I knew that it was bet drug but before you even answer me after taking my deposit you company says pay 20 more you can get a answer faster. You guys got the hook in and just started asking for more money I can get any of that info free from my pdr and you should have told me before you took deposit that it could be over 2 hours for and answer. I agreed to 5.00. Deposite. Anything more will be disputed

Sorry for late reply.

Your satisfaction is our goal.It's your choice how much to pay.

We just want to help you.

You shouldn't take this medicine as this is not suitable for you.

As you have bacterial infection on leg so you can do some self care remedies to prevent further spreading of infection until you see a doctor.

Clean the site with betadine solution and then apply OTC Polysporin ointment and hydrocortisone cream 2-3 times a day.

Also take OTC Advil and Cetirizine which relieve pain,swelling,redness.

You should start multi-mineral & vitamin supplement.

Even elevate your leg.

If it's draining then Polysporin powder can be applied.Cover it with sterile bandage.

If it seems to be getting worse then visit ER.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
Your satisfaction is our goal.
