I have a small cut on my nose from a razor which has lasted a few months I have kept it clean and applied Germolene but it still hasn't cleared can you prescribe a cream to clear
It is not legal to prescribe on line.
This can be a chronic staph infection.
If you keep letting it go on, it can become serious.
You need to go to your GP, ask for a swab for the lab: as this should be tested before it is treated.
You will likely need a cream called mupiricin, which covers the staph bacteria well.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
