Ayurvedic treatment for Lichen sclerosis

This is a complicated disorder when the patient suffers a lot and keep applying various steroid creams and does not get relief. 

The inflamed area gets worse and worse and the skin becomes thinner and thinner leading to more itching, scratching and burning sensation. 

The sexual intercourse can also be very painful and sometimes can cause bleeding. 

According to Ayurveda, the treatment of Lichen sclerosis is focussed mainly on purifying the blood. 
According to aetiopathylogy as per Ayurveda-  It is  Vata in Rakta with Pitta imbalance ( especially Bhrajaka pitta) 

The reason is consumption of too much sour, salty, dry, stale food. Frozen, packaged food, packaged sour juices, late night sleep and consuming cold water or cold drinks along with the food.

The Vata and pitta gets vitiated and vata dries up the place which is weaker in the body. This is called "Kha-Vaigunaya concept" in Ayurveda. 

The weakest part is affected and the dosha accumulate there and affect the "Dushya" which is Rakta and Skin (Tvak) 

The treatment is pacifying Vata, purifying the Rakta ( Blood) and Pacifying the Pitta. 

Avoid - Sour fruits, Salty, pungent food, SUGAR, Alcohol, Non-Veg diet- Red meat, beef, pork,  Cheese, Milk and Milk products, Chillies, Spicy food, Beer, Wine, Smoking, Yogurt, Pineapples, Lemons, Kiwis, Biscuits, Salted snacks, Chips, wafers etc. Also avoid white flour and Sugar. Avoid Tomatoes, Pizza and Pasta and diet rich in Cheese. 

Advised -  Consume more vegetables like zuchini, Corn, Long gourd, bitter gourd, round gourds, pumpkin. Pumpkin is the best. 
Coconut water is excellent. Drink everyday. 
Turnips are good, Carrots, Radish, Beetroot, Cabbage, Peas, Potatoes are ok ( Don't take fried potatoes or french fries )
