Advice & Tips: as this treqatment is for a seperate disease from MS, I cannot comment on its effects at helping with anything MS related. I also have Hidradenitis Suppurativa, this is the cause of the boils as it is an inflammatory skin disease. for this it was quite effective at keeping the boils at bay, but has not rid me of an underarm one which still persists.
