This stuff WORKS. I was very hesitant to try it but after her dermatologist kept boasting about it, I had to give it a shot. I started seeing results about 2 weeks after 2x daily use. It works more quickly on smaller lesions. I think the key is diligence and patience. We’re about 5 weeks into using this and my daughters lesions are almost gone. I always apply twice a day, sometimes 3 times if we have the time. I highly recommend at least trying this for 3-4 before claiming it doesn’t work. It seems to dry the lesions out leaving behind a very dark scab and then they’re gone.
