Ayurveda believes health is managed by 3 components i.e. pitta, Vata, and Kapha dosha. The type of skin that a person has also depended on which of these is predominant. Accordingly, in people where pitta is dominant, it is warm to the touch and more prone to breakouts, moles, and freckles.

In people where Vata is dominant, the skin is thin and remains cool, gets dehydrated easily, and is easily affected by dry weather. In people with Kapha dominance, the skin is thick and greasy and is more tolerant of sun exposure.

Allergy is when the body responds adversely to a component that might have reached the system either through air, food, or contact. Various substances cause allergies and with most allergies, skin rashes are common, can be of mainly 4 types:

  1. Contact dermatitis: When the skin comes in touch with an allergy-causing agent, the skin breaks out into a rash. The inducing agent could be rubber, chemicals, metals, pets, etc.
  2. Bites and stings: When insects such as bees or other insects sting or bite, the surrounding area develops a rash.
  3. Warm weather: When the weather is too warm, there is a prickly heat effect, which produces a rash.
  4. Food induced: When certain food items like peanuts or eggs are consumed, some people develop a skin rash.

Whatever the reason, the mode of management would be to try to achieve a balance between the three components. To balance between them Ayurveda treatment can be helpful to treat skin rashes.
