In this study an effort has been made to evaluate the Dadrughna karma (Antifungal activity) of the oil prepared from Dadrughna (Cassia alata Linn) leaves. Materials and methods: In the present study, action of Dadrughna (Cassia alata Linn) patra taila on Dadru kushta was evaluated in 32 subjects who were treated with Dadrughna patra taila as an external application twice a day for 30 days and follow up was done on 45th day. Assessment was done for subjective parameter-itching and objective parameters-distribution of lesion, severity of inflammation, extent of lesion.
