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.

Am discontinuing use after 35 doses.

Difficult to take on an empty stomach and avoid taking the calcium I need. My outbreaks have gotten worse; but it did clear up the acne that recently started. It has dried out my face and destroyed my nails.
