Benefits:   taken at a stage where puss filled blisters were swollen, ensured a quick and painless transition from this stage to a stage where blisters became dry. Not much effect for 5 days or so, however when the blisters did dry up they did so quickly and was not painful at all which is what i had expected. fairly easy to apply and good consistency for application.
Side effects:   None
Comments:   applied directly onto affected area 3 times a day. chose to apply generously and cover effected area with a bandage.
