the medicines prescribed by doctor worked wonders and the next day I could see that the infection didn't spread and no pain. Followed the medication for 5 days the infection is completely gone.
Visited Doctor for the first time after searching in net, very much satisfied for her treatment and suggestions of her lotion and tablet. it really works well and could see the changes / results in 2 days. I appreciate for her patience about inquiring and listening to our problems completely. Also prescription was very simple with a single lotion and a tablet, that is giving good results.
