Normal perspiration is good for the body. However, excessive perspiration has a negative effect on the entire physical network. It takes away lots of water from the body. In such circumstances, the urine assumes a concentrated form. As a result, the patient experiences irritation in the urinary tract while passing the urine. This gives rise to the burning sensation. Hence, the patient should not be allowed to venture out into the sun or be exposed to excessive heat.
Ayurveda has two effective medicines to cure Nephritis. These are Suvarna vasanta malati and Punarnava mandoora.
