How Does Our Erythema Nodosum Treatment Benefit You?

Erythema nodosum is a form of inflammatory skin condition that affects the fatty layer of the skin. Erythema nodosum causes reddish, itchy, painful lumps in the front of the legs, usually below the knees. Erythema nodosum is characterized by sore lumps, or nodules, that range in size from a dime to a quarter. They may remain inflamed on and off for weeks, then decrease and flatten, giving them a bruised look.
The condition Erythema Nodosum is classified as a shotha in Ayurveda (inflammation). The relevance of Vata and Pitta is kept in mind. Pitta shamak is used to calm the daha, lalima, and ushma, among other things. Redness, pain, swelling, and warmth are all symptoms of inflammation. The Vata and Pitta doshas are represented by these four characters. Because the condition affects the fatty tissue, Kapha dosha management is not disturbed. Blood purifiers that assist with seborrheic skin and pimples can also help with Erythema Nodosum.
The Erythema Nodosum treatment at Elite Ayurveda is associated with eliminating the root cause of the disease. The treatment includes multiple detoxifications, internal medications to balance the vitiated doshas, Takradhara, Shirodhara, Abhyanga, Lepa, etc. This line of treatment of holistic approach helps in reversing the condition completely.

Our Success Stories

Erythema Nodosum 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."
