Im sorry to hear about your situation. However you cant get online prescriptions in the US, that is illegal as a doctor patient relationship has to be established in order to write a prescription. This can only be done by an in office visit or physical examination.

So the next best step here for you would be to visit a walk in clinic in your area, or even visit an urgent care center who would be happy to write you a prescription for ciprofloxacin or another antibiotic like bactrim if necessary.
