The bark of malunggay (Moringa oleifera) is an effective remedy for wounds inflicted by poisonous fish such as stonefish, Bangkok catfish (hito) and, samaral (malaga Ilk).

Scrape bark of malunggay and make a poultice (soft moist mass spread over the wound). You may use cloth or bandage to keep it in place. Remove when pain subsides. Get medical attention if wound is serious.

Malunggay has antiseptic antimicrobial properties, and refreshing effect. 
Malunggay poultice is also used on minor wounds and skin disorders, it relieves pain and discomfort.
