Dr. Brims :

You may have an allergic reaction, but I strongly suspect it may also be scabies, which is caused by a mite

Dr. Brims :

Unfortunately, I think you are correct

Customer: Would I be able to get a prescription for the scabies
Dr. Brims :

Unfortunately, we cannot prescribe medication on this site due to privacy and legal reasons

Customer: Do you know where I can get one?
Dr. Brims :

It must be provided by a doctor, you may call your doctor for an appointment, or go to an urgent care center, or call a telemedicine company to call you in a prescription
