Preliminary biochemical analysis of Karappan Kudineer Chooranam– Polyherbal formulae in Siddha
Siddha medicine is an ancient system of medicine prevalent in South India. The human body consists of the five primordial elements - earth, water, fire, air and space, the three humours- vatha, pitta and kapha and seven physical constituents. Siddhars classified the diseases into 4448 types. Skin diseases are also included in these types. Classical siddha text balavagadam that classifies karappan into 18types, describes porikarappan are skin manifestation as wheels, papules, pustules, itching, burning sensation and oozing. These descriptions are probably similar to urticaria. Urticaria is a problem in which red, itchy, and swollen areas show up on the skin. It can happen as an allergic reaction from eating certain foods or taking certain medicines. Though, sometimes the cause may be unknown. Karappan kudineer chooranam is a polyherbal formula in siddha used to treat porikarappan. This paper describes the qualitative analysis of karappan kudineer chooranam.
