Acne vulgaris is a chronic skin disease that comes about mostly in adolescent. It is identified by both inflammatory (papules, pustules, and nodules) and noninflammatory (comedones, open and closed) lesions. In the Ayurvedic classics, Mukhadushika is mentioned under Kshudra Rogas, which is declared that it transpires in young age, and its signs and symptoms are similar to those of acne vulgaris. In the Ayurvedic classics, Mukhadushika is mentioned under Kshudra Rogas, which is stated that it occurs in young age and its manifestations are similar to those of acne vulgaris. In Ayurveda, it is mentioned that Mukhadushika occurs due to the vitiation of Vata, Kapha, and Rakta having the Shalmali thorn like thick or hard painful eruptions, which are impregnated with Meda. Vamana karma is indicated for the treatment of Mukhadushika. This is a single case study on the effective management of Mukhadushika. Treatments included are Deepana, Pachana with Chitrakadi Vati and Musta Choorna, Shodhananga Snehapana with Tiktak Ghrita and Vamana Karma (therapeutic emesis) with Madanphala Yoga. After the completion of Vamana Karma (therapeutic emesis), a significant relief in signs and symptoms of Mukhadushika was observed. On the account of result acquired, it can be deduced that Vamana Karma (therapeutic emesis) with Madanphala Yoga can be used as an effective treatment for Mukhadushika and improve the quality of life in the patients of Mukhadushika.
