elephant skin used as traditional cure for eczema

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

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
