- The inflammation on epidermis is the main cause for Atopic Dermatitis. According to Ayurveda, this disorder is Vicharchika. Atopic dermatitis as per Ayurveda is the imbalance between vata and kapha. Kapha governs various functions of the immune system of the human body and vata controls the dryness of the skin due to which skin related complications occur. Ayurveda focuses on keeping a balance between vata and kapha, which is very helpful in the improvement of the skin texture, purity as well as the quality of skin.
