I don't believe I have any std or Sti. Also, I did research this in Google but the closest was something like muluscum contagum ( I spelled it wrong) but it didn't look the same
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Okay thank you

Also, there is no leakage if any kind with either the bump or the crater like depression. When I press on the depression it feels as though it is "empty underneath it if that makes sense

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.These appear to be due to a bacterial infection of the skin caused by Staphylococci/Streptococcal infections and is called Impetigo.The infection may be transferred from one place of the body by touch as this can spread by touch.Always wash your hands after touching one of these,avoid scratching.Use of oral antibiotics like Augmentin(Amoxicillin and Clauvinic Acid) or oral cephalosporins like Cepodoxime will help in healing these skin lesions.The antibiotic may be needed to be taken for 10-14 days.Other members in the family may have a similar infection which will require simeltaneous therapy .

Thank you. Do I need a prescription for this? I am currently without health insurance and don't have enough money to afford a clinic visit as I am preparing to move states
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Yes,you will need a prescription for these drugs from your PCP.

I hope I have done enough to earn a five star rating,(the stars are above and to the right of the answer box).
