Comfrey root (Symphytum officinale)The comfrey can be used externally to heal wounds which helps to form properly the scar tissue. But it needs attention when the wound is deep, because the quick healing externally without having healed deeper could lead to abscess formation. It is beneficial for chronic varicose ulcers.

The University of Maryland Medical Center says children, the elderly, pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid using comfrey in any form.
Don’t mix comfrey with medications that are hard on your liver, i.e. acetaminophen, and avoid using it with other herbs “known” to cause liver problems, such as kava, skullcap, and valerian.
