I had an abscess that came up under my arm that was a red hard knot with red streaks that eventually were all around it. It was extremely painful. I had it lanced and packed by a doctor, and took a round of antibiotics and it healed quickly, however, I thought I was getting another one so I started on this product. Within 1 day, not only did the additional knot disappear, but the other place continued to heal very fast and I have had no other issues since then. I also am still taking Acidophilus Pearls along with it and my regular vitamin regimen.
