  1. Hello Dr. Hebbar,
    will massaging this oil over testicle help in relieving epididymitis and hydrocele ? If not is there any ayurvedic oil to give strength to nerves of testicles?

  2. It can be used for a very long period of time. Because it is used for external application, there is no side effects with its use. It usually shows results after 1 week of use.

  3. Dr. Hebbar & Dr. Shisir, I tried to click on above mentioned link. But the product not available. Pls suggest how to get this product and its useful. Thanks
