It is a common practice to treat people suffering from cold, cough and fever with Karpooravalli rasam.
It also treats boils and wound when applied as a paste.
Extensively used in treating chest congestion.
Applying Karpooravalli juice on both the sides of the forehead while having a severe head ache is very effective.
