Turmeric is a yellow-coloured spice, often used as a natural dye. It is quite known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

But when applying the homemade medicine to the pet, Supamas had an unexpected result: the animal ended up being the color of the spice.

According to Supamas, the infection seems to be disappearing after the unusual treatment with turmeric, the yellow color, however, is taking longer to fade.
