I just added it again
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

I see it

it looks like a skin infection like a staph or a MRSA skin infection or impetigo

you should see a doctor and get a skin culture to see what bacteria may be growing there

you may need special antibiotic creams and pills to help clear up the infection.

do you have health insurance to be able to see a doctor?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No I Dont have insurance
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

you can see a doctor at a local free medical clinic or university hospital

you should apply for www.healthcare.gov or medicaid in your state for insurance.

you can use neosporin on the area until you see a doctor.
