Mixed with warm milk it is said to be beneficial in the common cold. The juice of the fresh rhizome is used as an anti-parasitic for many skin affections. Externally, it is applied to ulcers, and a paste made from the powdered rhizome with lime is a remedy for inflamed joints. A decoction of the rhizome relieves the pain of purulent ophthalmia.
