Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

Got it--thanks

Is that either sore or itchy?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it is sore and raw she says it feels 'wet'
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

OK

It's a fairly significant cellulitis--infection

Normally I'd suggest Neosporin ointment twice a day for a week but I think a better idea would be for her doctor to see this since I'd prescribe her two weeks' worth of doxycycline antibiotic to treat it

Please let me know if you need any more information

are you able to prescribe the medication?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
is it contagious?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

It's not contagious

We don't prescribe here--that would be both illegal and malpractice

But she can first try the Neosporin

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
