Insufficient Evidence for:

Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of wafer ash for these uses.

Contact with the skin can cause the skin to become extra sensitive to the sun. This might increase the risk of getting sunburned and developing skin cancer. If you take wafer ash, wear sunblock and protective clothing outside, especially if you are light-skinned, and stay out of the sun as much as possible.
