Snaayuka Chikitsaa

B. R., Y. R. (Uttaraardha)

Dosha are aggravated in S`haakhaa to form S`hotha like Visarpa.

The S`hotha gets ruptured. The Snaayu (muscular tissue) at the place is dried. Thus, a worm comes out of it, which is white colored, which comes out of the wound slowly. If it gets 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. If this worm breaks then it causes Sankocha or Khanjataa in the limbs. This disease is generally related to (Sootra Krimi) Guinea worm disease.

The line of treatment is similar to Visarpa.

Saamaanya Chikitsaa:

The Saktu Pin`d`a should be made of buttermilk and should be applied over wound so as to expel the Sootra Krimi.
