By Nidana Doshas get aggravated and they get localised in the superficial layer of skin i.e., Avabhasini. Aggravated Kapha increases the Kleda to produce Swedaavaran and also provide suitable environment for the development of Krimi in it (which is similar to that of pathology of Tinea versicolor). Tinea versicolor (Pityriasis versicolor) is superficial cutaneous fungal skin infection caused by fungus (Malassezia furfur). Raja Prapti is due to Vata diseases.
