This is not a telemedicine website, unfortunately.

The website is only meant to provide medical education and answers specific to your questions only.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

I know that’s not what you want to hear right now.

I would be happy to answer any other medical concerns you have.

A prescription of any kind here would be both illegal and malpractice

The website is not authorized to issue any prescriptions or notes or referrals.

An urgent care center can do that for you.

I am just a messenger, I am afraid.

Sorry again.

You may contact;

You may call NHS 111 or urgent care on this link;

For the pain, the following would help;

Combination of paracetamol and Ibuprofen 8 hourly.

Local clove oil.

Local application of Benzocaine or Lidocaine gel.

Warm salt water gargles.
