Four hundred skin patients complaining of 'sense of heat' (in short S 0 H) were thoroughly studied regarding their constitution, temperament. disease, degree of S 0 H, eating habits, etc. Eighty consecutive patients attending the skin OPD were taken up to see the incidence of S 0 H in the skin patients. Two series of 400 and 90 patients were studied for their dietary habits. Non sattvic food habits and those with worrying, brooding nature are more iron to S 0 H and skin allergies. Sattvic food usually consists of simple, wholesome, fresh, non-pungent foods like milk, butter, fresh fruits, barley, bananas, almonds and vegetables like torai, parwal, karela and green dal. Pathogenesis, etiology and therapeutic approach are discussed.
