Bhagandara, Fistula in Ano, Guggulu, Haridra, Kshara Sutra, Snuhi Ksheera


Corrosive or caustic thread is referred to in the Kshara sutra. Because Kshara does the work of incision, puncture, and scarification to relieve Tridosha derangements and uniformly affect the sick part to which they are administered, it is regarded as superior to all surgical and parasurgical procedures. Tridoshaghna, Saumyata, Dahana, Pachana, Darana, Katuka, Ushna, Tikshna, Vilayana, Ropana, Shoshana, Stambhana, Lekhana, and Krimighna are among the attributes possessed by Kshara. Snuhi Ksheer, Apamarga Kshara, Haridra powder, and Barbour Linen Thread No. 20 are the ingredients used to prepare the Kshara sutra. Although the normal Apamarga Kshara sutra is effective in treating fistula in ano, there are issues with its preparation and administration that should be noted. Due to these issues, this thread needs to be modified going forward. Snuhi latex is one of the key elements of this thread. The preparation of the thread is complicated by the latex. If not utilized right away, it coagulates. Summer collection is more challenging; therefore, just a few seasons are suitable for preparation. The fact that people experience excruciating agony while the thread is being applied is another drawback. In a rare instance, the severity is so great that patients stop their therapy. Numerous studies have been conducted to find solutions to these issues. The focus of the researchers is to find medications with superior effects and acceptability to Snuhi latex and Apamarga Kshara. These medications ought to be easier to obtain in bulk, less irritating (Sheeta veerya), possess vranashodhak and vrana ropana qualities, be antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and have extra therapeutic effects.
