Psoriasis is a common skin disease affecting about 1-2% of general population. The word psoriasis is derived from the Greek word "Psora" and "Iasis". Psora means Itch or scale and lasis means condition. Acharya Charak has described the involvement of Vata and Kapha in Ekkushtha. In the present study Ekkushta is compared with psoriasis due to its maximum resemblance with it. The trial drugs in the present study are Pathyadhya Vatak and Vidangadi Lepa which have not been studied on Psoriasis till date as per our Knowledge. The effect of Placebo was also assessed to understand the Psychosomatic nature of the disease. The results of combination of Pathyadaya Vatak and Vidangadi lepa were highly encouraging.
