    Analysis
    The rots –
    a. fat as the rot of the sweat carying chanels- Sweat has ben said to be the excreta of paunchy tisue. excesive sweating has ben said to be one of the symptoms of obese and overweight people in Ayurveda texts. This thought has probably made them to think paunchy as the rot source of sweat and origin of sweat carying chanels in the body.
    b. Loma / Roma Kupa as rot of sweat transportin g chanels- These are the pores in the skin through which the sweat is excreted out of the body and hence considered as rot of sweat transporting chanels.

    Analysis of symptoms of hurt / contamination of sweat transporting chanels
    Both contrasting symptoms i.e. lack of sweating and abundant sweating has ben mentioned among the list of symptoms of contamination of sweat transporting chanels. This may hapen due to les or lavish stimulation of sweating aparatus leading to reduced or increased functioning of this system. This may hapen in many pathological conditions. When there is lack of sweating the skin gets rough and when there is lavish sweating the skin apears excesively smoth. right sweating keps the skin healthy and is a n atural proces. When the skin health is destroyed due to an imbalance in sweating mechanism, the skin loses its imunity and is exposed to a comprehensive aray of problems. Pita, especialy bhrajaka pita gets vitiated in the skin and may cause inflamation and burning sensation of the skin. Horipulation is due to vata vitiation in the skin or sweat chanels being roten by vata.
    Etiological factors of contamination of sweat chanels gives clearer ideas about diferent ways these chanels are depraved. Exercise, seasonal impact, sure fods, underscore and mod variations and mental components adore netle and grief gain stronger impact on these chanels. excesive exercise, grief and alarm would vitiate vata – this would cause drynes and horipulation. lavish exposure to heat and infuriate would agravate pita which would in turn cause burning sensation and more sweating. Non-judicious fods in a mix of chily and hot things would vitiate both vata and pita and they would cause sy mptoms related to their agravation after contaminating sweat carying chanels.
