Its used for skin infections all the time. Its one of the best for boils. Take all the pills the dr ordered. Don't stop if the boils go away, they will come back. Have you tried putting hot soaks on the boils? The one side effect that most people get is diarrhea. That can be prevented by taking probiotics or eating yogurt while you're on it.
