Rājayakṣman (राजयक्ष्मन्) refers to “consumption” and is a synonym of Śoṣa.—Śośin (“suffering from desiccation”) has been paraphrased by lus skyem gyur, lit. “having become thirsty as to the body”. Śoṣa serves as a synonym of rājayakṣman (“consumption”) which is called “desiccation” on the ground that it desiccates the elements (rasādiśoṣaṇac choṣaḥ III.5.3). Hemādri offers mukhaśoṣa (“xerostomia”) as an alternative interpretation, quoting Suśrutasaṃhitā IV.24.24:—“(Betel is) not good for those affected with hemorrhage, pulmonary rupture and consumption, thirst, and stupor, for those who are rough, weak, and drunk, (and) for those suffering from xerostomia”.
