Vicharchika is often correlated to eczema based on the clinical presentations. Eczematous diseases mark more than 10% of the general population and 15-25% of all dermatological patients suffer from eczema. While a large number of drugs are used for treating eczema, but there is either no scientific evidence to support their use or they have undesirable side effects. Therefore, there is a need to provide treatment options that are safe and effective. Now-a-days, many Ayurvedic companies are manufacturing many new medicines based on classical Ayurvedic texts.
