Euphorbium MT is useful in gastro-intestinal irritation; chronic diarrhoea when accompanied with cerebral irritation and delirium. It has been used topically for cancer and has cured epithelioma, gangrene, pustular and eczematous eruptions. It is also useful for burning pain in bones, pain in limbs and paralytic weakness in the joints. Recent research has shown that the phytoconstituent resiniferatoxin exhibits its effects by interacting with TRPV1, a known pain sensing cation channel, thereby works like analgesics.
