Imupsora Ointment is a comprehensive therapy, systemic as well as topical, for the treatment of Psoriasis. Glycosides in Rubia cordifolia exhibit keratolytic activity, anthraquinones, and triterpenes help in immune modulation while other phytoconstituents act as antiseptics and antibacterials. Curcuminoids of Curcuma longa have anti-inflammatory and antipruritic properties. Picrorhiza kurroa exerts UV-potentizing action. Fumaric acid in Fumaria officinalis reduces epithelial proliferation. The antioxidants of Triphala and Hemidesmus indicus help in restoration of skin texture (smoothing of cracked, painful epidermis). Bitters of Tinospora cordifolia improve immune-competence while Ocimum sanctum has anxiolytic and euthymic (‘mood normalizing’) activity.
Usage: In severe symptoms during intermittent flare-ups. To improve the cosmetic appearance of lesions on visible sites viz. scalp, elbow, forearm etc. It provides predictable anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory & antibacterial action.
