An infusion of the entire plant is used as a wash for sores and rashes[5]. The milky latex is applied to warts in order to remove them[5]. This requires constant applications over a period of weeks for it to be effective[K]. A poultice made from the latex is applied to sores[5].

Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a greenhouse. The seed usually germinates in 2 - 6 weeks at 15°c[6]. As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick them out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer or late in the following spring. Division with care in spring[7]. The plants do not like a lot of root disturbance so it is best to pot up the divisions and keep them in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are established.
