Ayurveda is an oldest system of Indian medicine. In Ayurvedic classics, sharer sthan has given description about internal and external body features, out of these Sushruta samhitas sharer sthana has great anatomical importance hence it is said that sharire sushrut ashrestha. In sharirsthana, Acharya Sushrutahas mentioned five sensory organs (i.e. Dnyandriyas). Twacha (Skin) is one of the five dnyanendriyas (sensory organ) having its perception as sparshdnyan (touch sensation). According to Acharya Sushruta, twacha (skin) comprises seven layers and mentioned their respective diseases. Each layer has importance as it is location for specific vyadhi. Out of which fifth layer named as vediniis the location of visarpa as well as kushtha vyadhi. According to Vagbhat Twakvaivarnya (discoloration of skin) is called as kustha. Sushrutacharya describe two types of kushta, i.e. mahakushta (major incurable skin problem) and shudrakustha (miscellaneous minor skin diseases). Shudrakushtha further classified in various forms in which vicharchika is explained thoroughly. Modern science mentions the skin disorder Eczema found to have near about similar sign and symptoms as that of vicharchika.
