Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

where are these skin lesions?

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : On My feet
Dr. David :

they sound infected if there is pus

Dr. David :

they could be a fungal infection on your feet.

Dr. David :

that has become infected.

Dr. David :

pus is a sign of infection.

Dr. David :

sounds like you need to get a course of antibiotics from a doctor.

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : I didnt scratch at all but thé bumô grows larger .why?
JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : And why doeS another sprat
Dr. David :

possibly from the infection.

Dr. David :

if they are oozing pus, it could be the pus which is making them larger.

Dr. David :

I didn't understand that.

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : Appear after one has healed
JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : Sorry
Dr. David :

probably because one got infected and now it is not healing.

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : Why does more appear after one has healed
Dr. David :

bacterial must have gotten into one of the sores

Dr. David :

and caused the infection.

Dr. David :

you can try antibiotic ointment like neosporin

Dr. David :

but most likely you need an oral antibiotic treatment course.

Dr. David :

do you have a doctor you can see who can give you some antibiotics?

Dr. David :

like penicillin?

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : Will something like augmentin work
Dr. David :

yes, that might help

Dr. David :

that should work.

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : My mom dosent really want to vs
JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : Carry me
Dr. David :

your mother doesn't want to carry you?

JACUSTOMER-zjmsaxpz- : So that y am seeking an online doctor

that is against federal law in the USA.
