Thanks foe reverting back.

1. On looking at the photographs it seems either to be a simple fungal infection (kshudra kushtha in ayurveda) and/or more complex skin disease (kushtha) thus for proper assessment ideal way is to check with a Dermatologist or with a qualified Ayurveda Physician for proper assessment

2. Take: old brown rice,green gram,garlic, masoor/arhar dal,cucumber,old ghee,bitter substances,mustard/sesame/neem oil, khadira,amla,bitter gourd,pomegranate, honey,turmeric,light diet

. Avoid: newly harvested rice,radish,sour/heavy/slimy/cold food,milk,curd,sugarcane and its product,salt,day time sleeping, excess physical exertion,constipation,oily and fried food.

3. Fry some garlic pods in mustard oil and massage with that oil.
. Apply raw papaya paste
. Boil potato,remove cover,smash it and spread it on the cloth. Tie the potato side cloth in the affected region at night. Remove in the morning and wash off.

PS. These home remedies can be tried after other possible causes has been excluded.

4. Ras Manikya,gandhak rasayan, panchnimba churan,mahatikta ghrita, chalmogra/marichadi tail XXXXXXX XXXXXXX churan & chakramard beej churan are some of the prescription drugs for you. Kindly consult an Ayurveda physican where you reside for dosage recommendations.

Dear
Thanks for reverting back

1. Start with dietary regime and after initial checkup with a skin specialist start follow the management aspect and do let me know about the diagnosis since any alterations in given medicines can be made.

PS. Since skin and nervous system has common embryological origin thus do take a good Ayurveda mind relaxant (medhya or tranquiliser)

2. Do let me know directly on: bit.ly/drmunishsood for further necessary assistance.
