How Does Our Bullous pemphigoid Treatment Benefit You?

Bullous pemphigoid is a rare skin disorder that affects mostly persons in their forties and fifties. It produces everything from itchy, hive-like welts to big, fluid-filled blisters that can become infected. Bullous pemphigoid can affect only a small portion of the body or it might infect the entire body. It usually develops on armpits, upper thighs and abdomen.
“Visphota'' is defined in Ayurveda as a condition in which eruptions of burn-like vesicles (Agnidagdha sphota) develop all over the body or on a specific spot and are accompanied by fever. The symptoms arise when Rakta and Pitta are vitiated. Visphoa is characterized by the appearance of sphota (blisters) all over the body, as well as a burning feeling, fever, and thirst. It's also known as Shveta arunavabhasa sphota (whitish-red) and Tanu tvak (skin over the rash will grow thin), and it's caused by Pitta and Kapha dosha vitiation.
Bullous pemphigoid treatment in Ayurveda suggests removal of toxins from the body and balancing the vitiated doshas. The treatment includes multiple detoxification of the body, intake of internal medications to balance the vitiated doshas, external application of herbal formulations along with maintenance of proper diet and lifestyle.

Understand how we can help you with bullous pemphigoid ..


 At Elite Ayurveda, treatment for bullous pemphigoid starts with understanding of patients’ constitution of body and observing the impact of dominant dosha. Further, the treatment can be noted as below:

Detoxification: In order to eradicate toxins from the body, internal medications are administered to induce vomiting and loose stools. This is a step involved in Panchakarma treatment, which is helpful in purification of the body. It also involves Raktamokshana (purification of blood), Vamana (Therapeutic emesis) and virechana (purgation).

Internal medications: Medications like Guluchyadi kasayam, Mustadi kasaya, Kulakadi kasaya, Chandanasava, etc. are prescribed in order to balance the vitiated doshas and help in a bullous pemphigoid condition.

External application: This involves massage over the affected area with lepam, panchatwagadi churna, nyagrodadi churna, etc. It may also involve the process of seka in some cases.

Types of pemphigoid

  1. Bullous pemphigoid: This is the most common type of pemphigoid which is signified with skin blisters which appear on arms and legs, also in the lower abdomen.
  2. Cicatricial pemphigoid: It is also known as mucous membrane pemphigoid, as it forms blisters on the mucous membranes. The blisters may also appear on the mouth, eyes, nose, throat, or genitals. The rash may begin from one of these seats and spread to other parts if left untreated.
  3. Pemphigoid gestationis: These types of blisters usually occur after pregnancy which are also known as herpes gestationis. Blisters usually appear in the second or third trimester of pregnancy, although they can appear at any point throughout the pregnancy or up to six weeks following birth. Blisters usually appear on the arms, legs, and stomach.

Bullous pemphigoid Treatment, Naturally

Root Cause Treatment

“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”

Wisdom of Ayurveda

“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”

More Than Just Medicines

"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."
