AYURVEDIC POINT OF VIEW
According to Ayurveda, the skin consists of six layers and it is not just located superficially but extends to deeper levels of the body. When a skin disorder occurs it is rooted in tissues like fat, blood etc. skin treatments are based on local application that doesn't destroy the root cause and the skin disorders reoccurs. But in Ayurveda, the herbs remove the root cause which doesn't let the disease reoccur. Most diseases occur due to unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle. Skin disorders occur due to aggravated Pitta dosha. Pitta is related to heat and all the foods that increase heat in the body should be avoided. Exposure to heat and foods like that also aggravate pitta which leads to skin diseases. The built up toxins due to imbalanced pitta cause Dyshidrotic eczema.
