Hi Wallace,

My name is***** and I will be assisting you this evening.

We are not able to prescribe on this site, but there are some other sites that have physician services with prescriptive authority that could help. Some of these sites have a one time fee of about $50 (much cheaper than the ER or urgent care) and can send prescriptions to your local pharmacy. Please let me know if you would like some suggestions. In addition to the Ibuprofen, I would also recommend trying Benadryl 50 mg by mouth every 6 hours and Neosporin ointment.

Awe man. I paid the $25 thinking yall could because it says yall are licensed pharmacist.
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

I am a licensed pharmacist, but we cannot prescribe or dispense medication on this site.

If you need a refund, please let me know.

What is a good site that can help me
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

No problem. We are a question and answer site and so customers may sometimes ask my advice on where to get a prescription online, in which case I would offer the information for a positive rating. I have spent some time researching the online physician service sites...not all of them are legit.

If you would like to end the conversation here, I can certainly have the moderator take over to process the refund. Just let me know how you would like to proceed.

i would like a refund. And i will definitely give you a positive review.
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

I appreciate that:) The only thing is that a positive review indicates that you are satisfied with the service. If satisfied with the service, a refund is generally not in order. In other words, you are either happy (positive review) or unhappy (refund).

I mean you tried to help me but i thought this site prescribed because it said licensed pharmacist but you cannot prescribe. Therefore i really didnt get the service i needed.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i guess have the moderator take over for the refund process. Thanks again
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

I totally understand. I am going to send your question to the moderator so that you can get your money back. Thanks for trying out the site, though. Please stop back anytime in the future if you ever need a quick answer from a professional:)

Ok. I reviewed it. I think you definitely need antibiotics. This appears to be cellulitis or a skin infection.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
