Hi Wallace,

My name is***** and I will be assisting you this evening.

We are not able to prescribe on this site, but there are some other sites that have physician services with prescriptive authority that could help. Some of these sites have a one time fee of about $50 (much cheaper than the ER or urgent care) and can send prescriptions to your local pharmacy. Please let me know if you would like some suggestions. In addition to the Ibuprofen, I would also recommend trying Benadryl 50 mg by mouth every 6 hours and Neosporin ointment.

Awe man. I paid the $25 thinking yall could because it says yall are licensed pharmacist.
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 10 months ago.

I am a licensed pharmacist, but we cannot prescribe or dispense medication on this site.

If you need a refund, please let me know.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
please a refund would be great! because i am going to do another site that can prescribe . Also I've tried benadryl also in between. Thank u very much!

What is a good site that can help me
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 10 months ago.

No problem. We are a question and answer site and so customers may sometimes ask my advice on where to get a prescription online, in which case I would offer the information for a positive rating. I have spent some time researching the online physician service sites...not all of them are legit.

If you would like to end the conversation here, I can certainly have the moderator take over to process the refund. Just let me know how you would like to proceed.

i would like a refund. And i will definitely give you a positive review.
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 10 months ago.

I appreciate that:) The only thing is that a positive review indicates that you are satisfied with the service. If satisfied with the service, a refund is generally not in order. In other words, you are either happy (positive review) or unhappy (refund).

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I mean you tried to help me but i thought this site prescribed because it said licensed pharmacist but you cannot prescribe. Therefore i really didnt get the service i needed.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
i guess have the moderator take over for the refund process. Thanks again
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 10 months ago.

I totally understand. I am going to send your question to the moderator so that you can get your money back. Thanks for trying out the site, though. Please stop back anytime in the future if you ever need a quick answer from a professional:)

Ok . Do i stay on here? And wait for someone to contact me?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 months ago.
I'm a doctor. You might not need antibiotics. Can you attach a picture?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 months ago.
You might not even need to see a doctor. Im a medical doctor that can assist you. Do you want my help?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Possibly
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I was charged for a service earlier and am waiting on a refund bc i thought this site wrote prescriptions
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Where would i attach a pic?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 months ago.
You could email it to me. Or email to support @justanswer.com
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 months ago.
Let them know Dr Phil is looking for a pic
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 months ago.
Ok. I reviewed it. I think you definitely need antibiotics. This appears to be cellulitis or a skin infection.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 10 months ago.

Thanks for this question

Please don't forget a positive rating. I appreciate it.

If you have more questions, just reply

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
