In Ayurvedic medicinal texts the etiopathology of the disease is considered due to vitiated Blood (Rakta Dushti) along with vitiated Kapha and Vata.To get rid of the problem, this pathophysiology of the disease should be break down and for this purpose the disease causing vitiated doshas should be either removed from the body or to be purified with local and systemic medication.Raktamokshan (Blood letting) is a well-accepted treatment for Vitiated Rakta Dosha
Much better results can be obtained with supplementation of internal medicine and local application of Lepa (Face pack).
Face pack made up of Lodhra(Symlocos racemosus), Vacha(Acorus Calamus), Dhanyak(Coriandrum Sativum), Chandan(Santalum album) and Ushir(Vettiveria Zizanioides) is very beneficial.
Smooth paste of Jatiphala(Myristica Fragrance) will help to remove black spots .Blood purifiers like Sariva(Hemidesmus Indicus), Anantmula(Tylophora Asthmatica), Guduchi(Tinospora Cordifolia) and Manjishtha(Rubia Cordifolia) are used for internal medication.

I have been really itchy since the beginning of may 2015. I started itching on my inner thighs, and then the bottom area of my buttocks. It spread to my knee areas. Then my arms and neck started to get itchy too. At first I thought it was bed bugs because it gets worse at night, but I ve washed my sheets and checked my bed and room. I ve also slept on the couch or another bed. But I still itch day and night. I shower before I go sleep and lotion my body because I thought it might have been dry skin. Lotion helps temporarily. There was never any rash or bumps. Only turns red when scratching. I just noticed small bumps about the size of a pea on my inner thigh, they don t hurt or itch though. And they don t look like pimples. I haven t had sex since Jan of 2015. Even then I used protection. What could this be?

I had a tubal ligation done in 2012. My cycle has been pretty right on ever since. Usually always 28 days. My period last month however was a little different. it was as if I had my whole weeks worth in one day filling more than five thick pads that day. then the rest of the time was light and spotting. that is not normal for me. now this month i am five days late so far. i have done three home pts. all negative. i have had a blood test done and that was negative also. however i have been experiencing all of the pregnancy symptoms for almost a month now including fatigue nausea headaches discharge bloating increased appetite. and since i have been late this month i have been experiencing alot of cramping and pelvic pain along with lower back pain and neck pain that shoots up through the back of my head making me almost instantly fatigued. sometimes my pelvic pain is localized on my right side. what could be wrong with me???

I have small red, brown, and somewhat purple dots on my legs and arms. They ve appeared spontaneously out of nowhere over the past few days. I ve recently taken vitamens i havn t taken almost ever, like; b-12, iron, garlic, and dl-alpha. so im not sure if thats whats causing it. Im a 16 year old boy and the first thing that pops in my head when i see strange dots on my body, is exaggerated like melanoma or something. so i wanted to talk to a professional, but my families economic situation isnt the best and doctor visits are last measures. not to mention, i have a series of small hard lumps in my pelvic region on both left and right and there are several lumps. probably about 12 on my right and 3 or 4 on my left. at first i thought they were my lymph nodes, but im also pretty sure you shouldn t be able to feel your lymph nodes and they shouldn t be so large. id really appreciate some professional feedback please!
