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.
