Signs and symptoms; clinical manifestation of disease; sight
Signs, marks or scars caused by disease or disorders in the skin or any bodily organ in particular. (Look under Ayurveda Skin Care for more information on this topic).
<em>Rupa</em>, or the symptoms of a disease, indicate the actual onset of the manifestation process. When<em>rupa</em> appears, the disease becomes more pronounced with obvious and clearly defined symptoms. The<em>rupa</em> can be considered the advanced form of the warning signs (<em>purva rupa</em>). The severity and number of symptoms present provide the doctor with indications of physical impact, the possibility of cure and the length of time healing may take.
