Hi. Petty Spurge grows to about 30cm high. In appearance it looks similar to chickweed and scarlet pimpernal. It is important to be able to identify the plant. When a part of the plant is broken off, it oozes a white sap. This white sap is very corrosive. The white sap is applied to skin cancers, sunspots and warts. It is applied everyday to the affected area until a scab appears and then sloughs off. It must be applied to the exact area, if it gets on non affected skin, it will burn the skin. If you want, you can apply petroleum jelly or calendula onitment on the surrounding skin before applying the white sap to the affected area. Keep the sap away from the eyes. It can harm vision and cause extreme irratation. Petty Spurge (radium weed) is a very effective treatment.
Have a lovely night. Love, Peace and Harmony to you all. Lesley.
