Eclipta prostrata
For skin problems, teething, thrush in children, and athlete’s foot, konngolala heads the list of treatments. The leaves are pounded or melted in water as a bath or mixed with lard and applied topically. For thrush, a boiled solution is used with magnesia to bathe the gums of teething children. Warmed or fresh, the leaves are rubbed on the foot for athlete’s foot.
