this one comes from Myanmar but these practices can be regional
so they say that elephant skin can be burnt , then the ashes are mixed with coconut oil and used as a cream for eczema
the skin now sells for USD 5.25 per square inch
I am not medically qualified , but something with ash could easily irritate an already sore skin
how about using the coconut oil and some soothing herbs , leaving the elephants alone
getting elephant skin would have a higher risk of getting caught , it would be easier to get from domesticated animals
