Ayurveda, the ocean of knowledge about life, is an eternal science. The aim of Ayurveda is to maintain the health of Swasth Purush and also to cure the Vyadhi of Atura Purush1. But being an eternal science, its principles and theories are as useful as these were years back. Now days in developing countries like India, man has to compete for good economic status. In order to get such desired lifestyle, one has to face continuous busy and stressful life. These are also supplemented by fast food, tinned food (Adhyashana, Viruddhashan), leading to irregular dietary habits. All these factors including poor hygiene are predominant to develop chronic diseases, skin diseases, and kshudraroga like Padadari. Padadari is one of the commonest & most negligible diseases2. It is observed that people are least bothered about their feet though feet bear the whole body weight. In India 80 % of population live in rural area. Most of them work in farms in wet soil and water also. So incidence of cracking the skin of the foot is very common. Poor people ignore this problem due to lack of consciousness about foot care or may be due to costly drugs.
