Udardapraśamana (उदर्दप्रशमन) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as “curing urticaria”, and originally composed by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna IV. The name is derived from the words udarda, translating to “erysipelas”, and praśamana, translating to “pacifying” or “tranquillizing”. It is a technical term used throughout Āyurveda. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Tinduka (Diospyros melanoxylon), Piyāla, Asana (Terminalia tomentosa) and Arimedā (Acacia farnesiana). The collection of herbs named Udardapraśamana is one of the fifty Mahākaṣāya.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
