Treatment for Eruptive Syringoma in Ayurveda

All over the human body sweat glands are present, most numerous on armpits, forehead, soles of feet and palms. The sweat mostly consists of water and some amount of salts. The main function is to maintain the body temperature. Sweat glands are generally of two types and occur only in mammals. One is eccrine sweat glands, controlled by a sympathetic nervous system helpful in regulating body temperature. When internal temperature of our body gets raised, this eccrine glands secrete water then heat is removed by evaporation and another one is apocrine sweat glands mostly associated with our hair follicles secrete a fatty sweat into the gland tubule continuously. Eruptive syringoma is a rare type of syringoma that means benign adnexal tumour of eccrine sweat glands. Let's discuss it in detail!
