Hi @alm2019 that must be very confusing.

In regards to your question on the big 3, that would be rifampin, ethambutol and azithromycin. Are those the three antibiotics you may have to start? If so, here is a discussion on some side effects of those medications along with some info on how people take them: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/the-big-3-antibiotics-for-mac/

Fellow connect users @windwalker, @megan123 and @anniepie have experience with the Big 3 and may be able to offer support for you as you start these medications.

While we wait for others to join in on the conversation, what did you doctor tell you about using this for the hard skin? How long has this been going on?
