Ayurveda describes Dadru as one of the most common skin diseases. Twak Sharir is an
essential concept in Ayurveda. Twak Sharir is defined in Ayurvedic literature as having
different types of Kushtha depending on the layers of skin. Dadru is a form of Kushtha that
primarily affects the fourth layer of the skin's six layers. Dadru's clinical manifestation is
closely linked to local fungal/tinea infection, which affects up to 15% of the population,
according to modern science. Excessive severe itching and ring-shaped red patches are the
common manifestations that Darshana and Prashana Pariksha can diagnose.
Management includes Shodhan, Shaman and Bahirparimarjan Chikitsa. Among them,
Shaman measures in the form of Lepa (topical applications) are widely prescribed. In the
present study, Gandhakadi Malhar is selected as a Topical application.
