  1. Sir, Does this medicine cure psoriasiis? Actually doctor suggested me to take khadirarista, mahamanjista kashayam daily 3 times after food.Are there any side effects? Somebody told me that skin becomes tan. Is it true? Please guide me. Thanks in advance.

    • This does not have any side effects. It is widely used in the treatment of psoriasis.
      The medicine combination that your doctor has suggested is very good. Please continue.
      Trust your doctor more than “”somebody”.
