Thank you for your question.

Dermadoc is not online now.

Do you like me to answer your query?

Where do you have the outbreak?

I'd like DermaDoc to answer... Isn't that what I paid for?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Outbreak is nowhere where a baby can touch
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

No problem.

As your question remained unanswered for long, I offered to help.

Please wait till he comes on line.

I suppose nobody knows when Dermadoc will be online and I could wait forever after paying to have a speedy answer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I believe I'm due a refund as I didn't get what I paid for. If I wanted to wait , I could just make appt to my regular doc.
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

I do not know when Dermadoc will be online.

I have not seen him for a while.

If you want answer from him only, please contact customer service.

Hello, Since this drug is not toxic, and application is away from baby's mouth contact, baby is safe if you use this product. Good luck.
