Teazle is an herb. The roots are used to make medicine.
People take teazle for small wounds and a skin condition called psoriasis. It is also put on the skin to treat arthritis.
Don’t confuse teazle (Dipsacus fullonum) with boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum), which is also called teasel.
How does it work?
There isn’t enough information available to know how teazle might work.
Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...
- Small wounds.
- Other conditions.
Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).
The appropriate dose of teazle depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for teazle. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
