Having had 3 outbreaks in the last 20 years, 70% of my body affected. The last outbreak in 2017 the NHS was a waste of time. Went private and was put on Daximune ( lots of side affects and need to be monitored for blood pressure and liver function) I coped well and this treatment is a 100% within 3 weeks totally clear. Still on the tablets but reduced dosage and hopefully will stop within 3 weeks. Also the doctor I was under was very very positive regarding new treatments. The treatment is costing around £300 per month but nearer been so happier when you have clear skin

Hi yes the drug is a form of ciclosporin but worked wonders for me. Started off on 400gm ( very high dose) then after 4 weeks half the dose. If you are fit and healthy this will work for you. This treatment may not be available on the nhs but if you get referred privately they have so many new treatments available ps some can cost £10000 but at least you will be happy and clear
