Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you been seen for this as yet?

few months. saw doctor and she said buy antiseptic cream, must have something in it but have not

You mentioned that it improves and then recurs?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

After how long does it improve and after how long does it recur?

Customer:

sometimes goes down a little then fills up again. painfull when knocked

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that you need to get this checked up by a dermatologist or be referred to a dermatologist by your GP. I personally think that things like herpetic whitlow or a fungal infection should be ruled out.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?
