Ayurvedic Management of Oral Thrush - A Case Report

Dr. Pooja Verma | Dr. D. B. Vaghela

Abstract: Background: Oral candidiasis also known as Oral thrush is a fungal infection of oral cavity caused by a fungus called Candida albicans. This fungus is normally found in oral cavity but when it overgrows due to some favourable conditions, it causes thrush. The symptoms of oral thrush can be correlated with Kaphaja Mukhapaka in Ayurvedic literatures. Materials and Methods: In the present study a 45 years female patient with symptoms of recurrent Oral thrush since 3-5 months was administered with local Pratisarana and Kavala therapy for 1 month. Result: Patient showed gradual improvement and reduction of the symptoms of oral thrush in a month. Also the patient was advised to follow the Pathya Ahara Vihara and avoid the Apathya Ahara Vihara. Results were appreciable with approx 90% relief. Conclusion: There are established treatments in the current science for Candidiasis, However despite of being so well-equipped many a times the current treatments fail to help the patients, some patients experience side effects of antifungal medications and symptoms occur recurrently so the Ayurvedic management was approached for easy and non side effective treatment.
