Acharya Sushruta mentioned two types of Vrana i.e. 1)Neeja 2)Agantuja. He also mentioned another two types are 1)ShuddhaVrana 2)Dushta Vrana. These are caused due to Vatadi Dosha prakopa ,Aghata ,Abhichara ,Abhishapa etc. Acharya Shushruta described the treatment for Dushtvrana,ShashtiUpakramas.VranaDhavan is one of them. As it is easy method of treatment and affordable to every patient ,the present study was planned to evaluate efficacy of TulsiKwathDhavan in comparison with proven drug i.e. EUSOL bath in Dushtvrana.
