Ayurveda in treating skin disorders

Placing Soaked linen (PICHU DHARAN) - A thick swab or a cotton pad is called as Pichu. Pichu Dharana i.e. placing of soaked linen is a technique in which a piece of cloth, gauze or linen is soaked in the medicated ghee or oil and placed in the desired position over the body or in the body parts according to the site of the treatment. The procedure is said to be more valuable in dermatological conditions of the scalp as well as psychological disorders. This process can be confidently executed in painful conditions or ulceritis of the scalp too as they do not require massage.

There are six different types of pichus :-

  • Shiro pichu that is fixed on the Brahmarandhra (anterior fontanalle)
  • Yoni pichu – based at vulvae or at the external of vaginal canal
  • Guda pichu – fixed at anus or at anal canal
  • Karna pichu – inserted in the external ear
  • Nasa pichu – inserted in the region of nostrils
  • Nabhi pichu – placed over the navel
