Ayurvedic Treatment of Skin Diseases

Skin is the largest organ of human body that is involved in absorption and excretion of many substances by which it maintains our body temperature. Skin has seven layers according to Ayurveda and involvement of various layers causes different skin disease. Although topical application of oils and creams improve symptoms temporarily but they do not reach to deeper layers of skin.

So root cause of skin diseases still remains uncured. Ayurvedic treatments are based on removal of root cause of skin disease.
