Plantains are members of banana family, try banana peel or plantain weeds on the skin.

Edward E. Shook, a reputed Herbalist tells the following story, “A lady whose arm was previously amputated due to abscessing (from a bee sting) came to see me…outside my door there was some plantain growing. I picked some of the leaves and gave them to the woman telling her to wash and crush them, make a poultice and apply it to the part where she had been stung. The next day this lady returned to thank me…the hand was entirely well.”
