Stinging nettle has long been used as a treatment for the pain of arthritis and gout, for anemia, allergies and urinary problems or as a topical treatment for eczema, insect bites and painful muscles.

As a mild diuretic, it may be beneficial for urinary conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia, as it decreases residual volume and increases urine flow.

Nettle also may help prevent seasonal allergies, or improve symptoms such as sneezing and itching caused by allergic rhinitis.
