I do
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 3 years ago
That needs immediate exam.
It looks like a staph infection, which can spread.....Go to any urgent care.
It can be MRSA.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Not if it is MRSA, in which case you need a prescription cream called mupiricin.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
