Ayurveda regards Erythema Nodosum as a shotha (irritation) with a dominating vata and pitta. Hence, Pitta shamak (pacifying) treatment is done to conciliate the daha, lalima, ushma and so on. The redness, tenderness, swelling and temperature resulting from any inflammation may be rightly attributed to the vata and pitta doshas. These four characters address the Vata and Pitta dosha. Since the infection occurs on the fatty layer of skin, Kapha dosha involvement may not be overruled. Blood purifiers which are useful in seborrheic skin and nodules are proven useful in administration of Erythema Nodosum.
