are you able to write a prescription

As we initially discussed, Answers here are for education and information.

Online prescription is illegal.

A personal exam is necessary to write prescription.

You would need some investigations like vaginal swab for the confirmation of the diagnosis.

Was this information helpful to you? I would be glad to answer any further questions.

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.
