The Iranian Health Ministry said on Monday it had approved two medicines for women that contain garlic, which is widely used in Iran for treating a range of ailments.
The approval comes amid a crackdown on the garlic trade in Iran, which has been largely banned since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
The two new products are named Kabbaz and Tammuz.
Kabbaz is a type of garlic known for its antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antiviral properties.
Tammuthi is used for treating skin conditions, including psoriasis, psorcaemia, eczema and acne.
It is used to treat allergies and is also used in Ayurveda, a traditional Indian medicine that is practiced in Iran and several other parts of the world.
Both herbs have been approved in Iran since July.
