Bhallataka (Semecarpus anacardium Linn.) is a drug mentioned under Upavisha varga belonging to Anacardiaceae family. It is known to produce potential and sometimes life-threatening anaphylaxis. The utility of Agada yogas in cases of hypersensitive allergic responses due to contact, particularly urushiol-induced contact dermatitis, is magnified in this case report. A 23-year-old male patient with clinical presentation of blisters associated with burning sensation and itching over both the hands with a history of contact with marking nut tree is presented here. The case was treated with Ayurvedic approaches and formulations such as Vibhitaki twak (bark of Terminalia bellirica Linn.), Kottamthagaradi agada, Bilwadi agada, Punarnavasava, and Avipattikara churna, which gave a successful and satisfactory result within a short span of time.
