Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
how old are you?
can you upload a clear jpg photo of this ring shaped skin sore?
do you see the "add file" link?
no, I don't see it yet.
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?
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.
let me know if you have other questions.
