These are about 1/8" long and cream-colored. Moxi sounds like powerful stuff if it made you sleep about 24 hours! I don't know where I would even put that into my schedule. Mine are also in the face, lower legs, and also feet. My pcp (who has a genuine interest in tropical disease) told me he used to practice in Nicaragua and moxi was the preferred medicine there. I'll try the topical combo tonight, and mull the idea of taking moxi orally. I'm a little concerned, because in 4 days I need to undergo sedation, and don't know if moxi in my system would be a good idea or not.
