No problem

Is the blister intact?

Any redness surrounding it?

Email is fine
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 6 months ago

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

Right now there doesn't sound like there's any infection involved here and the mupirocin and bandage is fine

No need to see a doctor today--tomorrow would be fine

Please let me know if you need any more information

Happy Holidays

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.

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.
