this is Dr. David

who diagnosed you? your MD doctor?

what was the bug? was it scabies skin infection?

did your doctor start you on treatment?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No scabies. First Lamisil for toes then skin results cultured aerobic acinetobacter llwoffii. I ordered the results cause my case fell through cracks and nobody seems to care. My primary jyst wrote a script for bactrim and physically i feel like i am drained of any energy and i sleep eat and sweat. the drugs dont seem to do much and my blood is really oily looking . Ive been scared to death and really this is weird but my mouth tastes metallic and my hair is like magnetic feeling too. I am about ready to throw in the towel. Nobody is listening and i even called health and human services. Salt just seems to gather on my head and skin and hair. Some kind of salty substance that pops when iched on my scalp. No wonder i m scared.

bactrim is an antibiotic which kills bacteria
