Customer Question

I have recurring zits/pimples in my nostrils. Especially my left side.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: For the last 6 months or so I keep getting zits inside my nose. They'll go away and without warning they'll come back. I've also dealt with sinus issues/infections for quite some time. I had sinus surgery about 2.5 years ago and felt very well until this past fall. Since then I've had more sinus infections and this recurring pimple issue.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Health Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This can be due to the resistant bacterial infection like MRSA.

A nasal swab should be tested.

MRSA can be treated with prescription Mupirocin 2% nasal ointment twice daily for 2 weeks.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Can you write a prescription for me?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

We do not offer prescription online due to the legal reasons.

But this can be prescribed by any doctor in your state

Best wishes
