Despite serious safety concerns, people take taumelloolch for painful conditions such as migraine and other headaches, nerve pain, muscle and joint pain (rheumatism), sciatica, and toothache. They also take it for uncontrolled bleeding (hemorrhage) and nosebleeds.
Some people use taumelloolch for infections such as "blood poisoning," leprosy, and meningitis.
Other uses include treatment of tumors, cancer, cysts, dizziness, eczema, gangrene, sleeplessness, movement disorders, difficulty controlling urination, stomach cramps, and colic.
Taumelloolch is sometimes applied directly to the skin in a warm compress (poultice) to treat skin diseases and broken bones and to draw out splinters.
