVEDIC TREATMENT, SYMPTOMS, CAUSES & MORE
Hydradenitis suppurativa is a medical disorder that results in the development of small, uncomfortable lumps beneath the skin. The majority of these bumps form when the skin rubs together. The lumps heal gradually, but they come back and develop tunnels under the skin. It begins after puberty. It can last for many years and get worse over time, which should have an impact on your mental well-being. This condition can be managed, and serious consequences can be avoided with both medical and surgical treatment. Hydradenitis suppurativa and its ayurvedic treatment will be discussed briefly in this article.
INTRODUCTION OF HYDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA
Hydradenitis suppurativa is also called Verneuil’s illness or acne inversa. It is a long-lasting skin condition with lesions, nodules, and abscesses. Fibrotic scarring can happen occasionally. These scars generally appear in regions with a high concentration of apocrine glands. The axillary, groyne, perianal, and breast portions of the body are the most typical. These conditions frequently cause fluid leakage and are uncomfortable. After healing, scars do not change. Due to lesions in the sacrum, perianal, or vaginal areas, there may occasionally be a sitting impairment. In Ayurveda, the imbalance of the pitta dosha is the fundamental cause.

AYURVEDIC ASPECTS OF HYDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA
In Ayurveda, hidradenitis suppurativa is categorised as a Kapha-Pitta imbalance. Impairment of metabolism and vitiation of the Kapha Dosha result from the vitiated digestive fire-Agni (Pitta). The accumulated damaged fat molecules cause painful, swelling lesions in the armpit, groyne, anal, and breast regions. According to Ayurveda, ailments are brought on by blocked or ineffective channels. The body’s channels are blocked by the defective fat molecules that accumulate in hydradenitis suppurativa and are deposited in the body’s fatty regions.
