What is your question?

I wrote the question above the photo. Does it look ok? Not infected? Hurts a little.

It is mildly infected.

It needs, at minimum, a prescription cream called mupiricin which your doctor or a doctor needs to prescribe for you.

You should be doing hot soaks at this point.

Epsolm salts added are good.

Mild infection.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

Warm washcloth in the tub with epson salt felt good. I also put Frankincense oil on it. Ok?
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I won't be able to get a prescription until Monday right?

If it does not clear up you can get a prescription, but any quick clinic can do that

We don't have a quick clinic. It hurts as I'm trying to sleep. Looks redder.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Should I just try to sleep? It's not really serious is it?
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I have Sarna. Is that good for it?

As I said, we are not going to treat you on line.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
