I am aware of this herb by the native name "Garudakkodi"
I was relieved a great lot by using this herb on my body skin.
Now,my only question is, if we have a skin problem on head, if we use this on our head, will we have any hair loss because of this? Please suggest.

Sriram. We do not know what is the exact skin problem you are suffering from ? What is the method of application of the herb for the problem.
Because, the dosage or method depends on the degree of severity of the disease also.

This herb has a constituent called aristolochic acid, this acid is known to cause Cancer and Kidney failure if used in larger amounts. All the herbs that have Aristolochic Acid ( AA ) are carcinogenic in nature. So, I would suggest that you do not use this anymore.
