Thank you for responding to my question. Dr XXXXXXX my problem is not money. since i XXXXXXX t have insurance and a private Doctor, i can't just go to the emergency room and ask for these medicine. If i knew a doctor, i could pay the consult out ofmy pocket just to have those prescriptions. so you see, all i need is those prescriptions. Do you prescribe ? thanks again Dr XXXXXXX for taking the time.

Brief Answer: Due limitations,I can not prescribe directly. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back.. You can take Tab.ivermectin 12 mg weekly for 4 weeks. Apply benzyl benzoate lotion or gamma benzene lotion at night on affected areas at night Wash the area with water containing savlone. See, I am in different country, I can not prescribe any medicine directly due to limitations, you can understand, I can just guide you. But final treatment you have to take under supervision of of local registered doctor. I hope you got my point. Thanks. Dr. Ilyas Patel MD
