Oral ulcers, genital ulcers, inflammation in the eye and skin lesions are some of the outward signs of this disease. Mouth rinses and other agents are recommended to reduce the pain of mouth sores.
Behcet's syndrome can involve inflammation of any area of the body including the arteries, veins, retina, brain, joints, skin and intestines. The Ayurvedic treatment of this condition focuses on treating immune dysfunction and controlling the presenting symptoms.

Local eye drops are used, containing Triphala, Haridra (Curcuma longa), Daruharidra (Berberis aristata), rose water and camphor.
