Watermelon Frost 西瓜霜

In our family's first aid kit, we have a little canister called watermelon frost. It is typically used to cure oral cavity since I was a little kid. It's a kind of traditional Chinese herbal medicine. Besides effective in treating oral cavity, this herbal remedy is also use to soothe sore throat, toothaches, or to relief minor burn and cuts. One small bottle (powder form) costs for RM1, can be easily found in any Chinese medicine shop.

Watermelon frost is now available in either powder form, lozenges or spray. It contains ingredients like watermelon rind, Rhizoma Belamcandae, Bulbus Fritillariae Cirrhosae, Radix Sophorae Tonkinensis, Mentholum , Indigo Naturalis, and Borneolum.

I applied 2 to 3 times a day on my tongue the other day when I had minor ulcer. The ulcer recovered immediately on the next day. It proves to be cheap and effective.
