What is Skin Allergy?  

Skin allergy is the hyperaction of the skin when it comes in contact with certain allergens,metals and chemicals. It can also occur due to allergic reaction to certain foods i.e. wheat, milk or dairy products, peanuts, walnuts, eggs, fish, etc.

Skin Allergy is mainly characterized by excessive itching, rashes and burning sensation on skin. Sometimes, it is also associated with nasal and chest allergy i.e. sneezing, blocked nose, watery nose, falling of secretion in the throat, wheezes in the chest, ringing sound in the ears etc. 


Main Types of Skin Allergy

Hives or Chronic Urticaria

(Also known as Sheetpitta or Dhafri or Pit Rog or Seeras in Gujarati)In most cases, raised red patches or bumps rapidly grow on the arms and legs which mayspread to the whole body. This causes excessive itching and is generally called hives. 



Sometimes blister formation with excessive itching may occur. These blisters may oozeand bleed which is known as eczema. Furthermore, eczema makes the skin dry, crusty, cracked and leathery. It occurs mostly inside the elbows, behind the knees and on the front of the neck. 



It is the most dangerous form of skin allergy in which eyelids, lips and genital area gets swollen. If the swelling spreads to the throat area, it can obstruct respiration and can be life threatening. 


Some Interesting Examples Of Skin Allergy

  3. Insect bites may cause allergic reactions.    
  4. Coming in contact with certain poisonous secretions or latex from plants may cause redness or itching of skin.

Why Anti-Allergics And Steroids Are Ineffective In Curing Skin Allergies?


There is no cure for skin allergy in Allopathy. Anti-allergics and steroids provide short term relief i.e. symptomatic relief to the patients. They reduce the body’s immunity by increasing dependence, so the allergy is likely to occur again. Long term use of steroids and anti-allergics is very dangerous as it can cause weight gain, loss of skin tone, deterioration of skin cells, hypertension, diabetes as well as they furthermore worsen the allergy.  


Ayurvedic Perspective Of Skin Allergy


Skin diseases find their reference in Charak Samhita Chikitsa Sthan, Sushruta Nidana Sthan and Ashtang Hriday. According to Ayurvedic texts, skin diseases i.e. Twacha Rog majorly mentions about Kustha Rog and places Kustha Rog in major diseases i.e. Maharog of the body. 

Comparison of diseases in Ayurvedic medicine texts: 


1. Urticaria

It is compared to Sheetpitta which bears similar symptoms to that of Urticaria. Urticaria shows the dominance of Vata and Kapha dosha i.e. Sheetguna over pitta dosha. 


2. Eczema

It has been compared with Vicharchika due to similar signs and symptoms. Vicharchika or eczema is caused mainly due to imbalance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Pitta induced Vicharchika imbalance is the most common amongst all. 


3. Psoriasis

It is a very common skin problem. Although it’s not a skin allergy yet an autoimmune disorder which has been compared with Kitibha by some and Mandal Rog by others.  

We work in accordance with placing it as Kitibha which has given us overwhelming results and cure rate. It is the imbalance between Vata and Kapha which manifests in skin and causes accumulation of toxins in the dhatus of the body i.e. rasa, rakta, mansa and lasika. 


4. Acne/Pimples

It can broadly be compared with Tarunya Pitika caused by imbalance of Kapha and Pitta. The imbalance leads to the collection of impure blood full of toxins causing an eruption or breakout. 


5. Angio derma

It is the Pravudha Awastha(advanced stage) of Sheetpitta i.e. Urticaria. It is treated on the same lines as Sheetpitta.  

Proven Research-Based Home Remedies For Skin Allergy Patients


  1. Take care of your bowel movements. Constipation shouldn’t be there. We advise Nitya virechana(daily purgation) for cleansing the system in a better way.
  2. A combination of jaggery and Ajwain followed by lunch and dinner also helps in curing skin allergies.
  3. Apply mustard oil mixed with curd on the body before taking bath. Let it stay for 10 minutes and then take bath with glycerine based soap.
  4. Before shampooing, apply lemon juice mixed with curd on the scalp for at least 10 minutes.
