Question: Hello Dr.
My daughter is having some skin problem, some blisters on skin. Initially it happened on thigh but we ignored and applied some medicine.
The initial 3 blisters are now I think cured. Please check 1st photograph.
Now 1 more we are seeing on stomach. I think 1 more is going to happen on leg.
We are worried. I have an appointment with doctor tomorrow.
Could you please help me out.
Regards,

Brief Answer:
Oral antibiotic in addition to T Bact cream

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

She may also require an oral antibiotic syp which would be dosed according to her age and body weight. Since i am not aware of her age/body weight therefore you may get the oral antibiotic prescribed from a local doctor. You may use T Bact cream in addition to oral antibiotic.
