What did you need to know about this?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My doctor said that he suspects it’s contact irritation. I just wanted to check that it’s not something else?
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

Contact irritation as in an allergic reaction?

Is it either sore or itchy?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It felt like a splinter initially. It’s sensitive to the touch and was warm initially. It started about a week ago after a gym session with weights.
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

OK

It's definitely just an infection that should respond to the antibiotics

But nothing serious

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
