Kikkisa is Tridoshaja Vyadhi clinically characterized by burning, itching, stretch marks on the body particularly on the abdomen, thighs and breast region. It is usually found in the second trimester of pregnancy particularly in the seventh month due to the overstretching. It can be correlated with Striae gravidarum from modern science. It is the major problem of modern cosmetic conscious era, where more than 90% of the women suffer from this condition. It makes much psychological distress to the women. Considering the above facts, for the present study 64 patients were selected for clinical study, out of which 57 patients completed the course of treatment and were randomly divided into three groups. Each group was further divided into two sub-groups i.e. preventive and curative. In group A, 10 gm of Savarnakara Ghrita was given twice a day for oral administration for two months. In group B, Savarnakara cream in sufficient quantity was given for local application twice a day for two months. In group C, wheat flour capsule (500 mg) was given twice with Krishna Mruttika Lepa twice a day for two months. Better therapeutic response had been observed in Group B than Group A. In Group C, the condition of most of the patients started deteriorating. It was found that therapy is more effective in preventive group than in curative group.
