Hi, I’m currently traveling in Thailand and have what started as a bit of athletes foot fungal infection (stubborn symptoms that have recurred a few times including blisters) a few of the blisters opened (and I lanced a couple with hypodermic needle) yesterday morning. The site has since become incredibly painful and sensitive to touch, do you think this means it has a secondary bacterial infection now too? I was attempting to keep the area sterile but it is difficult in my current environment. I have some recently expire doxycycline
hyclate 100mg with me (10/12/17), I am allergic to penicillin
and can’t take that.Should I just start taking the doxy or try to see a doctor here?
JA: Have you used Doxy or anything similar before?
Customer: Yes, I used it when I had a stubborn staph in my underarms
JA: Have you used anything besides Doxy for this?
Customer: No antibiotics, I just started a topical antifungal last night and had been using tee tree oil before that
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I’m in Thailand competitively fighting Muay Thai so I would like to resolve this properly and as quickly as I can.
