Visphota kushta (blistering skin disease) is characterized by transparent blisters with thin skin covering. Management of Visphota Kushta in Ayurveda is rarely reported. The case reported here showed significant regression in the condition in short span of time and could completely stop the use of anti histamines and corticosteroids. A 32 year old female, presented with complaints of blisters over both upper and lower extremities associated with edema, burning sensation, pain, severe itching and oozing since three months. The treatments were given after ascertaining the involved dosha and the samprapti (pathogenesis). The involved dosha were and Pitta (metabolic factor) and Kapha (binding factor) dosha. Pitta - kapha dosha hara line of treatment was adopted in terms of mitigating and purificatory therapy. It helped in arresting the progression of the condition and a complete healing of blisters. Photographs were taken during and after the treatment for records. The blister completely resolved and the skin was normal as before. The patient was back to her normal routine with no signs of relapse. The outcome was a combined effect of both shamana and shodhana chikitsa along with pathya sevana.

Amavata is one among the most prevalent disease in the present era claiming the maximum loss of human power. Here is a case report of a patient suffering from amavata, where a systematic treatment protocol, purely based on the principles of ayurveda was adopted. A 62 year old female patient, presented at the O.P.D. of Amrita Ayurveda Hospital, on September 9, 2015. She complained of pain and swelling in all joints of her body. The pain was associated with morning stiffness which lasts more than half an hour. It used to increase on taking rest and also during cold climate. She had a poor appetite and tends to pass motion every time she takes food. She often used to feel feverish inside. She also complained of anxiety and sleep disturbances. The treatment principle of amavata includes langana, svedana, agni deepana, virechana, snehapana, anuvasana basti and kshara basti. She was admitted in the hospital for 20 days and was treated based on the same principles. She was given langhana chikitsa in the beginning which included valuka sveda, choorna pinda sveda and khsara basti followed by virechana with Gandharvahastha eranda thaila. Along with these treatments, internal medications and specific diet plans like pachana kashaya and sthoulyahara yavagu were also given to the patient.
