In Ayurveda all dermatological conditions are grouped under broad term Kustha. Ayurveda has its own systemic approach plan to treat diseases. In the case of treating Kustha, Acharyas has specifically emphasized on Shaodhan Chikitsa ,Shamana because of its repeated relapse. So in this present study we selected Vamana procedures of Panchkarma which are like Biopurification procedures of body and drug kanakbinduarishta, kushtakalanal Taila.
