Ish Sharma, Aparna Sharma, Nancy Shahi



Ayurveda can safely be applied to heal many difficult conditions [1]. Sheeta Pitta can be correlated to Urticaria / Hives in the Western medical parlance. This disease is of Vata Dosha origin, with a mixed picture of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha symptoms. Two cases; males 16 years and 19 years having recurrent urticaria for 7 years and 3 years, respectively were considered for the present study. Both received Shodhana treatment with Virechana procedure, followed by Shamana (palliative management) and showed significant improvements.
