Sep 5, 2013 (Started Aug 25, 2013)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Skin eruptions)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for eczema herpeticum)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 900 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I took this on top of Augmentin to try and help with secondary bacterial infection of eczema herpeticum. It had little discernible effect though it may have acted as a placebo as I was no longer concerned about possible staph infections. I was taking it when the eczema herpeticum skin eruptions (open sores) closed up.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
