  14. can we consume it with milk or water ? my doctor has recommended this for internal healing if any. But it has written that it is for external use only. Plz clear my doubt.

    • It is partially useful but it is not exactly meant for eczema treatment.
      It is more useful in the treatment of non healing wounds, as an anti-septic cream, also useful in infected hemorrhoids, sinuses, fistula in ano etc.
