The present study has been undertaken to unfold the hidden facts about the concept of Varna, to apply this concept in practical field and to assess the efficacy of Kanakatailam Cream (Varnaprasadana drug) and Manjishthadi Ghanavati in Tvakvaivarnya. Patients from OPD of Basic Principles, Dept. of IPGT & RA were selected and randomly divided into two groups. The patients in Group A were given Kanakatailam Cream for 60 days. Patients in Group B were managed with Manjishthadi Ghanavati for the same duration. The Nidanas (causative factors), Lakshana (signs & symptoms) etc. of the disease were observed carefully on the basis of specially prepared research proforma to get idea about the Samprapti of the disease. Assessment of Varnaprasadana was done on the basis of relief in the scores given to sign and symptoms of the Tvakvaivarnya according to their severity. In Group - A (Kanakatailam Cream Group) 32.73% improvement was found, which was statistically highly significant (<0.001) and in Group - B (Manjishthadi Ghanavati Group) 38.01% improvement was obtained which was also statistically highly significant (<0.001). Both the drugs Manjishthadi Ghanavati and Kanakatailam cream have shown better results in improving the colour and decreasing the intensity of the darkness of patches.
