Hi was on 30 minutes ago about rash and swollen foot I can pay for trial now had no card earlier
JA: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?
Customer: Few days rash about 2weeks
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: no just allergic to penicillin

Good morning. I am Dr Elliot. How can I help?

Hi have rash on my left foot toes mainly for about 2 weeks it’s swollen now and painful to walk on since this morning I got cream for fungal infection from pharmacy 3 day’s ago

Thank you. Could you send a photo?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Will try now

Okay thanks

Think photo is here

Thank you. Is it warm to touch? Compared to surrounding skin that is

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Not sure maybe small but swelling seems to be moving back towards ankle

Okay thanks. My concern is that this could be a cellulitis (a bacterial skin infection). I do not think a topical fungal cream would do very much and feel you probably need antibiotics, I would also try and get this treated today.

Can you attend a local walk in centre? or alternatively call 111 and speak to a GP who would be able to prescribe for you and sent you a prescription if they agree?

Please could you do this now to ensure this can be started today please

Please could you also rate my response to your question, this is the only way that I can be credited for answering questions, thank you

They are indeed, just depends on which area and availability. Alternatively use a walk in centre, I can help you with finding one if needed
