The above-ground parts are also used for seasonal allergies (hay fever) and osteoarthritis.

The above ground parts of stinging nettle are also taken by mouth for internal bleeding, including uterine bleeding, nosebleeds, and bowel bleeding. The above ground parts are also used for anemia, poor circulation, an enlarged spleen, diabetes and other hormone disorders, too much acid in the stomach, diarrhea, asthma, lung congestion, heart failure, rash, eczema, cancer, preventing the signs of aging,  wound healing, and as a general tonic.
