The color of this bump deflicted from pink to tint purple. And this bump is usually painless and sometimes mild tender. After times pass away the nodule may change into an ulcer (open sore) and this open sore drains out a clear fluid. Usually the bumps occur along the lymph nodes and may last for years if left untreated.

Causes of Sporotrichosis

As we discussed earlier, it is caused by the fungus named sporothrix schenckii. The condition occurs when the spores of this fungus are forced into the skin with the sharp stick or rose thorn or the infection may occur with the direct contact of fungus to the unbroken skin. Rarely a person may catch the fungus  with contact to the colts, dogs or horses. And very uncommonly this fungus will be ingested or inhaled and lead to the infection in other parts of the body rather than the skin.

Diagnosis of Sporotrichosis

It is must to diagnose this condition as it may mimic any other skin infection also and it is must to differentiate it from other skin infections to cure the condition with proper treatment. Usually a biopsy of skin nodules is done and must differentiate from other infections such as cowpox, herpes, leprosy and many other skin infections that are confused with the symptoms of  sporotrichosis.

Ayurvedic view of Sporotrichosis

According to Ayurveda sporotrichosis it can be correlated to dadru kushta, generally kushta is considered as all types of skin diseases. So the sporotrichosis skin disease is correlated to the dadru kushta (it is the skin disease caused by the fungus). It is caused by the dosha vitiation due to various environmental factors. Kushta is generally of two types- kshudra kushta and maha kushta and Dadru kushta comes under kshudra kushta. According to acharya charaka dosha predominance in dadru kushta is kapha and pitta and is characterised by kandu (itching sensation), raga (redness), pidaka (nodules), mandal (circular patches) and udgatama (elevated edges). Which means in dadru kushta there is circular elevated nodule-like formation that occurs on skin with redness and itching sensation. Further let’s discuss the Ayurvedic treatment of sporotrichosis.

Ayurvedic management of Sporotrichosis

As we read earlier, according to Ayurveda sporotrichosis is correlated to dadru kushta and the dosha predominance in this condition is kapha and pitta dosha. The treatment according to Ayurveda must be to balance pitta and kapha dosha.
