Herbal Remedies for Behcet's Disease - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Treatment

Behcet's Disease

Behcet's disease is a rare disorder that causes blood vessel inflammation throughout the body. This disease affects mouth sores, eye inflammation, skin lesions and rashes as well as genital sores. The symptoms of Behcet disease varies from person to person.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF BEHCET'S DISEASE?

The symptoms of Behcet Disease vary from person to person. It may disappear after some time and may recur on its own. The signs and symptoms generally depend on which parts of the body are affected.

The parts of the body commonly affected by Behcet Disease include:

  • Mouth: The most common symptom of Bechet Disease includes painful mouth sores that look similar to canker sores. These sores begin as raised, round lesions in the mouth which quickly turns into painful sores. These sores usually heal in 1-3 weeks.
  • Joints: Joint swelling and pain mostly affect the knees in people with Behcet’s disease. The mostly affected parts are ankles, elbows or wrists. Signs and symptoms may last 1-3 weeks.
  • Eyes: This disease may cause inflammation of the eyes also. This condition is known as uveitis. Uveitis causes pain, redness and blurred vision in people suffering from behcet’s syndrome but this condition may come and go.
  • Skin: Skin problems due to behcet’s syndrome can vary. Some people may develop acne-like sores on their bodies while symptoms in other people include red, raised and tender nodules on the skin.  
  • Digestive System: There are various digestive problems like abdominal pain and bleeding caused by behcet’s disease.
  • Brain: This disease may cause inflammation in the brain and nervous system that result in headache, disorientation, poor balance or stroke.
  • Vascular System: There is an inflammation of blood vessels like arteries and vessels that may occur in Behcet’s disease causing redness, pain, swelling in the pain and legs due to blood clot. An inflammation in the large arteries can lead to various complications such as narrowing or blockage of the blood vessel.
  • Genitals: People with behcet’s disease may develop sores on their genitals. These sores may occur on the vulva or on the scrotum. These sores are usually painful and may leave scars.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF BAHCET'S DISEASE?

The exact cause of behcet's disease is not known but it is considered as an auto-immune disorder. The body's own immune system mistakenly attacks its own healthy cells.

Several genes are also associated with this disease.

DIAGNOSIS OF BAHCET'S DISEASE

There are no specific tests that can definitely diagnose behcet's disease. The doctor relies primarily on the signs and symptoms to diagnose behcet's disease. The doctor may use other factors for the diagnosis. The classification criteria basically require that include the symptoms like mouth sores, genital sores, eye problems and skin sores.

TREATMENT OF BAHCET'S DISEASE

According to modern medicine, there is no cure for behcet’s disease. Treatment includes medications that control temporary flares in pain and inflammation. For chronic signs and symptoms, medicines are prescribed.

According to Ayurveda, Behcet’s disease is caused by the imbalance of Pitta dosha in the body.
