The Daridagh (Thermal arsenic water) Balneological Hospital

Daridagh arsenic thermal water situated  15 km away from the  north - east  ofJulfa district is of   therapeutic importance of healing skin-veneral  diseases. Itching , impetigo, and piodermia can be examples for  these kinds of diseases. One should take several baths with  Daridagh water for the treatment of these diseases.  The duration of treatment seances is  different.

The heating degree of Daridagh thermal arsenic water coming  from the source is 520 C. But the temperature of the water to the treatment baths is between 37 or 39 degrees. Daily output of Daridagh thermal water is more than other existing therapeutic water sources. To be more exact daily output of Daridagh arsenic water source reaches  450.000. The best  among arsenic waters is  the one containing the mixture of alkaline and salt. All these features make Daridagh water take the first place not only in the Caucasus but also in the world among other arsenic waters. For instance, the most famous one among the same kind of the waters is Renkago and Leviko in Italy and Lya Bur Bul in France. Daridagh water is different compared to them. The level of arsenic in Renkago/Italy in comparison with Daridagh is  more  but its composition is not alkaline,it is not absorbed sufficiently by human body and does not give necessary curative effect. There was not  any health resort or hospital in the arsenic  water area until the middle of XX century, though  Daridagh water source had existed since XV century. A hospital with 5 bath capacity was first built in 1976.

A medical corps meeting international standards was built on the basis of socio-economic development of the state program in 2005. At present 2 new medical corps are being  used  in Daridagh. There are wide conditions and opportunities for medical aids in the corps. It’s possible to serve 25 or 30 patients during an hour in the corps.
