I had cellulitis. It worked very well for that. The pain was gone within a day and the area was healed around day 4. However, it was about that time when I developed a burning sensation in my throat. It burned all day and even more a couple hours after taking this drug. This hurt more then the cellulitis did. I would not recommend its use to anyone!

Comment:
It worked very well for me. I had a severe infection on my left leg ( that prevented me from walking right) and my skin had developed this very large red hot bump. After only taking it for 24hr the swelling had gone down and i was able to walk better. I was fine by the end of one week i was taking 500mg 4 times a day.
