Management of Venous Stasis Dermatitis with Dhanvayas as a local application – A case study
Lower limb dermatitis (stasis dermatitis) is a common consequence of dermal changes secondary to chronic venous impairment. The skin becomes erythematous, scaly and pruritic. Earlier signs, such as prominent superficial veins and pitting ankle oedema, are well known. Early recognition of signs and appropriate diagnosis can lead to timely treatment that can prevent painful complications, such as leg ulcers.
Here we report of two patients suffering from sequel of venous Stasis Dermatitis; pruritus and serous discharge; treated with local application of Dhanvayas paste once a day and resulting in complete remission of lesions.
