Yes Persicaria barbata from me too.

The seeds are used in griping colic pain in Kalahandi area of Orissa
state whereas, the aerial parts possess antinociceptive, anti-
inflammatory and diuretic properties. Roots are used as an astringent
and cooling remedy. Decoction of leaves and shoots is used as a
stimulating wash for ulcers, acting as a good healer of the scarred
tissue. A paste of the root is used externally in the treatment of
scabies. (Source: Kirtikar and Basu, 1935 and others).

Regards,
Ritesh.
