Literary Review on Yuvanpidika / Acne Vulgaris
Dr. Ankita Parihar
Abstract: Appearance is an important factor in social and emotional functioning. When people first meet each other, it will often be their appearance and mostly their face, which draws attention. The patients of skin diseases are more prone to experience physical, emotional and socio-economic embarrassment in the society due to disfigured appearance. Skin diseases these days are common and troublesome and one of such disease is Yuvan Pidika which comes under kshudra rogas. In Ayurveda kshudra rogas are mentioned in different classical texts and it is named so because it is not a serious or life threatening disorder but it has cosmetic effects in the life of a person. Acne ruins beauty and in some, it scars for life. Acne has a profound impact on the quality of life, on the psychological development, and on the carrier prospects.
