A Case Study of Tankan Bhasma (Anubhutyoga) in the Management of Darunaka (Dandruff)

Sakshi [65] | Shubha Kaushal [3]


Abstract: Dandruff, also known as Darunaka in Ayurvedic texts, is a widespread issue causing scalp desquamation and itching sensation. It is the mildest form of Seborrheic dermatitis and can cause aesthetic issues like itching, noticeable flakes, hair loss, and loss of confidence and socialization. A 19 - year - old female patient from Kurukshetra experienced scalp issues like itching, dryness, skin cracks, and hairfall. She was treated with Tankan Bhasma mixed with coconut oil twice a week, evaluating the improvement after therapy. A grading scale was developed to assess signs and symptoms of a drug, which was proven to be secure and efficient in reducing symptoms and enhancing scalp health.
