Brief Answer:
Ask your doctor for alternative

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
This website is to advice you and guide you for medical problems and health related problems.
We are sorry but we cannot provide you with meds from here and neither can you use this portal as a valid prescription for medications.
You need to talk with your doctor only regarding this and get a fresh prescription for some other alternative drug.
I can suggest that azithromycin ointment is also similar to erythromycin group. See if you can get that one.
Also for jock itch, we normally use soframycin or clindamycin containing ointments.
These are also good effective for jock itch.
But you need to get prescription from a doctor only.
I hope i have answered your query well.
If you have any more query kindly write back to me will be happy to answer them.
Thank you

Need to know: How to trace erythromycin-topical solution, -outside US/Canada, to see if it is marketed fer sale anywhere(were)? Solution = similar web site
fer tracing outa-print/production prescription drugs, or overseas drugs not
sold in U.S. Also: Yer nationalitie, and schooling: ??? If yer have trubble
with American(English) let me know. ... I will now check out yer 12 hr reply, rcvd
at same time today, at my Lie-bury terminal?
(contd) I have checked the pages concerning erythromycin-solution, 'on-line, but have found them all overwritten with a message: DISCONTINUED. Several products where involved. Can yer tell me when this action took place, & details? I seek:
Links, sent to my e-box, at my TCCL publick terminal, fer research data and historie on "erythromycin topical solution". Reason: It warks fer me, -always. Never failed. No more than 2 treatments required. Assumed Reason fer cancellation/discount = pill form dangerous and destructive. But $$$-profit made by overseas drug company offa large doses in pill, taken internal to stomach. Data reports on Ery-Topical Solution were rigged, -to show negative results, rather than blaming dangerous pill form. Scandal found and uncovered. Ergo, I need yer location nationalitie and politrix/slants/postures in yer med societies. I am connected with MEDLARS and its Medline in Bethesda, under GE-Contractor/ISO. My job: Research Mathematican & Critical Systems Analysis, -putting Health in Flutter (1962-63-2015) Mode. I am restricted, -fer now, to overt(published)Literature, -but concentrate onlie on American/English. ... OOPS!: I got around the French & German requirement, fer my short (OKIE) PhD in Applied Maths, 1944-49, in Stillwater OKIE. Date sent: Fry = 11-6-15, 3:09pm-cst. Wish: To collaborate on a publication/release, via W.H.(O'Bama)
in DC 20500.0001. Also should see: GAO(Congress) reports on Erythromycin
pill and topical solution products. Best now: Sold fer shots(direct input)
into bloodstream, fer curing temporarie (rheumatoid) arthritis?, -or a substitute??

Brief Answer:
I am not sure I can help you with this.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Thanks for following up.

Your post was not very clear.

Sir I am a physician from XXXXXXX and did my medical schooling from XXXXXXX I can find some online stores like healthwarehouse.com in the states ship erythromycin solution. But I have no clues how to trace the source of its production.

Yes there are topical erythromycin preparations that are marketed and sold on prescription elsewhere outside US/Cananda. But I don't think they are shipped to states.

Thank you

Skin infection, -dark red scab tissue on spine-skin,
and a new spot,dark red, no scale, on left hand, below index finger joint. It is new, 2 days ago, but itching
patch on spine, dark red patch, is 2 years young. I went to dermatologist, years ago.That guy disappeared. Dark red patch on spine is growing, slow. No prescription applied, except overthecounter preps, fer first aid/antibiotic, and athlete's foot. Is their a
conspiracy in OKie(Tulsa association) to refuse treatment fer dermatitis? Prescription needed, to replace
erythromycin topical solution 2%, -but its "discontinued"? Specialists in XXXXXXX in Dermatology needed, fer
address and appointment. Specialist onlie, not an MD-General practice. Hang-up: Program D requires cash
fer writing a prescription, if its covered. They charge me $8 to write it. Even fer overthecounter at Wally's.
I could use medical illustrations, -typical skin patches, dark red, to report the diagnosis or type(dermatitis). This is
separate fum my reported jock itch in crotch. #

Brief Answer:
you can use alternative to erythromycin

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
As i told you last time you can try using alternate to erythromycin like azithromycin ointment.
For jock itch soframycin or clindamycin ointment will be helpful.
The other questions cannot be answered here as I am from XXXXXXX and cannot help you with the problems occuring in your region. We can only advice or guide you how to deal with the health issues you are facing.
And for specialist in your area you can find on internet or local search.
Any conspiracy about dermatitis i do not feel any nation will be having any conspiracy against certain disease.
Kindly ask health relevant issues only here.
Kindly close the query if you do not have any more health related issues.
Thank you
