Ayurvedic Causes of Skin Diseases
In Ayurvedic eczema is caused by a major aggravation in kapha coinciding with slightly more minor unsettlements in vata and pitta. Ayurvedic considers eczema to be a minor form of leprosy and so the factors that cause that will be present to a certain degree within eczema albeit on a much smaller scale.
Psoriasis and Urticuria are considered to be caused by outside disruptions, though these external factors do cause some aggravation in pitta and vata.
Psoriasis is bought on by emotional problems poisoning the internal system and thus dirtying the blood, which then manifests in rashes and skin problems on the body’s surface.
By and large Urticuria is caused by allergies, which causes both the external and internal bodies to react in the same way as with psoriasis.
