I did use it twice for my very sore throat. After using it for 2 days I was o.k. It works fantastic. I did not use prescribed Amoxicillin 875 mg. Pharmacist at Apple Pharmacy in Englewood,Fl advised me to buy it.

This does not burn like other topicals. It is good for bug bites and cuts. Great to use on children who do not like things that burn or sting. Have been using it since I was a child. I am now 66 and still using it.

My family has used ST37 for 3 generations. It is especially great for burns and takes away the pain and promotes healing. It is the first thing I use for myself and my animals.
