This has been described by Bhaava Prakaas`ha and Maadhava Nidaana.
Dosha are aggravated in S`haakhaa. They form S`hotha like Visarpa.
The S`hotha bursts out. The Snaayu at the place is desiccated. Thus, a worm comes out of it that is white coloured.
It comes out of the wound slowly. If it is cut, then there is increase of S`hotha.
If this worm comes out of the wound easily, the S`hotha is pacified quickly.
It may occur at some other place on the body. This is called as Snaayuka.
It is to be treated as per Visarpa.
If this worm breaks then it causes Sankocha or Khanjataa in the limbs.
This disease is generally related to Guinea worm disease.
Symptoms as per Dosha:
- Neela Varn`a
- Peeta Varn`a
- S`hveta Varn`a
- Prithu S`hotha
- Garimaa (Gaurava)
These symptoms are as per the combination of two Dosha.
There is redness, and Daaha.
