Comment:
Experienced my most severe outbreak ever 30 days into treatment. Entire nose became infected and very tender to the touch with puss discharge at the tip. Redness with a few spots appeared on both sides of the nose. This was preceded by a faint redness and persistent tingling sensation over the entire upper chest area that continued and intensified. Am discontinuing use after 35 doses.
