As humans, we often encounter injuries after falling down or from a slip. Often, immediate treatment is required to relieve the intense pain.

In this article we bring you a traditional treatment that can be easily prepared at home. The local name of the medicine is called “Ruggalu beys”.


Items needed

5 g “dhon beys”

5 g “habaru”

1 large “arolhi” / Black Myrobalan

1 “esma” / Strychnos Potatorum

How to prepare

Grind the medicine along with 1-2 egg yolk until the mixture becomes smooth.

How to use

Apply the mixture evenly on the affected area, and wrap it with a thin layer of cotton. Apply a second layer of the mixture on top of cotton until the cotton is sticking onto the skin. Leave it on until it dries and comes off on its own. Avoid water contact within this period.
