This herb is safe when used by adults topically but it can cause minor skin irritations for some people. If you have skin sensitivity, consult your doctor or physician before using the herb. In small doses, it is safe to take by mouth although this is not recommended because of its high levels of tannins. When used internally, I can cause stomach upset and large doses can lead to liver problems. If you are pregnant, it is very important to avoid taking witch hazel orally by all means. Topical applications have also caused allergic contact dermatitis in some users making it very important to use with care.
