I was doing research on this site for autoimmune disease and mycoplasma treatment and decided to try borax protocol. I took 1/4 TSP borax dissolved in one liter distilled water for 5 days a week for months. I never got a new HS boil after taking the first drink the first day! It took me about six weeks to heal the ones I already had, but it's been 18 months with no more boils, not a single one. I still drink maintenance dose of borax, but only because I feel all around better when I do. Good luck!
