I don't have any information on this, but I can tell you that there have been several people posting that it has worked and several others who have heard of it and have been asking the same types of questions

Does anyone else have experience using this?

It gave me a rash and bad itching. Took a low dose of Prednisone to get rid of it. I would say NO !
