Causes of Skin Allergy
Skin allergy is the body’s severe reaction to one or further allergens. There are thousands of distinct allergens all around us, and almost any object in our environment can provoke an allergic reaction in someone (who is very sensitive). We can say that this type of response caused by improper or Asaatmya influences.
Similarly, there may be cases of seasonal or acquired skin sensitivities caused due to a reactive type toxin called Amavisha. The more dangerous counterpart of the toxin Ama will be, it creates due to faulty digestion. If Ama is left to continue to accumulate in the digestive tract, it can spread to other tissues (dhatus) and organs and wreak havoc.
The Ama interacts with the internal organs, tissues, and functions of the body (subdoshas) where if not cleaned out, it settles and develops a reactive poison called Amavisha. When an Asaatmya control or allergen interacts with the Amavisha, it can impair cell functioning and may display as rashes, discoloration, roughness or irritation.
Types of Skin Allergy
There are four main types of skin allergy, each caused by different allergens. Fortunately, there are many ways to relieve the symptoms. But in order to choose an appropriate treatment, it’s important to identify which type of allergy you have.
- Dermatitis (Twak shoth) : The Greek word ‘dermatitis’ means ‘inflammation of skin,’ it is caused by touching a certain substance. In most cases, the main symptom is a red rash, but it could be one of a number of allergens that causes it including metals, chemicals, rubber, plants and even pets.
- Eczema (Vicharchika) : According to Charaka Samhita, eczema is a condition where the skin erupts into angry red rashes and bumps, along with profuse discharge, extreme itching and often blue discoloration.
- Prickly heat (Pittaja masoorika) : Warm weather often causes the itchy red rash known as prickly heat. The exact reason is not known till date, but some people think it’s due to sweat getting trapped under the skin.
- Bites and stings (Keet dansh) : Irritation from insect bites and stings can be uncomfortable but reactions tend to be short-lived.
- Urticaria (Sheetapitta) : This type of allergy is often called nettle rash, because it comes up as an itchy red rash, raised in the middle. Confusingly, it has nothing to do with stinging nettles at all but is caused by eating a certain food, worms, infections or taking a particular drug.
- Fungal infections (Dadru) : Fungal infections are usually due to yeast (such as Candida or Malassezia furfur) or dermatophytes such as Epidermophyton, Microsporum and Trichophyton. Fungi usually take up residence in moist areas of the body where skin surfaces meet like between the toes, in the genital area and under the breasts. These infections only affect the topmost layer of the epidermis and do not penetrate deeper. If you suffer from recurrent fungal infections, please get tested for diabetes and/or HIV.
- Blisters (Visphota) : While blistering is most commonly known to occur when the skin is burnt, blisters can also result in skin conditions that are caused or worsened by allergens. For example, sufferers of eczema and contact dermatitis may experience skin blisters as one of the symptoms.
- Pruritus (Kandu) : Pruritus or itching is treated more as a symptom, precursor to a disease (purvarupa), complication (upadrava) or a symptom reflecting an incorrect prognosis (asadhya lakshana) of other systemic diseases. Thus, pruritus is likely to go away if the root problem is treated and cured.
