Author(s): Mohammad Shamim Khan and Syed Shamsul Hasan Tariq
Abstract: Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is a common skin disease caused by Malassezia furfur, characterized by itchy red patches with flaky or greasy scales. Greek-o-Arab philosophers like Ali Bin Abbas Majusi (930-994 AD) and Ibn-e-Sina (980-1037 AD) have described it as Quba-e-Mutaqash’shira (desquamative dermatophytosis), a chronic variant. This article reports a case in which a 36 years old married male patient with scalp Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, was treated with Unani drugs; Tabeekh Fasaad-e-Khoon in the form of Joshanda (decoction) as oral administration, and Roghan Kamela as a topical application, to evaluate the efficacy of drugs. The patient has shown excellent and significant result just within 2 days of Unani treatment and finally all clinical characteristics of scalp Seborrhoeic Dermatitis completely evanesced, may be due to Musaffi-e-Khoon (blood purifier), Muhallil-e-Waram (anti-inflammatory) and anti-fungal potentials.
