Figwort is in the scrophulariaceae family, same as foxglove, and contains some mild cardiac glycosides which may potentiate heart medications, so it should be avoided if on heart medication, unless under the supervision of a professional herbalist.
The main traditional use for figwort is dermatological, where its action on the liver is regarded as useful for treating skin conditions. It is used as a poultice for treating wounds, burns, ulcers, and haemorrhoids, and the tincture or tea taken internally for chronic skin conditions such as eczema.
